German health insurance company BKK Provita recently published a guide to plant-based nutrition for hospitals and healthcare facilities. The guide aims to help clinic managers and catering professionals implement plant-based meals in healthcare facilities by providing information on plant-based nutrition, its health and environmental benefits, and comprehensive instructions for making changes within a clinical setting. The guide was developed by the consulting firm A’verdis, the BKK ProVita, and the German Hospital Institute in cooperation with 30 experts, including hospital cooks, caterers, nutritionists, and clinic managers. “At BKK ProVita, we know [that] plant-based nutrition is healthy,” Andreas Schöfbeck, CEO of BKK ProVita, said. “As a statutory health insurance company, we are committed to making this form of nutrition better known and to ensure that as many people as possible have access to it. With the new guide, we are supporting the health not only of patients but also of hospital staff in the context of workplace and external health promotion.”
