Meiko UK’s specification manager Mick Jary has been chosen as the new allied member for the EAME (Europe and Middle East) region of the FCSI.
Mr Jary joined Meiko two years ago specifically to increase Meiko’s support for foodservice consultants.
He has now been asked to represent the voice of the catering equipment manufacturers to the boards of FCSI EAME and FCSI Worldwide, a privilege which has the full backing of Meiko worldwide.
UK managing director, Paul Anderson, said: “Clearly Mick’s involvement with FCSI members in the UK has been met with keen interest. His energy and enthusiasm are notable, as is his strong desire to promote educational forums, field visits and technical presentations to share the specialist knowledge that we manufacturers have acquired over decades.
“The FCSI in many ways sets the standard for our industry when it comes to foodservice design. As we face an uncertain outlook environmentally, I am sure that the successful catering projects of the future will benefit from sharing our specialist knowledge and that can only help our planet by reducing consumption of water, energy and chemicals and by getting a genuine return from food waste in terms of cutting Co2 whilst offering the possibilities of enhanced energy returns.’’
Allied Member Representatives hold the post for two years and Mr Jary’s role will include participation at FCSI EAME and Worldwide board meetings and tradeshow participations at Gulfood and Host Milan.
“My election statement for this role, circulated to FCSI Consultant members and Allied Members, revolved around education, joint marketing exercises and the ease of information transfer in a constantly changing world,” he said.
“This will be central to my involvement as it will help promote the ethics the FCSI, raise the profile of the FCSI community and can only further business opportunities for all.”
