Hobart has responded to its recent win of the Sustainable Catering Equipment Award from the FCSI (Foodservice Consultants Society International).
The accolade was awarded at this year’s CESA Conference, held at the Renaissance London Heathrow Hotel, with the trophy collected by David Riley MD of Hobart Equipment Division to recognise the sustainability of Hobart’s new Two-Level Washer.
Tim Bender, sales director, Hobart UK, said: “This award is recognition of Hobart’s position as a frontrunner in sustainable catering. We’ve invested 4 years of research and development into the Two-Level Washer and receiving this award from the FCSI is a wonderful reminder that all our hard work is paying off.”
The machine is aimed at making strides in time, energy, water and space saving whilst doubling the capacity and productivity of a conventional hood-type.
Water consumption is monitored constantly via Hobart’s senso-active resource management function. For low amounts of soil, water consumption should remain low; when it detects increased levels of soil, it increases water levels, helping to reduce operating costs by an estimated 20% when compared to a conventional machine.
The machine’s genius-x² fine filter system cleans soiled water in three steps, which is said to reduce detergent consumption by up to 35%. Coarse soil and food waste are collected in the strainer basket, preventing them from reaching the tank.
