Harmony Helps Local Schools Meet New Food Technology Targets

18th Jun 2008

 

“From 2011, every 11 to 14-year-old will be given, hands-on cooking lessons in how to make cheap, healthy dishes from simple, fresh ingredients. Cooking has never been compulsory in secondary schools before.
Over 85 per cent of schools already have the facilities in place and offer food technology classes - lessons will be compulsory and will cover basic cooking skills for all pupils in these schools from this September and in every school from 2011.”

 

Harmony as well as offering commercial catering equipment is also helping schools upgrade to meet the new legislation. We have recently helped a number of local schools by installing new catering equipment, offering maintenance programmes and ensuring existing equipment is fit for purpose. In one case study we were able to help one school with new equipment in a mix of ceramic and gas units. This equipment was supplied from new including servicing for as little as £3 per unit per week.

Harmony can help with deciding upon the design and choice of equipment. Food Technology in schools is very important and Harmony is helping to relieve the strain on teachers by aiding with decisions on equipment. Ensuring as well as the technical aspect of the machines is up to date, that the health and safety of the children is paramount.
