We take a look at the brightest new products and special events planned for this year’s Hotelympia show.
The Ferrero Foodservice log cabin will showcase three exciting new products: the Nutella 1kg Piping Bag, the Nutella 1.35kg tub, and Thorntons Luxury Chocolate Flakes. The piping bag comes ready to use, allowing caterers to be creative in the kitchen while saving time and reducing wastage.
The latest version of Precision’s compact under-counter refrigerator, the HPU150, is a practical storage solution for limited space. It has a footprint of just 600x640mm, a minimalist design and a flush handle, and is A-rated for energy efficiency.
Dualit has a new range of commercial products ideal for adding a touch of British heritage to any catering service, including the Dualit Classic Six-Slot Toaster, which produces up to 240 slices of toast an hour, and the Dualit Waffle Iron, made from top-grade, satin-finish stainless steel.
Nemco Easy Chopper 3
The Nemco Easy Chopper 3 from Metcalfe Catering Equipment is an all-in-one heavy hitter that chops, slices and wedges, and makes light work of cutting fresh herbs and cooked chicken and ham, all at high speed. New colour-coded blade assemblies and push blocks have been introduced, alongside existing features such as a 4.25inch cutting area for large vegetables.
Scandinavian warewashing manufacturer Wexiödisk has launched a WD-8 hood device. The system allows operators to adjust and reset water pressure easily, with rapid switching between normal and heavily soiled washes. The double-skinned hood is both heat- and sound-insulating, while a built-in dosing pump ensures the correct amount of detergent is always used. There are also adjustable temperature and rinse time settings.
Pan’Artisan’s Street Food Dough Ball Challenge
Pan’Artisan is the sponsor of the Street Food Dough Ball Challenge at Hotelympia’s International Salon Culinaire on 6 March at 1.05pm. Competitors will be required to create two portions of an innovative street food dish using the company’s pizza and sourdough balls, which will be served up as if delivered from a street food van or takeaway.
EcoPure Waters will be showing an addition to its range that allows restaurants, hotels and other foodservice operators to serve filtered drinking water in their own branded bottles. Its new 750ml bottles use tamper-evident caps to provide a securely sealed product that can be sold at the table or in-room.
