Oven manufacturer Unox UK has signed up as a corporate partner of the Master Chefs of Great Britain (MCGB), working together with the membership organisation to help achieve its objectives and support future culinary talent.
The MCGB, first founded in 1980, promotes all that is best about British cuisine to both the chef and the consumer. Its principal goals are to support the young chefs who will be Master Chefs of the future and to champion great British producers, growers, and manufacturers.
Unox UK is now a silver corporate partner, which will see the manufacturer supply products, training and advice to help support and nurture young talent. Unox will also have access to MCGB members for cross-promotional activity, advertising opportunities across MCGB marketing channels and attendance at key events including the Annual Lunch and Chairman’s Reception.
Scott Duncan, MD of Unox UK, said: “MCGB members are truly at the top of their profession and we know that many of them are already using Unox equipment in their kitchens.
“Being a corporate partner will give us the opportunity to work more closely with those members and with the senior committee members to help achieve MCGB’s goals of promoting Great British produce and supporting young chefs.
“We have ambitious growth plans for Unox in the UK, investing in our products, our people and our facilities. This partnership is a natural step for us to help give something back to the industry but also to keep learning and improving as an organisation.”
George McIvor, chairman of MCGB said: “We are always looking for organisations that share our commitment to quality and provenance to help us in achieving our goals. We’re delighted to have Unox on board and looking forward to working closely with them alongside our other corporate partners.”
Unox offers a range of products including convection ovens, Cheftop Mind.Maps combi ovens, Bakertop combi ovens, the Speed.Pro speed baking oven and the Evereo food preserver.
It has unveiled the new Speed-X, the first oven to combine the capabilities of a combi oven and speed oven with an additional self-cleaning feature, available for pre-order in the UK from January 2022.
