Self-contained modular catering servery and organic waste digester available to NHS trusts
NHS Shared Business Services has added two PKL products to its procurement framework.
PKL was listed on the NHS SBS framework in February for its modular kitchen solutions, making it quick and easy for public-service providers to purchase and hire them.
This month two new products have been added to the framework: the Space Station and Garbage Guzzler.
The Space Station is an innovative self-contained modular servery that allows any catering operation to set up a café facility almost anywhere.
Its compact, mobile design enables it to be easily moved between different locations to take advantage of higher footfall, and it can be set up and packed away in a matter of minutes.
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 is an easy-to-implement ‘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.
PKL managing director, Lee Vines, said: “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.”
