SEREbox.com, the original monthly subscription box with an emergency preparedness theme, celebrates its successful 1st year anniversary on February 20th, 2015

Atlanta, GA, February 02, 2015 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — SEREbox.com was the first monthly subscription box service geared towards emergency preparedness and survival gear planning available on the internet or elsewhere. SEREbox.com combines a comprehensive and innovative line of emergency planning products with an educational aspect that cannot be found anywhere else. Each month has a theme (ie: Fire, Water, Food, Protection, and etc.). They strive to find unique items that are quality made in the USA, highly functional, and extremely durable. Food is always the most popular and important item to have in a cache of emergency supplies. Therefore, special attention was paid to make sure the entire long term shelf stable food line is the best in the business. They succeeded. Their food line is unmatched because it is great tasting, fast cooking, low in sodium, and highly nutritious. Even gluten free and other specialty diet options are available to all customers.

The website has proven to be of tremendous value to families and individuals on their search for independence and freedom from reliance on other people or the government in case of any emergency or survival scenario. “This is a cutting edge Internet site far superior to anything in the marketplace,” said Ryan Bowersox, Co-Founder of SEREbox.com. “We have received a humbling amount of compliments on the concept and product itself. We expect tremendous sales growth in year two through our newly designed, convenient, and user-friendly website.”

“The response from all our customers has been overwhelmingly positive. Companies talk all the time about customer service and it seems to be just lip service. Customer service is a lost art. We really strive to make each customer happy. We have never put turning a profit ahead of doing the right thing for our customers. We have countless testimonials on our website about how we are succeeding in all our goals. We are just so pleased that our little idea has been of such use to people, and it’s so exciting. We can’t wait to see what year two and beyond brings.” said Scott Setter, President.

SEREbox.com has grown by leaps and bounds because of the great value it offers its customers. The company has a very intelligent and hardworking team of people in the greater Atlanta area. The concept and website have been featured in many publications, most notably the Winter 2014 version of “Survivor’s Edge” Magazine. The company’s website at www.SEREbox.com contains additional information on the program and how to sign up.

http://www.realworldsurvivor.com/2014/12/03/serebox-sends-monthly-survival-kits-home/#3-sample-boxes

In the Spring of 2015, SEREbox.com will launch its new product called “The Mini.” It is designed for all those subscribers who cannot afford $39 per month and need a more economical option. It will have free shipping as well.

Hays PureWater Launches $10,000 Campaign To Save Lives

WASHINGTON, IA, November 25, 2014 — /EPR FOOD AND BEVERAGE NEWS/ — 783 million people live each day without clean water and 3.4 million die annually from a lack of pure water. To combat these staggering statistics, Washington-based nonprofit, Hays PureWater, launched a crowd-funding campaign. The money raised will fund 30 Khlor Glen technology units to purify water for 150,000 individuals. The organization hopes to raise $10,000 by December 1st.

Hosted on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo, the project offers nine sponsorship levels. Each level includes novelty “rewards” for donors, ranging from stickers to t-shirts to a trip to Haiti. The rewards are unique, innovative and hands on, giving donors a sense of ownership in the project. For just $2,500, an investor can travel to Haiti (all inclusive) to see the life changing benefits first hand.

The Khlor Glen is a simple unit that turns salt water into chlorine. The chlorine treats infected water, removing deadly impurities and toxins in just one hour. It’s solar powered and easily used in remote areas, where clean water is most needed. “It will also impact malaria zones as it can be used as a bug repellant and protect from disease,” says founder John Hays. “Even just using the chlorine produced by the unit as a sanitizer can cut down on so many infections that the natives in these areas don’t even know exist.”

In the last eight years, Hays PureWater distributed over 4,000 purifying units around the world, changing entire communities by implementing this system. It’s proven to work. Hays builds each system with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. Nothing is outsourced, ensuring the most effective product for the lowest cost. Now all they need is help from their community to change the lives of those in need once more.

See the crowd-funding campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hays-purewater-providing-clean-water-globally

ABOUT Hays PureWater
In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays began to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. John, who worked with municipal water works for over 30 years, put his experience to use and developed the Khlor Gen system. Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. The organization exists to provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.

First of Kind Sports Drink – Break Through for Athletes

“A beverage that was developed with “natural” ingredients accelerates an athlete’s recovery from workouts, practices and competitions”

 

Ridgefield, WA, October 28, 2014 — /EPR FOOD & BEVERAGE NEWS/ — 2MAC, created by an athlete 60 years young, uses natural ingredients to restore the energy and hydration generators depleted during high intensity competition or practice. The greatest chapter in this story may be that there are no chemicals required to achieve this result.

“We were tired of using sugary, salty, artificial tasting drinks as a recovery beverage after a workout. As athletes we wanted something that really did taste great, contained no artificial additives and restored the amino acids, antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals we burned while exercising. The drinks on the market were missing the big picture as they were too narrowly focused on remedies for one or two segments of this equation. It was very frustrating,” said development director, Mike McDaniel at 2MAC’s Vancouver, Washington headquarters.

The body does not restore these elements on its own, they must be consumed. The longer a person waits to recharge their body the longer their recovery time will be. Waiting to resupply lost nutrients reduces the benefits from a workout or extends the recovery time from an event. While consuming water or a high sugar and salt sports drink will cure a roaring thirst, that alone will not remedy the more important issue of depleted nutrients and body reserves. These elements must be replaced to rejuvenate muscles and energy.

“2MAC’s formulas, which are characterized by a great taste profile, are designed to be absorbed rapidly into an athlete’s system, reduce muscle inflammation and oxidative stress while minimizing insulin release. To effectively reverse the effects of physical stress, 2MAC should consumed during, or within 30 minutes of ending, the exercise period,” McDaniel stated.

Introducing 2MAC to a sports drink market that is defined by long entrenched brands is a challenging task. That is why 2MAC has decided to seek funding in two stages through the Kickstarter process which features an all or nothing model. Stage one is designed to verify taste demographics while a stage two Kickstarter campaign will be utilized to launch a nationwide rollout of the product. Be sure to follow us at the following Kickstarter link. Those who pledge will be among the first to experience the benefits of this natural solution to dehydration and nutrient loss.

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety

California Man Launches Kickstarter to Promote Kitchen Safety Invents Oven Mitt That Allows Dexterity and Promotes Safety

Santa Clarita, CA, September 17, 2014, Nearly 350,000 people annually are victims of scalding or burns from accidents that occur while cooking, either on the grill or in the kitchen. Most involve saucepans or tea kettles. Many could be eliminated by using a proper padding device on the hands when touching pans that have been heated. Many hot pads just aren’t made for high temperatures or kitchen dexterity when cooking. This can create more safety issues and actually create harm where they were supposed to bring assurance. One California man, Marcelo Garcia, has created a different kind of oven mitt built for safety and dexterity and has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring this kitchen must have to the cooking masses that work well for anyone working in the kitchen, from beginner to Iron Chef.

Ulta-Mitt, as it is called, is a 3-Finger mitt constructed from neoprene that is waterproof and heat resistant making it great for indoor or outdoor use. The 3-Finger design allows for more dexterity than an ordinary oven mitt, offering both style and function with users able to have the ability to grab a lid from a hot pan, pick up a hot coffee cup from the microwave or work with small gadgets required while cooking in the kitchen. The neoprene material is also non-slip for a better grip.

This must have kitchen item also comes with a matching neoprene hot pad, which can double as a jar opener for those hard to open lids.

Perks for sponsors include sets of the gloves at manufacturer’s discounts and ahead of their proposed scheduled appearance in stores appearance and for some lucky investors, a complete Healthy eating wooden handle wok cooking set. For those that can’t give, the inventor hopes they will share this story to make the campaign viral through social media.

Nutrit Meal Replacement To Start Crowdsource Campaign

We are pleased to announce that Nutrit Meal Replacement is starting a Crowdtilt Campaign for its initial production run.

On the heals of the successful campaign for Soylent, Nutrit promises a meal replacement product that has been totally reimagined. Nutrit provides a complete days nutrition while helping a person avoid processed ingredients, soy, wheat, dairy, GMOs, and Dairy. Nutrit is made up of organic proteins and fats, flavored with organic cocoa. Nutrit costs less than fast food, is easier to make than instant noodles, and tastes similar to chocolate milk.

Meal replacement as an idea is a sound one. In a fast paced society, its hard to avoid problem ingredients and at the same time get the nutrition one requires to stay healthy. Its all too easy, in a pinch, to reach for something in a vending machine or fall back on take out food. To date, meal replacement products and protein concoctions offer an unmeasured nutrient value, and mostly contain ingredients that can cause inflammation. Nutrit has solved those problems by being an easy mix powder, that offers an organic, non-GMO ingredient list that mirrors RDA requirements.

Nutrits Crowdtilt campaign is primarily being undertaken to provide funds to meet our vendors initial minimum order quantities. The merits of this product stand on there own, and we feel it is important to get it out there. Nutrit can help the average person avoid problem ingredients, and control calorie intake, all while getting more complete nutrition than is afforded by a standard diet.

Find out more at our site; www.nutritmr.com and get involved at:https://www.crowdtilt.com/campaigns/nutrit.
Only with your help can we bring this truly novel product to market and the world.

LondonTown.com: Newly opened Shangri La Hotel offers tempting Afternoon Tea in the Ting Lounge

The much anticipated Shangri La Hotel, London has opened its doors but you don’t have to stay in one of their elegant hotel rooms to enjoy the breath-taking views. One of two restaurants in the hotel, Ting offers visitors a chance to enjoy afternoon tea in London with a 360-degree view of the city. Like the hotel’s rooms, Ting fuses Shangri-La’s Asian heritage with the iconic modernity of London’s Shard.

Situated on the 35 th floor of Western Europe’s tallest building, Ting derives its name from the Chinese word for living room and offers diners a modern, stylish setting in which to enjoy afternoon tea. Guests can choose between two menu options: Classic British or an Asian-inspired alternative. The Classic menu features delicacies such as Chocolate Temptation, a rich sponge with red fruit tea-infused chocolate ganache and raspberry compote served with soft chocolate cream; and the Passion Fruit, which combines passion fruit cream, tropical fruits with mango coulis and exotic fruit marshmallow. The sandwich selection is equally enticing, with London smoked salmon and cream cheese on whole meal bread and roasted chicken and grain mustard on mixed seed bread among the options. In contrast, the Asian menu reflects the hotel’s cultural traditions with treats like a Chinese-Style Egg Custard Tart, Steamed Prawn Dumpling and Roasted Duck Pancake. Of course, no afternoon tea is complete without scones and both menus include classic as well as chamomile options with traditional Cornish clotted cream and strawberry jam.

The Classic Afternoon Tea is £49 or £57 with a glass of champagne and the Asian Afternoon Tea is £54 or £62 with a glass of champagne. Visit LondonTown.com for more information on the Shangri La.

How Catering Equipment & Furniture Hire Beats Buying for Events

If you are planning an event of any kind, from a birthday party or a wedding to a large, international corporate event you need the tools to do the job right. This means you need a suitable venue and so much more. You need food, furniture and catering equipment.

But the big question is do you hire equipment or buy it outright?
With an unlimited budget and lots of future events in the books, you might be tempted to buy. But there are a number of ways that catering equipment and furniture hire can prove a more worthwhile alternative.

We’ve listed 8 of the best:

Reasons for Hiring Catering Equipment & Furniture

1. Affordable
If you only require catering or kitchen equipment for a short period, hire specialists like Allens Hire in London can offer an attractive price which stacks up favourably against the purchase price of the same things.

2. Storage
Buy catering equipment or furniture and you’ll be burdened with looking after it when it isn’t in use. With hire furniture, tableware and more, you don’t have to worry about these items until they are required to ensure your event is a success.

3. Transport
At Allens Hire, a fleet of drivers are ready and waiting to deliver catering equipment, such as tableware, tables, chairs and kitchen equipment , to your door; no matter where in London or the South of England your event is to be held. This is one of the major benefits of hiring for an event. We bring the equipment to you.

4. Maintenance
You might wish to purchase your own outdoor BBQ, garden heaters or chest freezers but when disaster strikes you could be sorry you didn’t simply hire them out. We maintain our inventory of gas and electrical products so there is a good range to choose from. We never distribute an item without first performing a series of checks.

5. Safety
When gas appliances are involved, health and safety should be a high priority. At Allens Hire we are gas certified and PAT trained to ensure that our equipment is safe to use when it leaves the premises and each appliance carries Safety and Operating instructions to ensure that you have the best advice whilst appliances are in your care.

6. Cleanup
Once your event draws to a close, and the fun is over, the hard work truly begins. At least that’s the case if you’ve used your own tableware and it’s your job to clean up. When you hire catering equipment from Allens Hire, we offer to do the cleaning for you, so you can return the equipment dirty for us to do the job for you and alleviate you of this task at least!

7. Trends
Fashion is constantly changing. But that doesn’t simply mean that clothing changes. The popular ways to decorate an event change too. When you buy furniture, tablecloths and more, their so-called ‘trendiness’ may diminish over time. But a hire company like Allens remains at the forefront of the event planning industry, providing insight into trends of the moment and has a carefully chosen portfolio to theme your event in your chosen colours. Every time you host a party, sporting or corporate event you will have access an excellent range of equipment for the job; and the looking good to boot.

8. Tailored
No two events are ever truly the same and so the best catering equipment and furniture projects are truly bespoke. That’s what you get when you hire catering equipment for each individual event. You can request exactly the things you need to cater a birthday party of less than 50 people or a corporate event for hundreds. Allens Hire advisors can work closely with every client to ensure that they receive a tailored project that is perfect for their needs.

Call Allens Hire on 0208 574 9600 (London) or 023 8065 2316 (South Coast) to talk about your catering equipment hire, event hire and furniture hire needs. Whether you are arranging an event in a park, a palace or a party at home we can provide everything that you might need to ensure that the event is enjoyed by all.

LondonTown.com: ‘Pleased to meet Q’ says Camden as London’s latest BBQ joint fires up grills

Set to open in late February, Q Grill is the latest example of London’s love affair with all things grilled, smoked and American. The craze for down-home barbecue style cuisine seems set to continue into 2014 and Q Grill looks like a very good reason not to put down the BBQ sauce just yet.

Q Grill arrives in Camden (Chalk Farm Road to be precise) courtesy of esteemed restaurateur Des McDonald (formerly of Caprice Holdings), hot on the heels of his successful Fish and Chips venture in Islington last year. He describes his foray into the well-populated BBQ dining scene as coupling the ‘sweet tasting BBQ flavours of a traditional Memphis smokehouse with our own unique approach’.

Heading up the kitchen will be Phil Eagle, a fellow alumnus of Le Caprice whose CV also boasts a spell as Head Chef at Hix. He will oversee a menu that won’t be short of finger lickin’ meaty offerings like Josper grilled steaks and burgers, pecan roasted chicken, kielbas a hot dogs and pulled pork sandwiches. This carnival for carnivores will be offset by ‘raw bar’ classics like scallop ceviche and citrus sea bass. Expect the drinks list to continue the down-home southern stylings with a wide selection of American bourbons and whiskeys.

Q Grill heads an exciting list of London restaurant openings over the next couple months as the capital’s dining scene kicks off 2014 in fine style. Keep abreast of all the latest foodie must visits at LondonTown.com where you’ll find comprehensive listings covering all the latest London restaurants, book tables and find nearby attractions.

The spokesperson continued ‘Such has been the overwhelming demand for our exclusive business offer that we now have agreements in place for in excess of 200 store openings across the GCC and Pakistan. We will be announcing details of our master licence agreements in the near future’.

All Doner Kebab stores have the support of the world’s largest Doner Kebab production operation “Kaplan Doner” based in Germany together with its unrivalled industry knowledge acquired through decades of experience. Since the launch of the brand in Berlin in 1989, Doner Kebab has been committed to perfecting its unique blend of traditional spices and innovative cooking processes that go into producing its healthy alternative Doner Kebabs.

Allens Catering Hire Asks ‘Is Quality Chair Hire on Your Christmas List?’

With Christmas party season fast approaching, a leading UK hire company is urging organisers to place high quality chairs on their Christmas list.

Allens Catering Equipment & Furniture Hire provides party chairs and much more to London and the South of England. Thanks to years of experience in the events industry, the company knows just how important it is to ensure that visitors are seated comfortably. With a matter of weeks remaining until the season of good will, it is important that event organisers nail down suitable chair hire; or they could find themselves relying on a Christmas miracle.

One of the most popular seating choices of the past few years is the Allens Hire range of Camelot chairs, in silver and white or festive gold. A wide range of other colours are also available.

Camelot chairs have enjoyed tremendous popularity in recent times; particularly after they were chosen to seat the Beckham wedding reception. Sometimes referred to as the Chivari or Chiavari chair, these attractive party chairs are a modern reinterpretation of a luxury chair which originated in Chiavari, Italy.

The chairs have seated some of the most prestigious venues in the world, including the Sydney Opera House and the National Portrait Gallery. They’re also a regular feature in celebrity magazines and lifestyle programmes. As such these glamorous chairs are the perfect choice for the biggest event in your annual social calendar.

In addition to a super strong yet lightweight build, these chairs are built with stackability and transport in mind. Steel bolts are used instead of screws for maximum safety and stability.

When customers place an order with Allens, their chairs are thoroughly inspected before delivery. Any necessary repainting or repairs are completed before hand. All customers need to do is choose the style of chairs which best suit their needs and place their order as soon as possible.

Kevin McGuinness, owner of Allens Catering Equipment & Furniture Hire, said: “Christmas parties are often the biggest event in a business’ social calendar. As such it is amongst the busiest periods in the hire industry.

“The best way to ensure that any event is suitably furnished is to place an order as soon as possible; especially when choosing the most popular ranges, such as our beautiful Camelot chairs. We currently have 11 lorries, a number of fully staffed premises and many furniture hire collections to choose from; so we’re well placed to meet seasonal requirements.

“If you have a particular chair on your Christmas list it pays to make a booking now”.

Thames Valley Catering Equipment Wowed By Royal Genware Tableware

Thames Valley Catering Equipment is very proud to be able to supply a full range of Royal Genware Tableware to the Catering Industry. For many years Thames Valley Catering Equipment has supplied virtually every piece of catering equipment that is of use to the Catering Industry and it is always looking to keep its full range of products as up to date as possible and therefore to reflect the needs of its customers. The catering business has always been extremely competitive and in the present time of financial cut backs and belt tightening this is even more important and it is necessary for the restaurants, cafes and catering establishments to have the best chance of competing successfully with its competitors. Food presentation has always been very important but these days even the small establishments are expected to achieve very high standards and to make this happen there not only needs to be excellent food quality but also it needs to be presented in the right way and on the right crockery.

Thames Valley Catering Equipment has recognised this need and is very pleased with the full range of Royal Genware Fine China Tableware which it is able to supply to the industry. This Royal Genware Fine China is their Classic design and is made to give the china a pure white appearance, which has been made with alumina in its mixture to give a low water absorption whilst giving the finished article a strength that can deal with the rigours of the catering industry. The hard work that crockery and china has to deal with in the catering trade is one of the reasons that Thames Valley Catering Equipment has chosen the Royal Genware range. There are some excellent plates to present the food on with the Classic design having a wide side rim whilst the Coupe design has a flat base with a curved edge. If none of these designs fit the bill there is the Genware square plate range. All of these designs work well in a restaurant or eating establishment and can be sourced in a range of sizes.

Thames Valley Catering Equipment is particularly pleased to promote the Royal Genware range of presentation plates and dishes, which certainly give the user a great advantage over many of their competitors. The range covers quite a number of different options with an oblong single, double or triple spaced dish, which allows a range of different presentation methods to be achieved. The whole business of getting the best out of the fine china has been examined and the results, which have been achieved are excellent. The Royal Genware Fine China Tableware also produces a range of dishes for sandwich and small meal presentation which is ideal for the lunchtime or teatime trade as well as the establishment that provides drinks and snacks in the evening.

“Thames Valley Catering Equipment is pleased to announce that the price range of this Genware range is excellent and will provide a great advantage to the establishment without breaking the bank.”

Legendary Spanish restaurant elBulli goes on display at London’s Somerset House

For many of us ‘elBulli: Ferran Adrià and The Art of Food’, a new exhibition opening at the Embankment Galleries of London’s Somerset House on Friday 5th July 2013, will be as close to eating at the famous Spanish restaurant, its 50-course tasting menus, and its distinctive brand of molecular gastronomy as we will get – especially since it closed its doors in 2011.

The retrospective at the Embankment Galleries, Somerset House, gives visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Adrià’s unique cuisine. Chefs who worked at the restaurant under Adrià’s leadership included Heston Blumenthal whose restaurant at London restaurant, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge ranks among the most prestigious London restaurants.

The multimedia exhibition at Somerset House offers an insight into the research behind each dish, revealed through handwritten notes and sketches. Also on display are plasticine models which were made for all the dishes – and the elBulli team invented 1,846 of them – used as a means of quality control for colour, portion size and position on the plate.

New ALL BUT GLUTEN™ Baked Goods Launches During Celiac Awareness Month for Canadians on a Gluten-Free Diet

May is Celiac Awareness Month and, just days after first appearing on the shelves of major Canadian retailers, new All But Gluten™ baked goods are receiving rave reviews from consumers following a gluten-free diet. These great tasting products were created by the talented product development team at Weston Bakeries in collaboration with respected nutrition experts and are manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free facility. They meet Health Canada’s gluten-free regulations and are certified by the Canadian Celiac Association’s Gluten-Free Certification Program (GFCP). All But Gluten™, is one of the first brands to bear the GFCP mark, making it easier for consumers to identify safe gluten-free products.

All But Gluten™ products are also dairy-free and Kosher.

Safety, taste and nutrition are the three pillars of the All But Gluten™ brand. “The breads, focaccias, pizza shells and muffins are enriched with vitamins and minerals and are a source of fibre,” says Shelley Case, registered dietitian, international celiac disease expert and consulting spokesperson for All But Gluten™. “This is an important feature of All But Gluten™ because many gluten-free products on the market are not enriched and often lower in iron, B vitamins and fibre,” states Case.

Unlike most gluten-free baked goods, All But Gluten™ can be found in the fresh bakery section, not the frozen section of major Canadian retailers. Consumers following a gluten-free diet really miss delicious baked products and now they can stroll down the aisles that were previously off limits. The All But Gluten ™ brand invites consumers to ‘Rekindle your love of baked goods.’

The line includes Whole Grain Loaf, Cinnamon Raisin Loaf, Sliced White Loaf, Roasted Onion Focaccia, Rosemary Focaccia, Plain Pizza Shells, Carrot Raisin Morning Muffins, Mini Brownies and Coconut Macaroons.

Laundry 365 Expand to Supply Warewasher’s Of A Fagor Design

Laundry 365 were set up to supply all sorts of commercial laundry equipment by a group of dedicated service people with years of experience in the trade with the added advantage that the service element was supplied 365 days a year. The company has been very successful in its approach and have realised that they have years of experience supplying not only the commercial laundry business but also the service industry as a whole, where that service industry supplies services to people in bulk. To this end Laundry 365 now supply commercial warewashers, which can clean bulk loads of crockery and glasses efficiently and with a high quality finish.

Laundry 365 is pleased to promote the Fagor range of warewashers and in particular the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher which is a pass-through warewasher meaning that the crockery or glasses are placed into a basket ready for washing. The baskets are then placed in the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher at bench height and are removed at bench height when finished. This means that there is no bending and lifting other than a straight transfer of the baskets and their loaded contents into the warewasher. This reduces any lifting problems that are caused by under counter warewashers and it also speeds up the process. Laundry 365 notes that the Fagor AD12BBT warewasher will efficiently clean some 1,200 dishes per hour ready for re-use. This reduces the amount of crockery and or glasses that are required for the commercial operation of the unit and returns those used back into operation in a very short time. This is ideal for bulk crockery or glass usage operations such as large restaurants, canteens, schools and hospitals and also cruise ship operations as well as large industrial type food processors.

The Fagor AD12BBT warewasher is a very simple piece of equipment to use being limited to just three working programmes, which are quite sufficient for virtually any normal operation. The typical working programmes take just 90 seconds or 180 seconds, which takes care of both the fast speed operation for the normal items and a slower more determined cycle which deals with the more difficult cleaning problems. The water temperature is typically 60 degrees C with a rinse cycle temperature of 90 degrees C, which will leave the dishes ready to dry quickly and efficiently. The wares cleaned are ready for putting away into the storage cupboards or can be returned straight into the system for instant reuse if that is required.

Laundry 365 is pleased to note that the unit is made of stainless steel and that all Fagor units come with a great reputation of strength and reliability from many years extensive usage in the industry. The Fagor AD12BBT warewasher has low running costs and is a real workhorse in the kitchen or factory and will delight the user. Laundry 365 will be delighted to advise anybody on the best piece of equipment for their own operation as this comes as part and parcel of the sale.

MITIE’s Catering Business Rebrands to Gather & Gather

MITIE, the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company, has announced the launch of a new brand for its catering business: Gather & Gather.

Based around a culture of bringing food and people together, the new identity will feature as the new trading name and customer facing identity for MITIE’s catering business.

Gather & Gather focuses on bringing together the best ideas, ingredients, recipes and inspiration from the food industry so that customers can gather together to enjoy them in the workplace.

Two years ago MITIE recruited a new management team to lead its catering business under an entrepreneurial investment model. Since then, the business has more than trebled its turnover through new contract wins and the acquisition of award winning hospitality company Creativevents, making it the fastest growing caterer in the UK and Ireland.

The rebrand to Gather & Gather marks an important step in the evolution of MITIE’s catering business. Developing this ethos has been an integral culture shift for the team behind the business, and now forms a keystone for the brand.

The rebrand combines a new approach to marketing with a learning and development programme for all staff, to understand the values that underpin the name change.

Allister Richards, managing director of Gather & Gather, who has led from the front over the past two years, said:

‘Gather & Gather is a reflection of our business maturing from focusing on what we do, to how we do it. Bringing the ideas and creativity of a dynamic team together, and translating that into delivering great service.

“We’re readdressing the balance between client, customer and caterer, and putting the customer at the heart of what we do, offering something truly different to the marketplace.”

Gather & Gather will roll out throughout the spring from 1 May 2013. Full details of the brand experience will be shared at the launch event on Tuesday 23 April, at The Brewery in central London.
