Kitchenology: CESA zone showcases the latest foodservice technology
Plus training, education and the Foodservice Knowledge resource
Stand 448, the Professional Kitchen Show, NEC Birmingham, January 22-23 2019
The impact of digital technology on commercial kitchens is gathering pace and the Professional Kitchen Show’s Kitchenology Zone, which is supported by CESA, will spotlight the very latest advances. Centre stage will be a Smart Kitchen, where visitors will be able to walk through a complete kitchen showcasing some of the latest models, including connected warewashers, refrigerators and cooking appliances.
“Equipment that’s connected via the internet is already proving its worth in terms of improved efficiencies, lower running costs, less down time and much-enhanced ‘first time fix’ rates,” says John Whitehouse, chair of CESA. “The Kitchenology Zone Smart Kitchen is the place to see how it all works together.”
CESA will also be promoting its training and education programme for 2019. The CFSP accreditation (Certified Food Service Professional) has become internationally recognised for giving an holistic understanding of how foodservice businesses work. However, it’s only a part of the programme that CESA is developing. For 2019 courses range from Principles of Foodservice, a short introduction for new starters to the industry, to a comprehensive Networking and Connectivity module aimed at maintenance staff and service engineers.
A major part of CESA’s remit is to help foodservice operators get answers to their equipment questions. Visitors to the stand will be able to find out about the Foodservice Knowledge resource. CESA has created specialist committees, covering everything from refrigeration to warewashing, and part of their function is to provide a pool of specialist knowledge and advice on their area of expertise, which anyone in the industry can access, via CESA.
