Okay, so ranges, fridges and dishwashers might not be sexy but have you ever thought where any foodservice operation would be without them?
Awards abound for chefs, restaurateurs and hoteliers but who applauds the clever boffins who make the kit that ensures operators can prepare, cook and serve food to their customers?
Well the Caterer and Hotelkeeper Equipment & Supplies Excellence Awards do and the 2010 awards have just been launched with the aim of recognising innovation and enterprise in the development of professional catering equipment and supplies which make such a vital contribution to successful food service operations.
There are 16 categories in total including ones for the best installation and best maintenance case studies. 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.
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.
