Through their research they have identified six kinds of worker: the older 'well-established' (22%), who expect generous, traditional catering; 'companions' (20%), who like a friendly, convivial atmosphere; work-hungry 'conquerors' (9%), who need high-energy food; 'explorers' (4%), who seek a la carte pleasures; the 'timid' (17%), who need only proletarian cooking; and 'volunteers' (28%), who are happy with a picnic or anything in Tupperware.
