Essential Cuisine Donates £8,000 to National Adopt a School Week

Essential Cuisine has announced it will donate £8,000 to the Adopt a School Trust, the national charity of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, during its first ever awareness week.

The £8,000 donation from the producer of stocks, gravies, glace, jus, demi-glace and sweet sauce bases came from sales of its Premier Veal Jus During December 2016 with 25p per unit going to the charity.

Essential Cuisine has been involved with the Adopt a School programme for many years by welcoming local schools to its headquarters in Cheshire for interactive tasting sessions and asking development chefs to take action and adopt a school.

During the 2017 campaign week, Essential Cuisine will deliver a programme of cookery workshops and classes in schools throughout the UK.

Nigel Crane, managing director of Essential Cuisine said: "It has never been more critical for school children to develop a better understanding of food and nutrition. Engaging with them at a grass-roots level is not only vital in helping them understand the importance of their individual well-being but is also key to ensuring a steady stream of talent for the hospitality industry in the years to come.

"Adopt a School is a charity very close to our hearts and we're delighted to continue our support, donating both money and time to the cause. I call upon anyone interested in safeguarding the health of the next generation, and that of the hospitality industry, to stand up and be counted. Please get involved with the trust and do everything you can to support it this February."

Chief executive of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, Sara Jayne Stanes, added: "What a magnificent demonstration of support to emphasise the importance of teaching children about food and getting them interested in cooking from an early age. We are so grateful to Essential Cuisine and all those who have helped us to make a difference."
