Innovation and trend-setting celebrated at Catering Equipment Expo 2018

Posted on Monday 01 October 2018

It’s finally here! We are live at The Restaurant Show and excited for an action-packed three days in the Catering Equipment Expo. Every year at the show, visitors hear about new trends, inspiring culinary stories, the latest cooking methods and the latest products, which is why at Lockhart we strive to ensure we are showing innovation through everything we offer and do. Customers’ needs change and so that means as chefs and caterers, you sometimes need to change the ways you are working to meet these demands.

Register FREE For The Catering Equipment Expo 2018

One of the ways we celebrate innovation is through our product awards which we are proud to reveal as part of this year’s Catering Equipment Expo. To mark these products we have presented gold, silver and bronze awards for the catering items and suppliers that we feel deserve recognition for being trendsetters. These have been broken down into the products most suitable for starters, mains, buffet, desserts and drinks.

Congratulations to all our award winners

New products and special offers

We are looking forward to seeing you all at The Restaurant Show over the next few days. To help you plan your visit we wanted to share with you some of the new products you will be able to see, as well as some offers you will benefit from by paying a visit to the Catering Equipment Expo area.

1. Arcoroc

If you are coming to the show to find the latest glassware for your bar or restaurant, Arcoroc will be presenting the Chef & Sommelier collection of Cicerone glassware, complete with Krysta Extra Strong Crystal Glass. With the show also having its own dedicated bar and pub zone and with the increase in demands for craft beer, you may also want to discover the fantastic range of high-quality beer tasting and serving glasses that meet the technical requirements for today’s modern beer drinkers. Arcoroc will also be offering 1/3 off the Rendez Vous, Macassar and Iroko ranges.

2. Dalebrook

Don’t leave the show without a visit to see the new launches and range extensions from Dalebrook. Here are three we recommend you check out during your visit.

• Portobello

Portobello melamine dinnerware is perfect for casual inside/outside dining environments, use pieces individually or pair bowls and plates together to make practical, stable stacking Bento Boxes.

• Casablanca

Dalebrook’s popular and much-loved Casablanca Collection has grown and is now available in new sizes and two new colours; a beautiful rich red and a rustic cool grey. The vibrant and stylish design of the Casablanca Collection means it can take centre stage at any meal, catering event or function and its range of colours allows caterers to create stunning food displays.

• Oxford

One of Dalebrook’s many exciting latest products, Oxford's unique mixture of black and white melamine gives these new platters the charm of granite with the 100% food-safe benefits of melamine. With sculpted feet and a dipped surface, they make ideal sharing boards or catering platters.

3. Revol

To celebrate the Catering Equipment Expo, Revol is currently offering 10% off its Belle Cuisine, Equinoxe and French Classics ranges if you order before the 31st October. The code you need to remember when ordering is Revol10.
