Portable Kitchens, a Ballymena-based associate of portable kitchen specialist PKL, recently provided the temporary facilities for Scottish Event Campus (SEC) Glasgow during the COP26 Climate Change Conference.
The SEC Food team had a requirement to further increase its food production and distribution capabilities across the SEC restaurants, cafes and conference suites to collectively support providing meals for thousands of world leaders, VIPs, delegates, journalists and staff during the gathering taking place between 31 October – 12 November 2021.
The temporary facilities included two Series 2000 Magnum Kitchens, one Series 2000 Mini Kitchen, two dry store rooms and four cold walk-in rooms. These facilities provided the SEC Food team with much increased cooking and food storage capacity.
The catering equipment that Portable Kitchens provided for the event included upright and undercounter fridge/freezers, 10/20 grid combi ovens, chip scuttles, fryers, hot/ambient serveries, salamander grills and a pasta cooker. This equipment was spread out across the entire campus at a numbers of different kitchens, halls and temporary marquees.
Mark Matthews, commercial director at Portable Kitchens, explained: “This was quite a complex build over several locations within the campus. It was a pleasure to partner SEC Food on this venture to deliver quality sustainable food to world leaders and delegates.”
