Gloucester-based dealer and fabricator, Target Catering Equipment, has won the Gloucestershire Business Show 2016 award for ‘Innovation in Business’.

The company has worked tirelessly over the past 8 years to change business owners and chefs’ perceptions of commercial kitchens across the UK, thorough the development of innovative catering equipment.

Recognising that cooler more efficient kitchens were needed by business owners, in order to minimise overhead costs, improve working conditions and attract the best chefs to work in their commercial kitchens, Target began research and development into commercial induction cooking equipment which had previously been written off by larger manufacturers, preferring gas for speed, controllability and cheap manufacturing costs.

Target believes that through its continued development and ability to custom manufacture equipment to suit individual requirements, induction cooking technology is now considered by many within the industry as one of the best forms of cooking technology.

Gloucestershire is becoming a hub for green energy innovation design and development with many other specialist businesses located to the area.

Target Catering Equipment continues to develop new ideas and technologies within the foodservice industry, combined with other leading European manufacturers of equipment.
