  • Reducing the risk of contagion (introduction of single-dose condiments, vegetables, sweets and fruit prepared in protected single doses and ready to be picked up independently - with the obligation to wear gloves - or delivered by our staff, delivery of bread to the user by the catering service operator, creation and display of specific signs on hygiene practices to be maintained).
