SECPhO, the cluster foodservice and the SERHS FOOD company work together to develop a solution that will improve the safety and efficacy of feeding of the patients with dysphagia.
Due to the aging of the population, dysphagia or difficulty for swallowing food, can be caused by a physical or mental problem and represents problems both to swallow liquids and solids. Based on parameters such as viscosity, texture or adhesiveness, among others. A group of companies and research centers in the ecosystem of SECPhO work to develop a solution that can be integrated in the production of SERHS FOOD and other social restoration companies, which allows to standardize some parameters of the food for patients with dysphagia.
SECPhO has so far proposed some solutions with entities such as ATRIA Innovation, CD6-UPC, VISIONA, Eurecat and Álava Engineers. The challenge come up from an intercluster between SECPhO and the Foodservice Cluster that took place on December 18 at ICFO.
Currently, they have been working on the initial stages of a project that can mark a before and after in the preparation of food for this type of patients, improving the lives of people with this difficulty, as well as the productive process of the companies, which will be able to certify their food with objective parameters.
SERHS Food is since its foundation a sensitive company with a continuous improvement, creation of value, innovation, respect for people and a strong sense of responsibility. These characteristics define our priorities that are related with projects such as the Special Centre of Work (CET) El Pla.
With the recent entry in the restoration management of the University Hospital Arnau de Vilanova of Lleida, SERHS Food will highly promote the growth and consolidation of this non-profit project that belong to Germà Benito Menni’s foundation. Located in Almacelles (Lleida), the center offers long-term and quality employment to people at risk of exclusion. The productive activity that develops the Special Centre of Work offers work to people with intellectual or physical disability, a diagnostic of mental pathology and/or with a risk of social exclusion certificate. This aim is achieved thanks to activities of alimentary packaging, plantation, gardening and enclave work.
In addition, this activity is carried out with a support team that will take care of the recruited person in a psychosocial and work environment level.
From SERHS Food we share the values of the CET El Pla: hospitality, quality, respect and responsibility. On these pillars we find our Corporate Social Responsibility structure with a clear goal: conciliate the economic growth and the competitiveness with the social development.
SERHS Food commitment with professionals and the environment has been, is and will always be a priority. In SERHS Food we are conscious of the importance of being the engine of a changing and demanding society that requires willingness to be an active part of its needs.
SERHS Food new website includes data of the origin of the aliments, as well as of services that provide to educational centres.
SERHS Food Educa releases its new website; with new content and design, the goal is to consolidate a relationship of closeness and transparency with families and schools. The main aim is to educate children and teenagers through a diet by a team of dedicated and specialized professionals. For example, the new website gives information about all types of services offered to schools, from the kitchen to transport and catering for especial events.
Moreover, the new website also considers the families need to know the origin of the food served to their children. Therefore, SERHS Food Educa facilitates data about the products used to cook the different menu dishes, empowering the “from the land to the dish” concept and turning it into a common interest for the company and customers.

We are committed with their education in one of the most relevant aspects: the diet. We stand up for a healthy diet, the respect of our planet, solid values and a good coexistence between colleagues, for example, in the school canteen.
SERHS Services, a new collaborator in this new age
The page has been created by the Department of Digital Communication of SERHS Services, inside Social SERHS, following the indications of the Commercial and Marketing Department of SERHS Food.
We followed the graphic line that SERHS Food Educa uses in his communicative elements for final consumers and schools: the students of the centres, the school’s staff and the own managers of schools’ canteens.
What’s more, we created a user friendly website design for www.serhsfoodeduca.com, making the user experience intuitive and simple; with a responsive design, adaptable to any type of screen without losing information and with a pleasant navigation on phones and computers.
On June 14th, Castelldefels Castle hosted the 1st Conference of the Foodservice Cluster of Catalonia dedicated to innovation under the heading “Innovation Day” with the aim of putting the focus on the latest trends and uses of ICT in the feeding sector. Raimon Bagó, general director of SERHS Food, has participated in this meeting to explain that “technology has helped us to adapt to the individual needs of users” in the field of collective catering.
For SERHS Food general director, “when it comes to making a meal, we have to put the person and their uniqueness at the centre of our activity. This is what a kitchen like the High Performance one of Mataró allows us to produce today”. The High-Performance Kitchen that SERHS Food launched in the capital of Maresme was precisely thought and designed to offer a kitchen tailored to the individual needs of the users of collective catering. For this reason, its facilities allow the elaboration of specific recipes, for example, crushed, textured and allergen-free meals, among others.
SERHS Food bets for its collective catering service to become a reference in the preparation of recipes aimed, essentially, to individual satisfaction, while responding to nutritional criteria within a varied and rich food proposal. In addition, as Raimon Bagó explains, “this is what makes us different from the rest, thinking about the uniqueness, the diversity of each of our users. And all this, with the maximum guarantees of food safety, product quality and efficient and professional management”.
Raimon Bagó, Foodservice Cluster of Catalonia new president
The day also served so that Raimon Bagó, until now vice-president of the entity, left chosen like new president. In his speech he thanked the trust placed and strongly highlighted the work done by the president so far, Jaume von Aren, who valued the commitment and dedication of the first years.
The new president of the entity highlighted the new challenges that Cluster Foodservice has today and the obligation not to lower the standards. “Work and collaborate with the 53 companies that are part of this organisation, to continue drawing, defining and strengthening the strategic lines of Cluster Foodservice in the coming years”.
Since its establishment, in January 2014, Cluster Foodservice has contributed to forge the relationship with all the companies that are part of it. Companies of diverse scope such as production, logistics, collective catering, new technologies or research and knowledge. This diversity is the great strength of this transversal and dynamic sector, which at the same time involves a strong complexity of coordination and management.
Corporate&Events SERHS Food business unit, dedicated to event organisation, presents a new website. Following the strategy based on remarking Castell Jalpí and ARCS Catering contrasts on its differing offert, SERHS Food has decided to create two independent websites. Although both business have mutual feedback, they generate different goals and, therefore, a corporative image change on the strategy was strongly necessary. ARCS Catering new website is entirely visual and direct and notably improves user experience navigation.
This new website is structured in 6 categories in which there is gastronomic information and a small brief of different business celebrations, corporative events and wedding proposals. Furthermore, it offers a wide range of spaces where ARCS Catering manages its event caterings preferentially.
With ARCS Catering website renovation, we present a user experience integral vision focused on multi-device navigation, taking the “responsive device” (adapted to mobile devices) as a currently web design reference guide.
Thanks to this incorporation, this web design adapts to the device size and text, image and video dimensions get actualized on its own in a way that is perfectly legible and avoids text and image overlapping areas.

SERHS Food celebrates the first anniversary of the official inauguration of the High-Performance Kitchen in Mataró
Over this first year, the plant has increased its production by 40% and continues with a high rate of growth.
One year later, the commitment to innovative and efficient solutions to bring comprehensive support to managing professional catering is a success in every sense of the word. This Saturday April 21, the Mataró High-Performance Kitchen of SERHS Food, as well as its central offices, mark one complete year since their official inauguration, in which national authorities and those of the Maresme area took part.
As of today the plant, which covers 2500 m2, has increased its production by 40% and continues to grow at a very good pace. Over this first year, one of the mostly highly-rated spaces of the SERHS Food High-Performance Kitchen has been the independent allergen-free kitchen, which offers services principally to educational and healthcare centers.
Nevertheless, the office area and main arena have seen numerous visits from clients and companies interested in seeing the installations which reflect the philosophy of SERHS Food. This philosophy is directed at the commitment to prepare food products of the highest quality, following the basic principles of traditional cooking, and availing of the latest technology capable of providing the very highest standards of food safety and environmentally-friendly production.
During the circuit, especially designed for groups, all the steps making up the production process can be seen, from reception of the raw materials to the packaging of the finished product. Likewise, the main arena, with seating and a “showcooking” area, is often used for workshops, demonstrations and conferences, thus complementing visits to the installations.
Today, SERHS Food has a strong presence in Catalonia and is engaged in a major drive for growth in the Balearic Islands, Valencia and other parts of Spain. The Mataró High-Performance Kitchen has been devised with great versatility and flexibility to allow cooking of all kinds of recipes and formats for presentation and preservation, such as vacuum packing, ATM, pasteurization, sterilization and deep freezing.
