Hospital food production is a complicated process which requires co-operation between all hospital staff. However, there is increased competition in the healthcare industry and the patients increasingly have better knowledge about food and nutrition and to help them to understand the quality of food service. Hospital food generally has a poor reputation despite recognition of the importance of good nutrition in patient recovery from illness. Improving food service quality in hospitals remains an underexplored issue and a difficult challenge because it includes both tangible and intangible issues. The delivery of a catering service in hospitals has become another challenge for over-stretched hospital budgets as hospital managers struggle to deliver high-quality food service to patients.
