Energy-saving Grab & Go cabinet wins top award

Adande Refrigeration’s Aircell open front, integral refrigerated Grab & Go cabinet has been announced as winner of the FCSI UK & Ireland Sustainable Catering Equipment Award 2017.


The award was presented at a gala dinner during the Catering Equipment Suppliers’ Association (CESA) annual conference in Reading.


Presenting the award, FCSI UK & Ireland chairman Julian Edwards said: “Adande has brought an open front cabinet to the market which not only keeps food fresher for longer, reducing food wastage, but also achieves a significant reduction in energy consumption.”



FCSI recognition comes hot on the heels of field trials of the prototype product at Le Pain Quotidien food to go outlet in London. Over a three week test period, energy consumption of the Aircell® cabinet was measured as 33% less than the store’s existing open front multi deck display, representing an annual saving in electricity costs of £365. Cabinet air temperature was measured to a bandwidth of 4°C in the Aircell® model, compared to an average range of 11°C in the store’s existing display.
