Gastronomy Plus Ltd – the owner of Sous Vide Tools – has acquired the Bertha charcoal ovens brand.
The company said it will continue to manufacture the appliances in the north-west of England following the takeover.
The Bertha oven, which can be fuelled by either wood or charcoal, has been manufactured in the UK since 2008 and is used by restaurant and hotel kitchens around the world.
Alex Shannon, managing director of Gastronomy Plus, said: “As well as bringing fantastic flavours to whatever it cooks, the Bertha oven is the ultimate finishing technique for food that has been cooked sous vide, making it the perfect addition to our range of vacuum packing machines, water baths and blast chillers.
“Like the other products in our range the Bertha oven is a very specialised piece of equipment and so we have added a new member to the sales team specifically to work with dealers, consultants and end users to ensure that they know everything there is to know about this very particular method of cooking.”
Mr Shannon said the company is already working on plans to extend the range in 2022.
