He commented: “I’m really looking forward to working with sales director Nic Banner as I’ve known him for nearly 40 years – we both met in our first catering role at the tender age of 16.

“I’ve always believed that chefs work far too hard in some very hot environments; using Induced Energy will not only reduce stress levels of the chefs, but also save the owner plenty of money on utility bills in the future.”

He added: “After the Brexit decision, it’s great news that owner Rosie Sanders has decided to grow the UK marketplace with our British-manufactured products.

“My role is to focus on the north of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland distributors as well as supporting all UK consultants. l will be glad to support both current or new distributor partners.”

Banner added: “The experience and professionalism that Ray brings to the team is invaluable and we’re delighted to have him on board.

“Ray understands the principles and key selling points of our product range and we look forward to him working closely with our distributor partners in the North.”
