MKN to provide cooking equipment for IKA Culinary Olympics

Written by: Edward Waddell
Manufacturer of cooking technology MKN will once again be the exclusive partner for the IKA Culinary Olympics, which will be held from 2-7th February 2024, parallel to the Intergastra trade fair in Stuttgart.

The German manufacturer will be equipping the 16 competition kitchens with premium cooking appliances, including the FlexiCombi and SpaceCombi combi steamers and the FlexiChef multifunctional appliance.

Suited appliances from the MKN Modular series will also be used by the competitors live on stage at the competition, which brings together the ‘most talented culinary artists’ from all over the world, every four years.

The last IKA Culinary Olympics in 2020 saw around 1,800 participants from 67 nations produce a series of menus using MKN appliances, with Norway taking home the gold medal for National Culinary Teams.

Wayne Bennett, vice president of sales and marketing UK and Ireland for MKN, said: “We’re firm believers in supporting culinary talent and we have a long association with many competitions, from the LACA National School Chef of the Year here in the UK right up to the IKA Culinary Olympics. We’re extremely proud to be supporting this prestigious competition once again and looking forward to seeing what the teams produce using our appliances.”
