We are excited to share some important news about the café services at our Malvern and Brighton campuses.
Earlier this year, to ensure these café services continued to meet the needs of our visitors and customers, Cabrini invited submissions from external providers to operate this essential function.
We are pleased to announce, following a competitive tender process, Zouki has been selected as the successful provider to continue this service. Zouki will commence operation on 1 December.
Zouki have significant experience in the healthcare sector, servicing more than 20 major hospitals across Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT and NSW.
We look forward to working with Zouki and believe this partnership will provide significant benefits to our patients, visitors and staff.
Over the coming months, our cafés will be upgraded to support the increased functionality and capacity of Zouki, to ensure these spaces continue to be welcoming and comfortable for patients, visitors and staff. The cafés will continue to operate during the refurbishment period.
This partnership will increase food choices for our customers and will include the introduction of the Victorian Government Healthy Choices Guidelines traffic light system to assist people in making informed choices about their food purchases.
Our café staff are an integral part of Cabrini and we value their continued professionalism. Cabrini has committed to supporting affected staff through this transition period. There have been no job losses as a result of this change. We are pleased to advise that some staff have already commenced new roles within Cabrini and others will be redeployed over the coming weeks or they have accepted a role with Zouki, our new provider.
The Cabrini Mission and Values are integral to everything we do and the relationships we have with our patients, staff and stakeholders. We are pleased to advise that Zouki share our commitment to the community through the development of local employment and supply opportunities, philanthropy and sustainability.
We look forward to welcoming you to our new café’s on December 1.
