Four leading foodservice equipment brands face the public vote as they bid to impress visitors attending this week’s Casual Dining Show.
Convotherm, Gram, TM Electronics and Winterhalter are all bidding to make the final of the ‘Innovation Challenge’, which recognises the top products and solutions in the industry.
Voting opens from 10am on Wednesday, when the show kicks off and will run until 4pm. Entrants securing the most votes will then be invited to ‘pitch’ their new innovations to a panel of industry judges in the Keynote Theatre on the second day of the show.
This year’s judges include leading pub and restaurant entrepreneur Peter Borg-Neal, chief executive at Oakman Inns & Restaurants; Brian Whiting, owner of award winning pub group Whiting & Hammond; and Keith Bird, commercial director at Gourmet Burger Kitchen.
Gram is shortlisted for its Superiorplus 72 refrigeration range, Manitowoc for its Convotherm 4 combi oven line, TM Electronics for its MM7100 ThermoBar Scan thermometer and Winterhalter for its PT ClimatePlus warewasher (pictured).
