The SUPERIORPLUS 72 scoops award number seven
The number seven, lucky for some, even luckier for Gram, as its latest triumph sees it add a seventh award to the SUPERIORPLUS 72’s ever growing trophy collection.
At the fifth annual Foodservice Footprint Awards, Gram scooped its seventh accolade, as it was announced as the winner of Sustainable Equipment Manufacturer category by an eight strong panel of industry expert judges in a category sponsored by Eau de Vie.
The SUPERIORPLUS72 was shortlisted alongside strong competition from MKN and Winterhalter. Gram took victory as the judging panel including, Julie Barker, Cyrus Todiwala, Keith Warren and Rebecca Hawkins commended Gram’s Generation five product saying “the winning entry is a solution to a massive problem energy wise and a much needed product”.
Taking pride of place alongside the plethora of awards already secured in last year, including, FCSI Sustainable Equipment Award 2014, The Caterer Product Excellence Award 2014, and Catering Insight’s Equipment of the Year 2014 award, the Foodservice Footprint Award recognises Gram’s commitment to supplying the industry with energy efficient refrigeration.
The SUPERIORPLUS 72 provides operators with the most sustainable refrigeration available on the market. Its innovative technology sees it offer ground-breaking levels of energy efficiency meaning that it is 39 per cent more efficient than its previous best-in-class predecessor. Part of Gram’s SUPERIORPLUS 72 success is due to the fact that the product’s energy usage has drastically fallen to 310kW/year, which means reduced running costs for operators. Gram has also included its five-year parts and labour warranty with this product, so operators can be confident that they can rely on their investment in the long-term.
Glenn Roberts, managing director at Gram UK, commented: “We are extremely proud to have been announced as the winner of the Sustainable Equipment Manufacturer category especially when we were up against such stiff competition. The awards have been created to celebrate excellence in sustainability and responsible business practice across the supply chain, and to be recoginsed within this is an achievement that the team should be very proud of”.
