The CSI container-based kitchen concept offers an optimized solution in terms of mobility, hook-up, functionality and service. Our modular kitchens are tailor-made for rapid and flexible expansion or relocation. All interior walls, ceilings and floors are clad in stainless steel to ensure compliance with the strictest hygiene requirements under field conditions. The floors also feature grated drains for easy cleaning.
Our kitchen solutions can be adapted to most military requirements, as well as the needs of civilian users, such as aid organizations and construction firms.
The standard kitchen consists of 4 container modules, with the capacity to produce meals for up to 500 people. This kitchen can be expanded quickly and flexibly with the addition of 2 more containers, increasing capacity to 1,000 meals.
The kitchens come in different sizes, i.e. 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10-container solutions, with the largest of these capable of feeding up to 3,000 people. The set-up time for a 4-container kitchen is roughly 10 hours for two people. After use, the containers can easily be disassembled and transported for deployment elsewhere, or they can be stored until needed again.
Hygiene / Safety
Peacekeeping forces are constantly being deployed to remote and challenging locations. The threat posed by contagious diseases spread by parasites, microorganisms and viruses has dramatically worsened in recent years. We have addressed these challenges by installing air-optimized systems and UVC microbicidal protection in our container-based kitchens. All kitchen equipment and fittings have been selected to provide maximum access for cleaning, and all statutory and regulatory requirements have been met and fully documented.
