The short but cold winter is over, March has already given us a taste of the fickle April weather and the first signs of the coming spring can be seen. Now it’s about being out in the fresh air and enjoying the warming rays of the sun. Spring means that we are outside more often; going on more long walks building up an appetite for something delicious.
Eating outside can be one of life’s great pleasures but it can also lead to unpleasant situations as Simone Graebner knows. Simone has an intolerance to gluten and also suffers from intolerances to legumes, tomatoes and onions to a lesser degree. She knows what it is like to feel like there is nothing she can eat when out yet have to travel a lot. To be labeled as “complicated” while ordering in a café or being seen to be in “poor health” by business colleagues during a business lunch can feel very uncomfortable as she knows. In fact, more and more people suffer from food allergies and intolerances and sadly expect health issues when dining out, even if the dietary requirements were communicated to the restaurant staff.
Simone Graebner would not accept that. After suffering through protracted and painful ordering arias for years she founded ENOMIS GmbH and developed under the motto “quality of life despite allergies and intolerances” the DELICARDO foodcard in 2009.
With the discreet and precise business-card sized card people can inform others of their special dietary restrictions without tedious lengthy explanations to the waiter and chef about their allergies and intolerances.
All the information on the cards has been checked by nutritionists and they are regularly updated and added to. The DELICARDO foodcard has carried the ECARF quality seal since November 2009 and was honored in 2010 with the Swiss AHA Award. In a recent customer survey, 100% of respondents confirmed that since they have been using the DELICARDO foodcard while eating out they have had less health problems and difficulties due to their allergies than without the DELICARDO foodcard.
Foodcards can be ordered via the online store at www.delicardo.com.
Personalised CONFIGURATOR DELICARDO foodcards that are tailor made to the individual’s food allergies and intolerances are available.
