Italian light cooking equipment manufacturer Spidocook has restructured its UK and Ireland distribution as part of its global strategy.
Effective 1 March 2021, Pro Foodservice Reps (PFR) has been appointed as the UK and RoI master importer for all Spidocook products, which were previously supplied via Unox UK.
PFR director, Andy Piggin commented: “Spidocook complements our existing product line and customer base, the product line is of high quality and well suited to the needs of the marketplace.
“Spidocook will continue to be channelled via foodservice equipment distributors with a 1 year parts and labour onsite warranty, with most of the range available on a next day basis from our midlands distribution centre.
“Spidocook are market leaders in ceramic glass contact grills, along with a complimentary product range of ceramic glass griddles, convection ovens and cook and hold oven. Pro Foodservice Reps anticipate a strong market reopening over the coming months and are well positioned to support our distributors and operators alike.”
Ceramic glass is a suitable cooking surface for sites requiring a fast speed of service whilst maintaining food quality, reaching temperatures of 400°C. Being thermal shock resistant, easy to clean and non-pourous, ceramic glass should meet the needs of the food on the go market.
Fast warm up and recovery times compared to market alternatives such as cast iron are also said to be benefits of Spidocook, with the brand’s market share in Italy being over 35% and its products used in over 60 countries globally.
