We worked with PKL because we need the best quality equipment for our chefs. We can’t risk using poor kit at events like this, and we know PKL will deliver. They have helped with the design and provided the best quality kitchen, perfect for the marquee we are in and the aims we have for the weekend.

Seafood Scotland is charged with promoting Scotland’s produce from around its shores to the world. Part of the organisation’s strategy is opening pop-up restaurants at targeted events.

In 2018, PKL supported Seafood Scotland and Clark Communications at an event based in Shoreditch’s BoxPark. The weekend event introduced Scottish seafood to hundreds of new converts, helped by the professional setup provided by PKL.

In 2019, Seafood Scotland and Clark Communications were again working together on an event, the Cambridge Foodie festival which provided the perfect audience to be wowed by some of the world’s best seafood.

The team called PKL and worked with the company’s designers to create the perfect temporary kitchen, sitting within a marquee, that would allow them maximum flexibility. This was key as Seafood Scotland were welcoming a different chef on each day of the festival, who would bring their own menu, showing off the range of foods and dishes that could be produced with Scottish seafood.

The kitchen was designed, delivered, installed and supported by PKL, giving Seafood Scotland the equipment platform they needed to wow the crowds with their top-quality product.

Clare MacDougall, Seafood Scotland Trade Marketing Manager, said: “We worked with PKL because we need the best quality equipment for our chefs. We can’t risk using poor kit at events like this, and we know PKL will deliver.
