Keiren eating Jelly

Looking for an opportunity to run their own business Rebecca & Chris became the proud owners of Rizo Desserts in 2013.

Why Healthcare desserts many asked?

Because they had both had beloved parents who had to go into aged care.  They knew how food was often the highlight of the day when someone is sick and infirm.   They  also learned that there is a shocking number of patients and residents who are malnourished.  Lack of appetite is a huge problem but appetite has to be encouraged.  And what they saw was that products available to Healthcare providers seemed to be limited in variety, and, dare we say, designed to suit supply chains first and consumers a distant second.

Chris and Rebecca are proud to be the owners of Rizo Desserts.  They are proud to put the consumers first and make taste and nutrition a focus.  They often get ex-patients ringing up and wanting to know how they can get their hands on the desserts once they leave hospital!   And that is not what you expect to hear when it comes to Healthcare food.

Their mission is to ‘Feed the Sick and the Elderly‘ and they plan to go on producing delicious and authentic tasting desserts and jellies.  Real recipes made with lovely Australian ingredients and proudly manufactured in Melbourne.

After all, chances are that we will ALL have to spend time in a Healthcare institution in the future and we, also, will be hoping for a highlight or two on our tray🙂
