MKN and Adande have returned from Gulfood clutching trophies after coming up trumps in the Middle East exhibition’s award ceremony.
MKN’s FlexiChef landed the ‘best heavy equipment innovation’ award for its FlexiChef cooking unit, which impressed the judges with its capacity savings potential.
The brand was also commended for the appliance’s technical ability as well as the marketing concept that preceded its launch.
Adande, meanwhile, bagged the ‘best new catering equipment innovation’ title for its Compact Refrigeration.
“The Compact is designed to suit high turnover foodservice such as fast food chains, busy restaurants and event or stadia catering,” said Adande chairman Nigel Bell. “It has been developed with input from leading fast food chains and delivers substantial improvements over conventional refrigeration, including much tighter temperature stability.”
Elsewhere, Granuldis’ Granule Solo warewasher was named ‘best sustainable catering equipment innovation’, while Technical Supplies & Services’ Hot Mix Pro blender won the ‘best light equipment innovation’ award.
