Fazer Food Services to provide restaurant services to Salo IoT Campus
As of January 2018, Fazer Food Services will provide restaurant services to the Salo IoT Campus business park in Salo, Finland. The Fazer Food & Co restaurant on the campus will be open to companies and students in the area, as well as to other guests. More options will be provided by the Hav a Java café environment as soon as the renovations are completed.
Fazer Food Services will run the restaurant and café operations at Salo IoT Campus as of 2 January 2018. The restaurant and the café will both be open to everybody. “Businesspeople, students and everyone else in Salo are welcome to enjoy what we have to offer,” says Fazer Food Services’ Director, Concession Kristiina Ramirez.
Eating habits, health trends, and lunchtime meals are all undergoing major changes. Domestic origin, traceability and accountability are important to Fazer. “We want to be a pioneer in what and how people eat in everyday life,” says Ramirez. “As with our other restaurants, on the Salo IoT Campus we will also always use seasonal ingredients and organic food whenever possible.”
The Salo IoT Campus is a modern ecosystem that brings companies, colleges and researchers together under the same roof to develop their expertise and knowledge in the industrial internet. In addition to providing state-of-the-art facilities, the campus also provides extensive services and support for business development.
“A lunch or coffee break is a great chance to take a breather during a hectic business day. In customer satisfaction surveys of work environments, restaurant services always come up as one of the most important factors in creating a pleasant environment for employees. We want to choose the best operators in the field as partners for Salo IoT Campus, which is why we wanted to work with Fazer Food Services,” says Salo IoT Campus CEO Jukka Vakula.
Seasonal dishes and delicious vegetarian options
The Kiila restaurant opens on the campus at the beginning of January, and is part of the Fazer Food & Co concept. The concept involves a relaxed atmosphere with enticing seasonal dishes, delicious vegetarian options, exciting new products from around the world, and healthy takeaway snacks. The restaurant personnel are on hand to receive customers and present the day’s offerings. The functions of the campus lobby will be renewed. Once the renovations are complete, the Hav a Java café environment will provide a relaxed urban atmosphere for employees, students and other guests in the area in search of a break in the day. The café will offer healthy salad and bowl dishes, as well as delicious snacks.
In addition to the lunch and café services at Salo IoT Campus, Fazer Food Services will also handle sales of meeting and conference facilities, and marketing of these. One of the ways in which the campus is highly versatile is that it is well suited to arranging many kinds of events, including larger events. “We want to do our part in creating a vibrant working atmosphere along with the other operators in the area,” Kristiina Ramirez says.
