NVQ Awards evening for Essential Cuisine

On 12th February 2014, we hosted a special awards evening to celebrate our factory team members on their fantastic achievements.

Despite the heavy weather and storms surging outside, we came together to recognise the achievements of our eleven factory team members on achieving their NVQ Level 2 Awards in Production and Warehouse Operations.

To present the awards, we welcomed some distinguished guests into Essential Cuisine, including The Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council, Councilor Jill Houlbrook; The Lady Mayoress, Mrs Walker; Leader of the Council, Councilor Mike Jones and our Local Ward Councilor Lynda Jones.

The qualification is an industry recognised standard that has required 6 months of toil and effort, much of which was done outside normal working hours, and was facilitated by Lean Training Solutions.

So on behalf of everyone at Essential Cuisine, our congratulations and praise goes to:

Andy Lomas, Ashley Hirst, Ben Critchley, Carl O’Hare, Kevin Gorst, Graham Hollis, Paul Riley, Dave Burgess, Sid Kelsall, Dave Howard, and Wayne Buckley.

Well done team, and thank you for all your hard work.
