Frima has won its first ever order for a VarioCooking Center from a UK primary school.
The unnamed school in Hackney has had the system installed following construction of a new kitchen designed by Carlos Clarke of Norwich-based CDIS-KARM Consultants.
The fit-out has been done by Liverpool-based Promart.
The project brief called for a modern, energy-efficient kitchen on a small footprint.
Work started at the beginning of August and will be completed in time for the new term in September and the introduction of Universal Free School Meals.
“The primary school sector is a new market opening up for us,” said Graham Kille, managing director of Frima UK.
The model being installed is the new, compact VarioCooking Center Multificiency 112T.
“The unit is perfect for small kitchens and adds great flexibility to the operation,” said Kille. “It also gives us the opportunity to reduce manual handling and the washing of heavy pots, which is great news for the kitchen staff.”
