Adande’s Aircell open front, integral refrigerated grab and go cabinet has won first place in the energy efficiency category at the 2018 Footprint Awards 2018.
The product was also awarded second place in the sustainable catering equipment manufacturer category. Adande was the only company to receive a first and second place at this year’s awards.
This accolade comes after the company’s Aircell Sarma cabinet won the packaging and equipment category at the British Sandwich Association’s Sammies Awards and follows the success of the grab and go product at the 2018 Food & Hotel Asia SCI Equipment Awards in Singapore and the 2017 FCSI UK & Ireland Sustainable Catering Equipment Awards.
The Footprint Awards recognise and honour the achievements of companies and their products in terms of energy efficiency, sustainability and responsible business practice in the out-of-home sector and its supply chain. This year’s award scheme attracted entries from the broad spectrum of the hospitality and foodservice sectors, which were judged by senior industry specialists.
Adande’s chairman, Nigel Bell, received the trophy at the Footprint Awards’ annual dinner held at the Royal Institute of British Architects, London, on 24 May.
He stated: “The receipt of the prestigious Footprint Award, following on from previous competition successes, further endorses the credentials of Aircell open front cabinet technology and highlights the tangible benefits for the display of chilled food to go in foodservice and convenience retailing operations. Aircell is a unique and disruptive technology, which saves energy, increases sales, maintains product quality and improves the shopping experience.”
