The specialist for food distribution solutions
FRENCH PRODUCTS, 100 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, SOLUTIONS DESIGNED IN LYON TO MEET EACH OF YOUR FOOD DISTRIBUTION AND SERVICE NEEDS.
Electro Calorique is one of the main players in the distribution of meals in the hospital sector and is the driving force behind thermo-contact reheating. Our main objective: to allow you to serve a healthy and tasty meal without altering the nutritional qualities of your preparations.
To find the oldest traces of ELECTRO CALORIQUE, you have to go back to 1919!
Already specialized in the production of heat through electricity, it was in the 1950s that the Lyon-based company specialized in the distribution of meals in hospitals.
Thanks to its innovative environment, the company has filed numerous patents that will change the way food is distributed in France and around the world: cold link, trays without handling or glycol water cooling have been developed by ELECTRO CALORIQUE and are now part of the standards in the sector.
Electro Calorique has been able to put proximity with its customers at the heart of its development, which has pushed the company to innovate ever more and to devise tailor-made solutions. Knowing how to question oneself, to shake up what has been achieved, are part of the DNA of our group and of the employees who make it up.
The Future is already an integral part of the daily life of our R&D teams, as is the evolution of the ambulatory in your facilities, the deployment of digital technology, robotics and the automation of tasks. All these issues are subjects that we do not leave aside in order to anticipate your future needs.
We make it a point of honour to manufacture products that best respect our planet and its inhabitants. This requires the longevity of the products, the choice of materials and suppliers (80% are located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, very close to our production centres). Of course, we ensure the end of life of our products by recovering them from your establishments and recycling raw materials such as stainless steel, which is once again found in our future trolleys. In this way, we are part of a virtuous circle to improve our carbon footprint and preserve our natural resources.
