The Catering Insight Supplier of the Year Training & Education accolade, sponsored by CESA, recognised the manufacturer who has invested extensively in education programmes for the benefit of the industry over the past 12 months.
And distributors decided that this year it was Rational.
The roll-out of more compact models from its product range, coupled with the launch of Connected Cooking 2.0, which places Rational at the forefront of kitchen digitisation, has provided distributors with significant new growth opportunities this year.
The manufacturer has also doubled the size of its UK headquarters, creating two fully-equipped demonstration kitchens, conferencing rooms and, most importantly, a dedicated technical training centre for engineers. This facility will allow more product training and service classes to be delivered to UK partners.
