With the FOOD project to new customers

With the FOOD program, we support restaurants for a long time with the aim of improving the eating habits of employees during lunch.  

Where to eat really healthy?

At the present time, when the prices of lunches are constantly increasing year-on-year, diners are starting to consider more about where they will go for lunch. We know from recent surveys that they expect a high-quality, healthy and balanced lunch for their money.

If you also think that variety and quality are the future of Slovak gastronomy, join our FOOD program. Thanks to it, users of Edenred meal vouchers and meal cards can easily find your restaurant that meets the requirements for healthy eating.

FOOD program (Fighting Obesity through Offer and Demand) was created in 2009 as a response to the alarming statistics of growing obesity in Europe, where more than 52% of adults are overweight or obese. It was created on the initiative of the EU and its goal is to promote quality and balanced eating during the day. In cooperation with you, the restaurants, we have been putting together a network of restaurants for over 10 years, which strive to improve the nutritional values ​​of the meals offered and meet the criteria of the program.
