In support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative against childhood obesity, commercial foodservice equipment and supplies marketer Central Restaurant Products is launching its first School Nutrition Equipment Guide catalog.

The title, which will be unveiled March 29, sells products to help improve workflow, promote food safety techniques and encourage healthy food preparation methods in public and private K-12 school districts, colleges and universities. The more than 3,000 products available include steamers, combination ovens and food trays.

What’s more, Central Restaurant Products is adding an area for school foodservice and nutrition information on its Website. The company also offers free expert solutions for any school foodservice application, such as facility workflow advice, help with state/federal grant applications and customized product recommendations.

Founded in 1981, Indianapolis, IN-based Central Restaurant Products was acquired by K+K America in April 2009. K+K America, #51 on the 2009 MCM 100, is the U.S. holding company for TAKKT AG, a business-to-business direct marketing conglomerate based in Germany.
