PKL wins Educatering Innovation Award

PKL are delighted to announce that we have won the Innovation Award at the 2011 Educatering Excellence Awards last night, for our joint work with Flourish.

PKL and Northamptonshire County Council (Flourish) worked together to enable 225 schools to provide hot meals for their pupils. The schools involved in the project had inadequate kitchen space, and in many cases, no kitchen facilities at all. To provide a solution, PKL and Flourish developed a range of specially designed modular kitchen solutions, which would provide these schools with instant hot cook kitchen facilities in a permanent kitchen building. The product was based on PKL’s existing KitchenPods (themselves a recent innovation to the marketplace), which were then developed to suit the needs of the schools in Northamptonshire.
