Serving the Miners in Chile

Miners photoWhen 33 men became trapped in the San Jose mine near Copiapo, the Chilean Safety Association (ACHS) called on ARAMARK to help feed them. ACHS recognized the company’s extensive history, skill and experience in serving remote camps, innovative technology, and capabilities and focus on safety and wellness. Until the day of the miners’ rescue, ARAMARK worked closely with ACHS and global experts to provide a constant supply of fresh and nutritious food under some extraordinary conditions.

In one of the most remote regions of the country, ARAMARK used its innovation, expertise and technology to prepare hot, nutritious meals. We transported those meals across rugged terrain and used state-of-the-art processes to send them half a mile through the earth. In doing so, we provided the miners with good food that gave some small sense of the comforts of home.
