Entries are invited for the Caterer and Hotelkeeper Equipment & Supplies Excellence Awards 2010.
Any operator providing a catering service needs to have all the right tools for the job and to this end they rely on equipment manufacturers to provide kit that is not only fit for purpose, but which also supports them in their quest to push the boundaries in food service.
The awards recognise innovation and enterprise in the development of professional catering equipment and supplies which make such a vital contribution to successful food service operations.
Last year's winners included the Convotherm Mini Mobile combi oven from Enodis UK and the Clifton Food Range water baths by Nickel-Electro. The Best Installation Case Study award went to Vision Commercial Kitchens for its project at Cameron House Hotel, Loch Lomond.
There are 16 categories in total: Ancillary equipment (for example, insect control, water treatment); Beverage making and dispense; Combi ovens, steamers, microwaves; Crockery, cutlery and glassware; Disposables; Food display and bar installations; Food preparation, cookware and kitchen gadgets; Fryers; Green award (offering energy efficient/eco-friendly benefits); Grills, griddles, barbecues and toasters; Hygiene and waste management; Ranges and ovens; Refrigeration (including blast chillers and freezers); Warewashing; Best installation case study; Best maintenance case study
The closing date for entries is 30 October 2009 after which our panel of judges will assess each one for innovation and significant advances in design.
