Jason Atherton recognises the best innovation at Hotelympia

Jason Atherton revealed the final results of the innovation awards on Monday after the ideas had been pitched to a ‘dragon's den' style industry panel.

Winners included a self-stabilising table, an edible ‘taste bomb', an atomising grill and a portable draught beer dispenser.

Handing out commemorative plates to the winners, Jason Atherton said: "Innovation is the key to success. New ideas and products take forward-thinking people, and we've seen a great standard."

Food & Drink: Freshburst Pearls - Imaginative CuisineFreshburst Pearls can be used in drinks and food as an edible garnish, and release an intriguing taste sensation when bitten. They can be used with starters, main courses and desserts to add a visual colour, texture and taste dimension.

Technology: Portable Draft Beverage Dispenser - Draught Beer OnlineThe dispenser allows operators to connect the keg, plug in the dispenser and within six minutes pour the required product - Draught beer or wine - at 4°C.
