Target Catering Equipment has been awarded the ‘Innovation in Business’ accolade at the Gloucestershire Business Show 2016.
The company is credited with working tirelessly over the past eight years to change business owners and chefs’ perceptions of commercial kitchens across the UK through the development of innovative catering equipment.
Recognising that business owners required cooler, more efficient kitchens to minimise overhead costs, improve working conditions and attract the best chefs to work in their commercial kitchens, Target began research and development into commercial induction cooking equipment which had previously been written off by larger manufacturers preferring gas for speed, controllability and cheap manufacturing costs.
With the government also striving to reach Kyoto 2020 energy reduction and reduced carbon footprint targets, commercial kitchens have been regarded as high energy consumers with massive energy waste and increased carbon emissions that are now under increased scrutiny by the Carbon Trust who have continued to implement new initiatives to reduce energy consumption, and waste and increase renewable energy supplies.
Through Target’s continued development and ability to custom manufacture equipment to suit individual requirements, induction cooking technology is now considered by many of its customers within the industry as one of the best forms of cooking technology.
