First ‘mobile kitchen’ in Cambodia enters service

A catering company recently rolled out Cambodia’s first “mobile kitchen” – a $50,000 container capable of serving up to 200 people at a time.

The kitchen is the brainchild of Seng Hok Heng Catering Services.

At 4.4m-high, 6.8m-long and 2.4m-wide (expandable to 6.8m), the kitchen is equipped with two gas stoves, four big stoves, four electric stoves, water storage tanks for kitchen use, pumps and ventilation, a drainage system, vegetable wash stations, refrigerators, steamers and fire prevention equipment.

Seng Hok Heng managing director Touch Ratha told The Post on Sunday that the mobile kitchen was launched on August 22.

He said the kitchen housed in a container not only provides convenience and mobility but allows for faster service with high hygiene standards.

“This modern mobile kitchen is an innovation to modernise and improve the working environment,” he said.

He said the mobile kitchen doesn’t require a construction site and does not result in debris and litter. “It does not negatively affect the environment around the venue,” he said.

Ratha said the mobile kitchen has also been rented by customers in the provinces.

Minister of Industry, Science, Technology and Innovation Cham Prasidh, who recently visited the Seng Hok Heng mobile kitchen, acknowledged that it was good and the first of its kind made and designed by Cambodians.

Ratha said Seng Hok Heng plans to add five more modern mobile kitchens to its number.
