Victor Manufacturing has confirmed it will be making its debut at the National Association of Care Catering’s Annual Training and Development Forum later this month in a bid to show delegates how they can optimise their foodservice provision for care home residents.
The Bradford-based catering equipment maker will be demonstrating key products from its portfolio that it says are designed to help care home caterers enhance the mealtime experience for their residents and reap energy saving benefits.
These include the AMB30 model from Victor’s insulated, energy efficient, Ambassador Service Trolley range, which is widely used and specified by many of the UK’s leading care home groups.
Mobile, robust Ambassador trolleys are available in a variety of sizes and configurations and enable caterers to move multiple portions of hot and chilled food prepared in the kitchen to different locations around the care home, and set up satellite serving stations in convenient locations.
Delegates will also be able to see the BM30MSG general purpose bain marie hot cupboard with heated gantry and serving inserts. The product, which is available with a choice of customisable options, also supports caterers to move hot food around the care home and create several serving points.
The BL50H1 from Victor’s Banquetline hot hold banqueting range will also be on stand. The energy efficient mobile hot cupboard holds up to 60 standard 10” plates and gastronorm containers. They enable care home caterers to prepare and plate meals for residents in advance of service time, before transporting them to the dining area and then back to the wash up area.
“As well as showing delegates how they can use our products to improve their catering facilities, we’ll be demonstrating how our products can help care caterers to reduce energy usage, cut costs and improve their carbon footprint — which we know are key considerations for them at this time,” said Andrew Gibson sales director at Victor Manufacturing.
Victor says it will be providing case studies of counter installations in care assisted living centres during the conference, while its care sector experts will be available to offer information and guidance for delegates.
“We have a proven track record in the care home catering sector and we are looking to increase brand awareness and create new connections through this event,” said Gibson.
The National Association of Care Catering’s Annual Training and Development Forum takes place on September 30 to October 3 at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.
