FCSI UK & Ireland announces first ‘FCSI Education Day’

The event, for both FCSI members and non-members will be on 20 June 2017 at Senate House, University of London, UK

FCSI UK & Ireland has invited members and non-members alike to join an inaugural FCSI Education Day, to be held at Senate House, University of London, UK, on 20 June 2017.

Starting at 10.30am, the day will cover topics such as energy efficiency, waste reduction, technology, new regulations and sustainability and is set to be the first of many events under this banner for FCSI UK & Ireland members. The outline programme is:

10.30 – 11.00am   Reception and coffee
11.00 – 11.30am   Foster Refrigerator: ERP regulations for refrigerated cabinets
11.30 – 12.00am   bio-bean® discuss the process of recycling waste coffee grounds into advanced bio-fuels and bio-chemicals, saving money on waste disposal and displacing fossil fuels
12.00 – 12.30pm   Frima: Energy efficiency in modern kitchens
12.30 – 1.15pm     Lunch
1.15 – 1.45pm       Restaurant Associates reveal how Winnow helped them cut food waste and boost their kitchen profits
1.45 – 2.15pm       Green Cooling: efficient and environmentally focused refrigeration system design and specification
2.15 – 2.45pm       Brita Water: water quality within the catering and beverage sector and the effect water  has on end products and their equipment
2.45 – 3.30pm       The day ends with a short networking session with tea and cakes

Informative and educational

The chair of FCSI UK & Ireland, Julian Edwards FCSI, feels this will be a particularly interesting trip for members because the event “is the first of a series planned, aimed at giving our allied members the ability to present information on their sectors of the industry in an informative and educational way,” he says. “The day is open to all FCSI members, together with other industry association colleagues in a bid to share information and boost our collaboration. This won’t be a sales pitch.”

Attendees, says Edwards, will be learning about “a different side to the equipment and how it is used. For example with Brita, they will learn about how water quality effects the end product, and interspersed with these presentations, will be talks from up and coming companies with new and innovative ideas, all designed to get our members thinking in new ways when they are designing a kitchen.”

Edwards himself says he is most looking forward to “the chance to learn something new, network with members and non-members alike, and hopefully create some new discussions and perspectives.”
