Winterhalter launches National KP Day in support of Springboard UK

The KP of the Year competition organised by The Caterer in partnership with Winterhalter is now in its third year but this year Winterhalter has upped the ante.

"It's time to give KPs the recognition and respect they deserve," said Stephen Kinkead, managing director of Winterhalter UK. "A day in their honour is a way to highlight the fantastic work they do."

Chef Brian Turner, who fully supports the competition and recognition for the role, said: "I have been known to say, if a chef fights with a kitchen porter, one of them will have to go - and it probably won't be the kitchen porter."

Make a note in your diary and tweet for your KP and for charity on Monday 22 June using #kpday @kpoftheyear

For your KP to be in the running to win a prize that includes £1,000 cash, a celebratory meal for the KP and their friends and family in a casual dining restaurant of their choice, and one of Winterhalter's warewash products worth up to £8,000 for their place of work, visit before 9 August 2015 and enter their details.
