Jestic Foodservice Equipment is proud to announce that two of the market-leading brands it represents in the UK, Irinox and Josper, have achieved success at this year’s Product Excellence Awards from The Caterer.
It was announced at a ceremony held on Thursday 3rd December at Dartmouth House, Mayfair that the Irinox MultiFresh 25.1 had claimed the top spot in the Refrigeration category, whilst the Josper Parrilla Grill excelled in the Frying & Grilling category.
The winners were chosen by industry experts, who had discussed and debated almost one hundred different equipment models in a five day judging session earlier in the year.
Utilising unique features including the MyA Panel – a touch control system which makes for extremely user-friendly operation – the Irinox MultiFresh 25.1 is versatile with operating cycles ranging from +85C to -40C, and is compact in footprint, making it the ideal refrigeration solution for a multitude of outlets. By contrast, the Parrilla Grill from solid fuel oven specialist Josper takes open grilling to a new level; drawing on traditions from Spanish cooking, the Parilla Grill is an indoor barbecue with a fully adjustable air vent and turbo fan for ultimate control and flexibility, which assists operators in creating dishes with unique flavours.
It is these features that have made the MultiFresh 25.1 and the Parrilla Grill winning products in the 2015 Product Excellence Awards.
Michael Eyre, Product Director at Jestic Foodservice Equipment, enthuses about the achievements: “As theatre cooking is at the heart of what we do, we are delighted to celebrate the success of the show-stopping Josper Parrilla Grill at this year’s The Caterer Product Excellence Awards. It is also fantastic to see heritage brand Irinox, who have been a part of the Jestic brand portfolio for over five years, be so highly commended by a panel of extremely knowledgeable industry professionals. Having worked with these models intensively over the past year in the Jestic Development Kitchen, I have had the privilege of hands-on experience with two items of cutting-edge equipment, which I believe are both truly deserving of these accolades.”
With excellence in product development at the core of the awards, food and drink products were recognised for their innovation, as well as energy saving credentials and sustainability. As such, the honours achieved by Irinox and Josper distinguish the MultiFresh 25.1 and the Parrilla Grill as the very best in their class.
As a result, this has enhanced the position of Jestic Foodservice Equipment as a distributor of the highest quality catering equipment available to the contemporary operator. Managing Director Steve Loughton comments: “Jestic Foodservice Equipment is thrilled to celebrate success at The Caterer Product Excellence Awards. With passion for our brands and their products, seeing them win awards of such importance is hugely rewarding for us, knowing that the service we provide operators is not only tailored to their needs but is in fact supported by industry commendation for absolute reassurance.”
In an increasingly competitive sector where a quality offering is paramount to success, this recognition is a tribute to the revolutionary equipment that Jestic Foodservice Equipment is proud to represent, of which sets the industry standard for excellence.
