The Delifresh creative zone was in full swing this week as the team from the Gainford Group held their chef's forum within our Cramlington depot at the beginning of the week.
The day consisted of a tour around the engine room which gathered huge excitement followed by a demo by Rational UK in the kitchen and then the team held their own forum as they created new menus and went through business as part of their monthly meeting.
By holding such an event offsite can often bring amazing results especially when you are surrounded by amazing produce and creative people.
If you want to do something similar with your team in either of our facilities just get in touch as we can most definitely host your event.
You just need to bring an open mind and some biscuits (only kidding we have plenty)
How creative could that be ???
