Food & Drink International Magazine profiles Unidine

Dietitians answer patients' questions

Tim O’Connor of Food & Drink International Magazine spoke with Richard Schenkel, Unidine’s founder and CEO, about why he started the company in 2001, what drives its success today and his vision for the company’s future.

“When Unidine developed its Fresh Food Pledge the dining management company had to think about what “fresh food” really was. Other businesses may stretch the definition, but for Unidine Founder and CEO Richard Schenkel it boiled down to the simple concept of cooking from scratch. “It’s really what separates our brand and our competitor brands,” he says. “It’s the only way we operate our business.”
