Since 1968 Aladdin’s customer-driven innovations have led healthcare foodservice to new heights of quality, efficiency, safety and patient satisfaction. Our breakthrough technologies make meal delivery more efficient for foodservice operations, and mealtime more enjoyable for everyone.
When Aladdin invented the insulated tray in 1968, the dream of keeping patient meals at the proper temperature became a reality. Even today, Aladdin insulated tray systems remain an option for traditional food service applications.
In 1978 Aladdin introduced Temp-Rite® II, the first rethermalization system designed to heat meals in a refrigerated environment. In 1988, after extensive research and development, Aladdin created Temp-Rite® II Excel, a radically new conduction system that features a round-dish meal service. In 2003 Aladdin’s continued focus on listening to customers led to the development of Convect-Rite III®, an advanced Cook-Chill convection system that enabled precision rethermalization of hot foods while cold foods remained chilled, all on the same tray. Now Convect-Rite III® is the most popular cook-chill system.
Aladdin revolutionized meal assembly tray lines in 1995 with our patented Heat On Demand® induction technology, and in 2004 applied this technology to the creation of Heat On Demand® On Tray™, the first meal delivery system with the heat source built into the tray. Today, Heat On Demand® offers a number of induction systems for room service applications.
