Ernest van de Voort As a board member of Albron, he is responsible for business development, marketing and concept development at Albron. Under his leadership, the independently operating caterer has invested heavily in expanding its concept portfolio with self-developed food concepts such as The Green House, and with existing and new licenses with attractive street brands for the shopping centers of Unibail Rodamco. Albron launched the Shift Happens app in June, with which guests register for a shift in the company restaurant in order to have a corona proof lunch. Albron makes the app available for free to fellow caterers and company restaurants in-house. Clear protocols have been agreed on the layout of the “new” company restaurant. A special Albron team has helped all clients to set up the restaurants according to these standards and thus determine the capacity.
