How do you work out what size fridge you need? What’s the capacity of an undercounter warewasher? What sort of cookware do you need with induction? Just what are, or is, MEPS? If you’ve got a catering equipment question, head for the CESA stand at The Great Hospitality Show, where the Association will be sharing its knowledge database. With over 180 member companies, CESA is the leading foodservice equipment trade association and has a wealth of expertise to draw on. It’s offering this expertise as a practical resource for foodservice operators – for example, the new CESA website includes sections populated with guides and ‘how to’ articles.

On stand will be the Association’s latest Equipment Guides – handy documents that give overviews of various equipment categories along with articles on pertinent topics such as legislation, maintenance tips and the latest technology trends. These are free to Hospitality visitors.

CESA’s stand is at the heart of the CESA Innovation Zone, where leading equipment companies will be showing their very latest designs and concepts. “The Zone is where professional foodservice operators find out what’s new in catering technology in 2017,” says Glenn Roberts, chair of CESA. “With many new product launches on show, it promises to give a fascinating insight into the future for anyone involved in purchasing or using catering equipment.”

CESA will also be promoting its CFSP (Certified Food Service Professional) programme. With well in excess of 400 CFSP-accredited alumna in the industry, it is gaining recognition as a key training and professional development tool. The scheme gives students – both suppliers and operators – a holistic understanding of the way commercial kitchens operate. At Hospitality CESA will be talking about new training modules being developed during the coming year.
