At this year’s LACA Main Event, Frima will be explaining just how quick and easy it is to cook a variety of dishes with the latest hi-tech multifunctional cooking technology.  Frima’s VarioCooking Center can boil, fry, deep fry and confit, replacing griddles, kettles, bratt pans, large pots and fryers.  Alongside all its cooking processes it can also slow cook overnight and fast cook under pressure.  It takes the concept of multifunctionality to a new level, says the company – as visitors to the Show will be able to find out for themselves.

Shape-up school dining rooms

Moffat’s innovative Cube Clearing Trolleys clear up after school meal times

Moffat's Cube Clearing TrolleySchool meal times are not only important for fuelling children’s bodies, they are a valuable learning experience – teaching children about social responsibilities and encouraging them to take an active role in helping to clear away after their meal. This is of particular importance when the dining room is also the school hall and used for lessons, meetings or assemblies after lunch.

That’s why Moffat has launched a ‘quick clear’ Cube Clearing Trolley, part of the popular Versiclear range. This eye-catching mobile clear-away trolley is designed to double the useable area for school children to dispose of food waste and deposit trays and crockery and reduce clearing time. It conveniently folds into itself when not in use, so is compact and easy to store.
