Helping Hertfordshire Independent Living Service thrive

Hertfordshire Independent Living Service logo

As a charitable social enterprise, it’s vital we find partners who share our values and support our vision.

apetito’s tasty, nutritious meals—and innovative texture modified range—have enabled us to help tens of thousands of clients stay healthy, happy, and independent in their homes.

Without the wonderful support of our apetito friends, we wouldn’t be able to make the impact that we do, 365 days a year! I couldn’t recommend them more highly.
