‘POP-UP’ CATERING CONCEPT wins prestigious Prime Cooking award
“This category was judged on efficiency, functionality, design and benefits to the end-user,” said The Caterer’s Products & Suppliers Editor, Lisa Jenkins.
“And in a world where the traditional kitchen now includes a varied range of equipment, prime cooking kit, needs to keep up with the customer, and the customer’s concept. For this reason, our winner this year was chosen for its flexibility and portability: the Catering Circle from Rieber.”
It combines a multipurpose steel container with cooking, hot or cold display, sink, beer font, self-ventilation and refrigeration.
Additional food holding, hot or cold, provided by Rieber Thermoport.
Says the magazine, “The winners and finalists encapsulate the creativity, responsibility, sustainability and originality in our industry.”
Says BGL Rieber MD Gareth Newton, “It is flattering to be recognised in front of the UK catering industry by a prestigious team of judges.
“Catering Circle was competing against the leading catering equipment manufacturers worldwide. It is a fitting winner because it demonstrates the commitment and dedication of Rieber to producing highly innovative, sustainable, ergonomic and practical cooking solutions that minimise labour and help caterers do their job better!
“A less visible but important element of Rieber’s design, which I am sure the judges noted, is that the use of standardised GN-sized components ensures top-efficiency for the equipment that works in tandem with Catering Circle, such as combi-ovens and dishwashers.”
