Convotherm takes first place in Sustainable Catering Equipment Manufacturer Category at prestigious Footprint Award May 27, 2016

Guildford, UK. Leading combi steamer manufacturer, Convotherm, is delighted to have won the ‘’ at last night’s prestigious Footprint Awards with its latest Convotherm 4 model.

As one of the most renowned events within the hospitality and foodservice sector in UK, key figures within the industry gathered at the Footprint Awards to applaud the very best in sustainability across the sector.  Already recognised as a manufacturer who puts sustainability at the heart of their design, Convotherm further demonstrated to the judges how through extensive innovation, the latest Convotherm 4 combi steamers, are at the pinnacle  of efficient, sustainable catering equipment.

The judges commented that the Convotherm 4 was “an amazing combi steamer range which has achieved some excellent energy efficiencies in water and electric consumption compared to the previous model. More important is the excellent cooking results which obviously contribute to less food waste.”

The Convotherm 4 range of combi steamers feature a highly automated cooking process including the patented ACS+ technology which delivers even cooking results due to perfect steam saturation and control of air input and output directly to the cooking chamber. This results in a constant environment within the combi steamer for all products, ensuring that vegetables remain fresh and baked goods have a longer shelf life, thus allowing less chance for extensive food wastage. What’s more, the easyTouch model includes ‘ecoCooking’ which can save up to 25% energy over other models, and can improve product quality significantly.

Steve Hemsil, National Sales Manager Distribution at Manitowoc Foodservice UK was thrilled:  “We are absolutely delighted to have won the Footprint ‘Sustainable Catering Equipment Manufacturer Award’. Not only is it an excellent achievement for the team, but it further proves that Convotherm is leading the way within the combi steamer market in terms of sustainability. It highlights that by using the latest advancements in technology, and having a fantastic team of designers and engineers, catering equipment can be extremely energy efficient – this can only be good for the end user with reduced operating costs and food waste.  Convotherm 4 combi steamers also boast a 100% green manufacturing process.”
