Kitchen manufacturer Omega Plc has backed the opening of a new training kitchen in Sunderland which is the “first kitchen to run chef Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food programmes on Wearside”, according to the company.

Omega Plc donated a 70sq m Sheraton kitchen to the Beacon of Light, which is a £20m education, sport and wellness centre that is “expected to welcome hundreds of families to learn about healthy eating as well as training many young people every year”, the company said.

“The Sheraton kitchen not only looks stunning but will improve lives, so we are immensely grateful to Omega PLC for supporting us,” said Foundation of Light skills head Linda Hughes. “Hundreds of families will learn how to cook healthy and affordable meals every year through the Jamie Oliver Ministry of Food programme.

“The courses help families and young people to understand more about cooking and nutrition through a range of fun and engaging learning experiences. The Omega kitchen will also be used as a training kitchen for young people to develop qualifications, skills and hands on experience to support positive progressions into the hospitality industry, which is currently experiencing considerable skills shortages.”
