    The company canteen has been providing stale food from the past few days

    I am working in a software company. From the past few days I have noticed that the food served in our company canteen is stale. On complaining regarding this to the manager, he hasnít taken any action against this matter till now. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hi Dear,

    It's good that you have tried bringing the practice of serving stale food to the notice of your manager. Normally, the managers have the right to take such complaints to a higher level but they cannot get the service of the contractor, responsible for canteen food, terminated. You can always write a mail to the highest level of management in your organisation and also mark a copy of the mail to the human resource department so that this matter could be taken care of.

    Till the service of the contractor, who is serving stale food in your company's canteen, does not get terminated; please carry home made food or prepare your lunch on your own. That would be more hygienic and healthy.

    Take care..
    Ritz

    Hi
    You should probably right a strong application to your manager regarding the stale food in the canteen,
    You should also mention that if we continue to eat the stale food, then we will suffer from the food poisoning and then all of us would need to take off from the work and that is not a good sign for the growth of the company, therefore kindly look into the matter and provide the solutions accordingly.
    Gud luck

    This type of matters are comes under control of labour welfare officer of the company. He has to look after canteen stuff to be supplied to the employees every day. It is his one of the responsibilities.At the time of agreement with the contractor, HR department has to give some specific rules and conditions to the contractor regarding food to be supplied to the all the employees. He has to maintain that at any cost. If not, you all have to consult the head of the HR and request him about the problem you are being faced in written. So that HR head has to take appropriate action against the contractor and give him warning. But this should be continuous follow up other wise nothing may be happened. please make a follow up regularly with the concerned so that it may be fruitful.

    It a serious problem now what you have to do is that file a complaint application against all the staff members of your canteen because after all itís a matters your health. Write all the complain in this application like they are served the stale food to me and all the working members of our company please take a necessary step on this problem otherwise may be some of our company workers would be suffering from food poison in future.
    Thanking you hope you like my suggestion.

    Dear stale food is really harmful for the health and mainly for those who works for all days and gets tired and if they will get stale food then how they will gain energy to complete work and this will create laziness in employees and performance will be down that is why to save health and activity of the body, fresh food is mandatory to all

    If you have noticed that your office canteen is serving stale food to all employees then you should not say anything and try to catch them red handed because your boss is also not listening to you so you have to do everything. One day you should come without having breakfast from your home and go directly to the canteen where you get fresh breakfast so you should note that what is served to you in food and come back to the office and start working.

    When your go to canteen with other colleagues for lunch then you should see that again means you will find out the same food but that will be reheated by the cooks so accept and have that and mention everything to your colleagues and come back. Again follow the same process at next day and if you see that same food or few of the previous food served to you then you may directly talk to the canteen manager over this issue because you have seen the same food again in your dish and also take some of the colleagues with you who are trusted and raise your voice against canteen manager of the company

    Warn that person who operate canteen to not do it again otherwise you may take this matter seriously to the higher authorities of the company and you will loose your job and instantly you should go to the manager of the company and explain the entire incident and take your manager with you in canteen so your manager will take right action against this and if not then you all employees should force your manager to hire a new canteen manager because this is the question of your health and your manager will have to focus on this issue because this is not avoidable matter and say to your manager that either you instruct canteen manager to provide us fresh food while lunch or hire a new canteen controller so we could work for a long time in this company because if we get the same again then this food may affect our health that is completely bad for our health so your manager will instruct and warn that canteen controller

    If your manager does not take any action and shows no response then you all colleagues should keep a meeting and decide that you will bring your own home made food in the company and your manager will not deduct any sum of rupees because if the company will not provide fresh food then we do not have any other way expect bringing own home made food so your manager may understand your situation and will provide you facility of fresh food everyday

    All the best

    Hello Friend ,

    I can understand , how you are feeling for not getting a proper food in your Office canteen after complaining to the Boss also , but friend , one thing i would like to say

    that is , why only you are complaining alone , you can gather all your colleagues and say together so that action might taken then and there , or you can stop having your

    Lunch from the Canteen and start bringing your Lunch box from your home itself.


    HOPE IT HELPS ...

    hello friend,
    This is serious issue if not solved in time, because it could give birth to many diseases. I think if your manager has not taken any action than you should give him reminder to look into this issue. If manager does not responds you with reminder also then try to give number of reminders so that he looks into the issue as soon as possible. If still no action is taken then you should persuade your co-members to go in group and talk to manager. Talk with manager in calm way and ask him if he is not able to solve this issue then which concerned manager is to be contacted.
    In the mean time you can go to canteen workers and their head worker and warn them. You should warn in such a way that if you would not improve the food quality then they will consult higher authorities and this may lead to snatching of tender and giving to other staff.
    This may solve your issue.

    hello,
    it is not good at all on their part and you should definitely be against it and you should give them good lesson for this and if your boss did not respond then go to your higher officials and say them about the problem and ask them to taste the food what you are eating and say your higher officials about your boss that he is not taking any action if you give a complaint regarding the food.
    if the problem is solved then it is k or else go for strike untill they put a new one.
    thank you............
