Our Services

We provide professional dietetic and food service operations support across Ontario.  


Food Service Support

Working together with a LTC home’s team, we go above and beyond to provide customized services that suit individual food service management styles and residents’ needs, while focusing on enhancing the culinary and hospitality experience for residents.


Clinical Nutrition Services

Delivering person-centred nutrition services in long term care is our strength and it begins with great mentorship. We invest in our Registered Dietitians through: 

  • Education
  • Advocacy
  • Professional guidance
  • Building new skills

We believe in empowering future dietitians. Our participation in the positive transformation of the dietetic profession starts with supporting new and experienced RDs alike.

About Orange Lily Group

Our group was founded by Maria Biasutti, RD in 2020 to continue the important work that was started by J. Oulton and Associates over 40 years ago.

Orange Lily Group is a team of professional consultants. We support the dietary departments of many LTC homes across Ontario, Canada. In addition to food service support, we provide clinical nutrition services to LTC homes.

We have a core support team of Registered Dietitians and other professionals who work to reinforce our larger group of consulting RDs. This team provides strong guidance, assistance, and training to all of our consultants. This is how we are able to maintain a high quality of care in all the LTC homes we provide nutrition services to.

In addition to clinical nutrition experts, our support team is also made up of food service experts. We provide support to LTC dietary departments through training, policy & procedure development, auditing, equipment reviews and procurement, menu development and more.

Our Name

Our name comes from the orange lily flower. Lilies are a symbol of love, devotion and motherhood. The particular lily shown in the above picture was captured by Maria photographing her mother’s garden. At the time, Maria’s mother had recently passed away but her garden remained and it grew orange lilies. In a way, the flowers in the garden became a part of her legacy. To this day, the photo reminds Maria of her mother’s love and devotion. As a company, this symbol will continue to remind us of what truly matters: caring for others.
