In a couple of weeks’ time Rational ovens will be featured at one of the most exciting events in the specialist food retail calendar in the UK – the Farm Shop and Deli Show at the NEC, Birmingham, which opens for three days on April 14th.
Now in its third year, the show attracts trade buyers from across Europe and is one of the focal points for showcasing the very best of UK produce. Over 150 food and drink producers and suppliers will be taking part, representing an industry with over 4,000 farm shop outlets and worth over £1.5 billion.
The Rational ovens on show will be from the state-of-the-art Self Cooking Center® whitefficiency® range. These amazing ovens, which are revolutionising kitchens across the world, can produce large quantities of perfectly cooked food, whether it’s pan-fried, baked, steamed, braised or roasted, consistently, every single time; making them perfect for the production of pre-cooked food for the chilled or frozen food market. Rational will be holding free seminars at the show where visitors can “test-drive” one of the new Rational ovens and watch real meals being produced.
The Dragon’s Pantry
AC Services Southern been installing and maintaining Rational ovens for the last 20 years or so, and we know how good they are. But these latest whitefficiency® ovens are just stunning. They are going to grab a lot of attention at the show.
The Farm Shop and Deli Show this year is also featuring special areas dedicated to each of the main regions in the UK and also sees the return of a special feature, The Dragon’s Pantry, where entrepreneurial food producers and trade suppliers can pitch their business ideas to a panel of industry experts.
I sometimes wonder what the real Dragon’s Den would have made of the very first Rational oven invented by the founder, Siegfried Meister all those years ago.
