A leading supplier of cooking equipment to fish and chips shops has just completed a £60,000 investment to its training school.
KFE, of Bentley Business Park, in Northfield Industrial Estate, Market Deeeping, has installed a state-of-the art grilling area and wet fish presentation area to its School of Frying Excellence.
The new equipment was unveiled for customers and suppliers at a ceremony attended by celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli.
Sales manager Tanya Henderson said: “We are delighted the launch went so successfully.
“This will enhance our training school.
“It enables us show a range of healthy cooking options to students.
“We can also demontrate the use of some under-rated fish.
“Fish and chip shops are not just about cod and haddock.”
The School of Frying Excellence was created to raise cooking standards within the industry.
It caters for about 100 people every year. Its students come from across the globe.
Tanya said: “We teach people from all over the UK but have also had people from Australia and the US.”
Family-run KFE has been in operation for 20 years and supplies quality frying ranges to fish and chip shops across the country.
It employs 25 staff but its trainers are all winners of the National Fish and Chip Shop of the Year awards.
