MKN is celebrating after being voted ‘Manufacturer of the Year’ by FCSI consultants impressed with its FlexiChef multifunction cooking unit.
The German manufacturer was informed of its win at last week’s regional FCSI conference in Warsaw, which was attended by the UK’s top catering consultants.
The FlexiChef can cook a complete dish with different time and temperature requirements concurrently, leading judges to hail its “distinguished, innovative development design”.
The equipment was also praised for its “numerous applications and effect on overall kitchen design as well as its attributes in energy, utilisation and self-cleaning technology”.
Stuart Long, UK sales and marketing director for MKN, said the company was over the moon to receive the award.
“The Flexi Chef, which is like having an extra chef in your kitchen brigade, has done us proud and will undoubtedly continue to flex its muscles as the new dimension in productivity, allowing chefs to increase cooking speeds, ensure hygiene standards are met and save money,” he said.
The FCSI’s Manufacturer of the Year recognises a corporate member who has demonstrated exceptional innovation in product research, design, and development.
