Today, table culture is part of the academic campus concept. This development is demonstrated impressively in the cafeteria of the Regensburg University of Applied Sciences (RUAS), which opened in 2006. Together with the library, it forms the architectural center of the campus.

The cafeteria also opened a new chapter with the choice of porcelain – Dimension from Bauscher. Every culinary creation can be covered using just a few items. The tableware and the individually developed patterns underscore the high standards.
The gently curved design of the plate is emphasized by a red band.

Coupled with the highest functionality, this modern esthetic was so impressive that the cafeteria of the University of Regensburg (UR), which reopened in 2009, also adopted this concept. Serving up to 6,000 meals daily demands highly organized procedures in narrow timeframes and the most state-of-the-art cleaning systems.

The Freie Schule Anne-Sophie located in Künzelsau, Germany is a school that sees itself as a place to learn combined with the sense of well-being. The architecture, the learning structures, and the pedagogic support create a positive environment.

A highquality nutritional concept is an integral part of this. The value of healthy eating is taught early. The learning partners are introduced to cook in kitchens suitable for children, and nutrition is part of the lesson. At lunchtime, they eat together with the learning guides. One wholesome meal and one vegetarian meal are offered each day.

Since 2010, about 650 meals a day are served on the Options, Maître, and Dimension collections from Bauscher. The selected items are decorated with the school’s logo and fully tailored to the needs of their school catering.

Jim Block has upgraded the hamburger. Since 1973 the selfservice restaurant chain has proven that burgers can be marketed as a premium food, too. The idea: combining stylish ambiance with uncomplicated cuisine, while guests enjoy attentive and highquality service. The meals are prepared in front of the guests using fresh ingredients. Block Burgers made from the best beef are grilled, and the salads freshly prepared, only when orders from guests are received.

The food is served on high-class, decorated porcelain: Options, Function and Bonn are a perfect fit here. The concept behind the range was coordinated between Bauscher and a specialist retailer and then customized to the specific operating
procedures of the restaurants.

Can a large-scale catering facility get by without trays?

If they dare to be bold, they can. Since the move to Feldkirchen, Germany in 2007, Brainlab – a worldwide market leader in computer-supported medical technology – has broken new ground in company catering together with the operator ‘food for thought’.

Instead of standard trays, the modern showboards from Modulus are used to transport meals. They have also dispensed with the weekly meal menu. Instead, guests are inspired by what is on offer to spontaneously make a selection. The cuisine consists of almost exclusively freshly prepared items and is influenced by modern culinary trends.

The round and rectangular plates from Options and the presentation possibilities from Modulus open up creative room for the cooks to showcase their dishes.
