Gloucester Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

We all like to eat and taste great foods from around the world, and some food are hard to keep fresh and the shelf life is reduced drastically ounce peeled. vacuum packing is the way forward to keeping the food looking the same and tasting the same, also increasing shelf life as if it was just cooked that day, locking in the flavours and the colour. The product is aimed at the public and the nursing homes and hospitals were they can be flexible with there menu and cater for the ethnic community more independently when purchasing the variety on the menu.

What we'll deliver:

  • work voluntary in soup kitchen
  • 1 fund raising event for prostate cancer

Why it's a great idea:

I have seen many Jamaican meals in the high street majour stores, but they never seem to sell very well as they don't keep the looks or the flavour. The taste is not authentic were its not cooked properly etc. I have discovered a way of doing all of this and cutting down on the mess of peeling and storing the food. This great idea will benefit the pubic & single people the elderly who live on there own, hospitals/nursing homes etc

Steps to get it done:

  • employe at leased 10 workers
