Catering Insight is unveiling a ‘Dealer’s Choice’ initiative to find the catering equipment industry’s favourite product launches over the past 12 months.

As part of a special print issue in March, we will reveal the Lockdown Launches that the UK distribution network is most impressed by and what they believe stands out as being best-in-class.

Since the start of the global pandemic, suppliers and manufacturers have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to innovate, rejuvenate and diversify their product portfolios and, despite nationwide lockdowns, R&D departments have continued to develop their pipeline of novel technology undaunted.

This has resulted in an unprecedented level of new, state-of-the-art equipment being brought to market to help increase efficiency, hygiene and profit margins for operator businesses.

To recognise these efforts, Catering Insight will discover which products the dealers that specify, distribute and install an estimated 90% of UK kitchens are really excited about.

The most exciting launches independently selected by dealers will feature in an unmissable March edition that will also serve as a guide to the most compelling new equipment that distributors and their customers need to know about.

So if you’ve launched (or are launching) a product between March 2020 – March 2021, you can nominate it for FREE, where it will be put to an industry-wide panel of dealer professionals to crown just ONE bit of kit in each category the real ‘Dealer’s Choice’.

To nominate your product, simply send the following information to by close of business on Tuesday 9 February.

–             Product name
–             Date of launch
–             250-word product description
–             THREE bullet points of key features explaining why this product is the best in its category
–             A high-resolution image of the product
–             A high-resolution company logo

Due to time constraints, entries submitted after the deadline (Tuesday 9 February) cannot be accepted or considered.

This must-read special edition brings you an opportunity for unparalleled exposure so that, no matter what, you can guarantee your product is visible. To explore the opportunities in this edition, please contact Mark Harris on 07860 618 048 or email
