Acquisition of equipment and machinery to modernise a public kitchen

Using RDP support to acquire new equipment and machinery for the public kitchen of a small town.
 

Project summary: 

The town of Szügy has 1 500 inhabitants and is located eight kilometres from the Slovak border in Northern Hungary. The municipality runs a public kitchen which serves visitors and the municipality staff. It can also be rented for private events. As it was no longer economical to keep repairing old machinery and equipment, the purchase of new tools and machines became essential.

Support from the Hungarian Rural Development Programme allowed the kitchen to acquire new equipment and cooking machinery, including a combi oven, cooking kettle, dishwasher, kneading machine, microwave, vegetable slicer and a knife steriliser. 
 

Project results: 

The new equipment has made the operation of the kitchen much more effective and cost effective.
The municipality has, wherever possible, sourced raw materials from local producers. 
Several short supply chain options are being evaluated in order to give the kitchen the produce it needs.
