Two PKL products, the Space Station and Garbage Guzzler, have been added to NHS Shared Business Services’ procurement framework. This should make it easy for public service providers to purchase and hire them.
The Space Station is a self-contained modular servery that allows any catering operation to set up a café facility almost anywhere. Its compact, mobile design should enable it to be easily moved between different locations to take advantage of higher footfall, and it can be quickly set up and packed away.
The Garbage Guzzler is an on-site organic waste digester that can reduce food, cardboard packaging and horticultural waste by 70% in as little as 24 hours.
Both products address issues faced by public sector caterers: the Space Station opens up new revenue streams and can be a ‘queue buster’ and the Garbage Guzzler helps reduce organic waste costs.
The NHS SBS Framework is a management and procurement service that helps public sector organisations easily source skills and products without going through a long, expensive and complicated tendering process. Every company on the framework has been vetted and checked to ensure quality.
PKL MD Lee Vines commented: “I’m really pleased to see these two products added to the framework because I know how much difference they can make to hospital and other public service operations.
“The Space Station is the perfect way to bring in new revenue streams from underused spaces and reduce queues at points of congestion. The Garbage Guzzler is a revolutionary product that will change the way caterers think about organic waste, reducing disposal costs and offsetting overheads.”
