Warewashing brand Winterhalter has announced it is searching for the Kitchen Porter of the Year, which aims to celebrate the vital contribution that KPs make in professional kitchens across the UK.

Nominating a KP for the award is easier than ever, with a short questionnaire that can be found via Along with the kudos of being KP of the Year, the winner gets an eye catching trophy, £1,000 cash and a dinner for family and friends at a restaurant in their area.

Stephen Kinkead, managing director of Winterhalter, said: “Foodservice is bouncing back from the pandemic, so it’s high time to turn the spotlight on KPs again, and the brilliant work they do. On top of an already tough job, over the past two years kitchen porters have had to show both determination and the flexibility to adapt to major changes in working practices.”

Every single KP that’s nominated will get an exclusive KP of the Year apron in a presentation tin. In addition, the winner’s kitchen gets a brand new Winterhalter warewasher. Plus, two runners up receive cash prizes.

Closing date for entries is 29th July. The awards will be judged by a panel of top foodservice industry names. To nominate a KP, visit here.
