Lincat to focus on school catering at the LACA Conference Exhibition
Lincat Ltd, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial catering equipment, will be talking to school caterers about the equipment it has developed specifically to meet their needs, at the Local Authority Caterers Association Conference from the 7th to the 9th July 2010 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. Stand No: P19.
This range comprises Lincat’s popular LMR 9 six burner range, together with single and twin general purpose ovens and a choice of gas or electric high capacity atmospheric steamers. Each item is designed to appeal to the school caterer who prefers to cook in a traditional way.
“Atmospheric steamers, powerful, general purpose ovens and six burner ranges are still popular in large kitchens, and especially so in education or healthcare settings”, said Nick McDonald, Marketing Director of Lincat Ltd. “The attraction is obvious for those who prefer to cook using tried and tested methods. Easy to use and reliable, they’re capable of large outputs and represent excellent value for money.”
“Atmospheric steamers are also popular because they’re able to deliver real health and cost saving benefits. Vegetables, rice, ham, fish and puddings all retain their nutritional value and colour when steamed, and reduced shrinkage results in cost savings on raw products.”
Lincat’s atmospheric steamers are strongly built and feature internal steam generation. This ensures that the ovens remain fully saturated with steam to guarantee high quality food production. Energy efficiency is enhanced by the positive two-point door latch mechanism and effective door seal. All components and materials are WRAS approved to ensure quality and hygiene.
As with all Lincat equipment, the popular LMR9 six burner range, LM09 single oven and LMD9 double oven offer outstanding performance and value for money. Of robust and sturdy stainless steel construction, they are easy to clean and designed to meet the needs of the busiest school kitchen.
The Lincat team will also be talking to LACA delegates about the clear and rising trend it has identified of school kitchens investing in state of the art combi steamers such as the Lincat Opus SelfCooking Centre. In particular they’ll be sharing the experiences of schools they have worked with who, having never offered freshly prepared meals on site, have found that they can, using a relatively small combi such as the Lincat 10-grid OSC101, produce high quality, healthy school meals with ease.
