Rieber has launched the JVA Secure Meal System for hot or ambient meals. Chilled food can also be delivered using pre-frozen eutectic plates.
The meal delivery system could provide a solution for feeding those in isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic, preventing the spread of the virus.
With minimal handling and contact required, JVA meal delivery trolleys have a capacity of up to 40 or 60 meals.
A door element with removable heater provides digitally controllable circulating hot air, and heated models have a temperature range up to 100°C.
Different door configurations are available, for example, a 60-meal capacity two-door trolley or with an additional central section for beverage dispense or cupboard use.
The trolley is designed to work in narrow spaces. Made of stainless steel it has a hinged doors that can be opened to 270 degrees.

Each cupboard is ready to connect, with an on/off switch, dummy socket and spiral cable.
