Winterhalter prepare to celebrate Kitchen Porter Day

Warewash specialist Winterhalter is gearing up to celebrate Kitchen Porter Day on Friday 22 June – honouring the heroes of the kitchen.

KP Day is an opportunity to photograph and promote your KP’s. A chance for your kitchen crew to have a bit of fun and raise cash for Springboard, the charity that helps young and disadvantaged people gain employment in the hospitality industry.

If you have an outstanding kitchen porter in your kitchen, or one with a sense of humour – take a picture of them and tweet it with the hashtag #kpday. For every tweet, Winterhalter will donate £1 to Springboard, up to a maximum of £1,000.

There is also a special extra prize for the kitchen team that goes the extra mile to celebrate their KP.

All the images will be uploaded onto the KP gallery, celebrating all the great kitchen porters at

Stephen Kinkead, managing director of Winterhalter, said: “We’ve had some cracking photos on National KP Day over the years and we’ve also raised a lot of cash for this very worthwhile cause – so get snapping!”

KP Day falls during the entry period to find the 2018 KP of the Year – to enter your KP visit The deadline is 3 August 2018.
