The Supplier of the Year for New Product Development – Kitchen Efficiency is Adande.
Karl Hodgson, global sales director at Adande, said: “We’re delighted to win this award. It really does go to our engineering team because they have been fantastic and have had to work under extreme pressures.”
This accolade recognises the innovative solutions created and marketed by catering equipment brands to support the foodservice industry.
It gives credit to the manufacturer or brand that has enriched the market by introducing new equipment that delivers tangible benefits in terms of kitchen efficiency, ergonomics or design.
Adande’s VCS2/S2 saladette was created following extensive consultation with foodservice and QSR customers. It incorporates Adande’s patented side-engine VCS2 two drawer fridge and an integrated refrigerated saladette unit, which accommodates 100 mm deep GN pans.
The development has been driven by environmental responsibility, ergonomics, production efficiency, hygiene and aesthetics.
In terms of functionality and ergonomics, the server has been designed with a front-facing profile, angled towards the operator, for simple and fast access where speed of service is critical.
The two drawer fridge features Adande’s proven insulated horizontal ‘hold the cold’ technology, which has official energy ratings of ‘A’ in fridge mode and ‘B’ in freezer mode. The unit uses a natural hydrocarbon refrigerant, R600a, which has minimal Global Warming Potential (GWP).
