We serve hundreds of thousands of meals per day, in the most challenging environments, for clients including the United Nations, NATO, United States Army, Repsol, ENI, and many others.

Our Chefs are internationally certified and well experienced in preparing a range of meals for multicultural diners with differing tastes and requirements, including Kosher, Halal, vegetarian, vegan, special dietary, and nutrition specific. They focus on efficiently preparing and serving nutritious, safe and delicious food, in a clean and enjoyable environment. All of our meals are prepared and served in accordance with international health and hygiene guidelines, as recommended by FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission’s Code of Hygienic Practice for Recooked and Cooked Foods in Mass Catering, CAC/RCP 39-1993, HACCP and ISO 22000 FSMS (Food Safety Management System).

We also host regular BBQ evenings, and theme nights – such as Tex-Mex and Asian Fusion night. One of our most popular theme nights is our “Local Palate” evening, where we introduce local fresh foods to our clients.

To ensure our patrons total satisfaction, we are able to offer additional services, such as room/office service, take-away meals, and vending machines.

This includes constant performance, verification and recording of disinfection of equipment and utensils, cleaning of kitchen and dining areas, daily personal hygiene and health checks for staff, proper waste disposal, and temperature regulation of served and stored food. Special attention is placed at each identified control point of food safety and health and all personnel are trained in designated mitigation practices.

Nutrition

We seek to provide catering and food services that guarantee consumers a diverse, seasonal, and healthy diet. When customers choose Ciano for catering services, they choose a world-class caterer implementing the highest standards of health and hygiene protocols, with robust procedures and analysis of ingredients, suppliers, and in the preparation and distribution of meals.

Our food leaves our patrons feeling great, energetic, and positive. Our menus and ingredients are engineered to deliver the perfect nutritional balance, and our nutritionists are on-hand for persons with special dietary needs; tailoring dietary plans to each specific individual.

We account for individuals with specific conditions, with specific diets, such as low sodium diets for individuals with high blood pressure. Our chefs work with nutritionists to design the tastiest, healthiest menus, and our cutting edge software and equipment perfectly calculates the essential nutrition in each meal and menu, guaranteeing each one is balanced in terms of fluid, adequate essential amino acids from protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and adequate calories.

We have structured a Nutrition Plan concept, which has several key focuses;

  • Simple, tasty dishes, derived from fresh, seasonal ingredients
  • Total omission of margarines, hydrogenated fats, glutamate, and other flavour enhancers
  • Promote the exclusive use of vegetable fats, with a preponderance of olive oil
  • Healthy cooking techniques with reduced timing; in order to preserve and maintain the organoleptic characteristics of high quality ingredients

The key metric is the Body Mass Index (BMI). By monitoring the BMI we can effectively avoid weight-gain and reduce the occurrence of cardiovascular disease. Due to our focus on the BMI, we now install easy to access multi-media totems at each of our catering locations, which enable our patrons to calculate their BMI regularly and select dishes that best suit their dietary profile. The BMI and dietary recommendation system is integrated in to our menu database system, to position our patrons to make informed decisions when selecting their dishes. The system works by the user accessing their profile and seeing the dish options available on that day, and which, based on their dietary needs, are recommended for them.
