Date: 8-10 March 2016
Location: Titanic Exhibition Centre, Belfast

Bunzl CDS took part in the IFEX 2016 exhibition, Northern Ireland’s biggest food, drink, retail and hospitality event.  Taking place at Titanic Exhibition Centre in Belfast, CDS showcased products from five key catering equipment supplier partners – Fagor, Rational, Sousvide, Gram and Winterhalter.

One of the key products at the CDS stand was the Rational White Efficiency SelfCooking Centre.  The new unit can grill, roast, bake, steam, stew, blanch and poach a range of foods including meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, egg dishes, baked goods or desserts.

Rational chef Kevin Hartley demonstrated the product’s capabilities to visitors at the CDS IFEX stand.  He cooked several dishes including steak, prawns, pizza and chips, demonstrating the key features of the Rational White Efficiency SelfCooking Centre:

  • iCooking Control – chefs enter the desired result, load and the oven prepares your food exactly how you want it.  If you open the door to check on the food, the oven will adjust the time and temperature for the loss of heat.
  • HiDensity Control – the patented high performance technology ensures uniformity and consistency in food quality and cooking performance.
  • iLevel Control – this feature shows you which foods you can cook together, saving you time, money, space and energy.
  • Efficient CareControl – this unique automatic cleaning system detects dirt and limescale removing them at the touch of a button, without burdening the environment or the wallet.

As well as products from Fagor, Winterhalter, Sousvide and Gram, supplier Eau de Vie was on hand to display their filtered water system.  Showcasing our furniture offering, we had chairs from our furniture partners Burgess Furniture, SCAB Design and Tabilo.
