The Catering Insight Supplier of the Year – Heavy Equipment Award, sponsored by Commercial Kitchen, rewards those suppliers and manufacturers who have created the most innovative heavy duty appliance for sale through the distributor channel over the past year.
Falcon Foodservice Equipment triumphed in this category with 35% of votes.
The manufacturer has taken the cooking equipment world by storm by launching the first range of hydrogen-powered appliances.
Falcon worked for several years on the project, linking with Enertek International, the research and engineering consultants and hydrogen specialists. The line-up includes a new variant of the Dominator six burner G3101 range as well as chargrills, griddles, grills and fryers.
The range of products is designed for on and off-grid use to support the UK government’s efforts to scale up low carbon hydrogen supply.
Falcon’s sales and marketing director Lawrence Hughes was among those collecting the trophy onstage and said: “What a year to win it, absolutely superb. Thank you to all of the dealers who voted for us. It’s been an impossible year but we’ve cracked it and we’ve won an award so I’m delighted.”
