FEM launches Manitowoc’s new Sotto range of icemakers
Manitowoc’s new Sotto range of undercounter ice machines has a redesigned refrigeration system that delivers up to 43% more ice, compared to previous models. It means even sites with limited backbar space can have plenty of quality ice on tap, right where it’s needed. Since the machine is front venting, it needs no top or side clearance, so it can be fitted into the most compact of spaces. Manitowoc icemakers are marketed by FEM (Foodservice Equipment Marketing) and the Sotto range is available through distributors nationwide. (more…)
Hubbard launches Scotsman’s new ice display concept for fish retailers
An eye-catching display of different varieties of fish on a bed of ice can be a huge customer draw, encouraging sales and impulse buying. However, the production, storage and loading of the ice onto the display can be a logistical nightmare and point of stress.
To address these issues Scotsman has developed Totem, an ice machine that dispenses ice directly onto the fish display counter. Totem saves space and time while reducing costs – plus it ensures that there is ice at all times to refresh the display. The Scotsman Totem is distributed in the UK through Hubbard Ice Systems.

Hubbard Ice Systems launches machines making ultra-cool, extra large ice
The supercube or thimble is recognised as the gourmet ice cube for drinks service in terms of cooling, slow melting and crystal clear appearance. Typically machines make supercubes in a small (8g) or standard (20g) size. A few are available to make large, 39g cubes. But these days some operators are looking for more. Something designer, something that makes a big, bold statement. Now Hubbard Ice Systems, which markets the Scotsman range in the UK, has launched the ‘super-supercuber’ ice machine. It makes giant ‘XL’ cubes, weighing 60g, which look stunning in the glass.
