Palmia was divided into two organizations from the beginning of January 2015. Catering services, despite personnel catering and meeting and banquet services, function as a part of the municipal enterprise Palmia.
We take part in the more than 80 000 occasions where people eat each day. The duty of the 850 professionals who work for our catering services is to improve the quality of life, whilst at the same time providing a pleasant atmosphere for both everyday life and for special celebrations.
We offer a wide selection of meals to answer the needs of people who have different tastes or require a special kind of diet for health reasons. Food hygiene and safety is guaranteed for each and every day of the year. We pay particular attention to the use of environment-friendly methods in our industrial kitchens and in the preparation of the meals we produce.
We are devoted to such issues as the quality of our work; product development; the organisation of catering services; and the latest technology employed in the systems we use, which guarantees our degree of competitiveness in the services we provide. Our services our certified in accordance with 9001:2000 quality standards.
The restaurant and kitchen professionals are well equipped to meet the very different kinds of challenges we have to face, from providing meals for school camps, to the preparation of gourmet lunches for parties at the Helsinki Town Hall. Special functions such as those arranged at the Villa Jyränkö and the Winter Gardens are managed by our banqueting-catering-service and may even include the decoration and furnishings necessary for these types of banquets.
