Camile’s Coronavirus COVID-19 Updates

UPDATED APRIL 16: reopening collections

With the evolving coronavirus crisis, we are reviewing our processes on a daily basis, with health & safety of course at top of mind. Having had time to reflect, we feel the time is right to re-open for collections with added restrictions (whereby guests will not be able to enter the premises). We will only continue to do this if we feel we can protect our guests and staff. This applies to the vast majority of branches – check your local branch status here.

For collection by foot, the following system will be enacted:

1.) Guest arrives at branch keeping safe social distancing on marked areas outside.

2.) Phones Camile to say they are outside (phone number of branch will be on a poster at the door). There will be a table across the doorway preventing guests from entering the premises. Payment must be arranged over the phone or through online ordering – no cash accepted.

3.) Collection order brought to front door put on table and customers name called out

For collection by car, the following system will  be enacted:

1.) Guest arrives at branch

2.) Phones Camile to say they are outside, where they are parked and description of car

3.) Collection orders delivered to boot of guests car (contactless transaction)

 

We are hopeful that this process will ensure a much better and safer process for both our staff and guests. Thanks for everyone’s help and participation in this! Stay tuned for further updates.

 

UPDATED MARCH 26:

We will be switching to a delivery-only service across all of our restaurants for the duration of the COVID-19 crisis. No collection, takeaway or dine in services will be available.

 

UPDATED MARCH 18:

We have created a live document so you can keep up to date with your local Camile branch’s procedures during COVID-19.

UPDATED MARCH 17:

We have updated our measures for Camile Dine In and Collection Services.

 

DELIVERY: Our delivery service is operating fully, we want to continue to offer our at home food service to the community and will continue to do so, whilst maintaining stringent safety procedure. “No Contact Delivery” is available by writing this in your delivery notes, or mentioning it on your phone order. Please pay with card where possible.

 

COLLECTION: Our branches are now operating as a collection and takeaway service. If you would like your food delivered to your car, please call the shop when you arrive.

 

We appreciate your support during this time and we’re doing everything in our power to keep you safe.

MARCH 13:

We’re bringing in new measures to make our deliveries even safer in light of global health concerns.

Here’s how. 

FOR DELIVERY. We will no longer accept cash payments for food deliveries until further notice to reduce the hand-to-hand exchange. We are also introducing a “no contact” delivery option to reduce interaction with our drivers. To avail, please write “no contact delivery” in your online delivery notes, mention it while ordering by phone, or wait for a phone call from your delivery driver. 

IN STORES. We are making disinfectant hand wash facilities available through our kitchens, restaurants, and delivery vehicles, with revised training for staff on personal hygiene. Any staff member with symptoms will be encouraged to stay home and self-isolate. If this happens, you will be the first to know.

We understand some customers are very concerned about possible risks, so we are taking this initiative to reassure you and keep Camile the healthiest, safest place to get your dinner.  Thank you!


Camile Thai Kitchen to land in Dublin Airport

 

We are thrilled to announce Camile Thai Kitchen is one of a series of Irish food brands to be opening new locations within a massive Dublin Airport renovation from concessionaires SSP. Our 32 locations are situated across Ireland and London, and with a scope for international presence in the near future, the Dublin Airport presents a perfect opportunity to connect with a worldwide audience. We will be situated in both terminals, providing food for those on both sides of departures and arrivals.

The new tender provided by SSP features a number of elements that fit in with our brand promise, namely the introduction of higher-quality food brands with a focus on sustainability. As you may remember, we recently made news by providing the first 100% compostable takeaway packaging in the country, and continues to provide lower carbon-footprint meals for guests including vegan and locally sourced dishes. Our bok choy and kale are grown just up the road from the airport in Rush, and with 100,000 people making their way through the airport everyday, Camile hopes to herald the unmatched quality of Irish ingredients while giving them a distinct Thai flavour.

“Being future-led is a key part of the Camile brand. That’s why we’re thrilled to be joining this revolutionary tender project from SSP,  which promises brand new sustainable initiative and a variety of top Irish food brands we’re truly humbled to be a part of,” says Daniel Greene, Camile’s Head of Marketing. “We’re working furiously to create new offerings to fit this faster-paced environment, along with all the Camile favourites our Irish fans miss when they’re away. We can’t wait to take it to the skies!”

Camile introduce reusable cups to reduce single-serve packaging use

Camile Thai Kitchen, the healthy online delivery restaurant chain, has announced that they will be launching new reusable cups on a pilot basis for customers. These new modestly priced cups are designed to reduce the use of single-serve compostable paper cups, and so reduce Camile’s impact on the environment.

“While we were the first takeaway in Europe to introduce fully compostable packaging, we know it didn’t go far enough quick enough to make the differences we need,” says Caterina Liverani, Camile sustainability champion and London marketing manager.

“For too long, our industry has been paying lip service to the impact on the environment caused by single-use containers. We know this won’t solve the problem, but it is an attempt to try something different, and show there may be a better way forward,” she said.

Camile has been running a number of initiatives to reduce their impact on the planet apart from reusable cups. In 2019, Camile was the first takeaway chain in Europe to switch to fully compostable packaging, are are certified members of REPAK, and electricity is sourced from 100% renewable energy suppliers. From 2020, Camile are fitting free water refill fronts in all-new restaurants. Most recently, Camile is launching a meatless Chicken dish, made entirely from plants.
