Operators with a question or query about anything to do with their business can now get answers from the trade association that represents almost 100 of the UK’s leading kitchen houses.
The Catering Equipment Distributors Association (CEDA), which has members all over the country, has launched an online enquiry service called ‘Source@CEDA’ on its website, which is firmly aimed at operators in the foodservice market.
Adam Mason, CEDA director general, said the channel is a free information source for the industry to benefit from.
“Since its redevelopment 12 months ago, ceda.co.uk is attracting more and more operators seeking advice and practical solutions as they have the reassurance of knowing the professional quality of the CEDA membership, underpinned by the Code of Good Practice and Customer Charter. All enquiries that are received will be passed on to members to provide the solution so Source@CEDA pools together all the expertise and know-how of the national CEDA membership,” he said.
Mr Mason added that CEDA could provide “huge collective knowledge” from across its membership base, covering areas such as professional kitchen design, catering equipment specification, project management and after-sales service and maintenance.
“Source@CEDA provides foodservice operators with an efficient method of sourcing reputable suppliers and service providers, as well as free advice on operational and technical issues that fall within CEDA’s broad knowledge base,” he added.
To access Source@CEDA, operators need to visit CEDA’s homepage and fill out the contact form with their details and enquiry.
