Catering equipment leaders join forces to tackle critical issues

Sustainability, training, energy labelling and customer care will be the subjects under discussion at the inaugural Foodservice Equipment & Supplies Global Leadership Summit.

Catering equipment manufacturers all around the world are tackling critical problems that will have a huge impact on the foodservice industry. The next step in developing closer relations and common solutions to the issues will be the inaugural Foodservice Equipment & Supplies Global Leadership Summit. It takes place on Thursday 22nd October in Milan, prior to the opening of the HOST Exhibition the following day.

The three associations leading the development of the event are EFCEM, the European Federation of Catering Equipment manufacturers, of which CESA is a member, NAFEM, the North American Federation of Foodservice Equipment Manufacturers and NAFES, the National Association of Food Equipment and Suppliers, which covers Australia and New Zealand.

Simon Frost, chair of CESA, says, “By sharing knowledge, experience, resources, expertise and learning, we can help each other, and our industry, to meet the common challenges we all face. The knowledge database we will be able to generate will be valuable and relevant to the industry at large and our members locally.It is expected that there will be some hard edged outcomes that will benefit our industry internationally and at local level, this is an exciting new development for all concerned.”

The Global Summit will also cover areas such as water and installation standards, Building Information Modelling, supply chain relationships and customer service. The meeting will be facilitated by Doug Fryett CFSP, a leading foodservice industry consultant and CFSP program trainer. As well as leaders from the three international associations, it is expected that representatives from various national catering equipment trade associations, including CESA, will attend the Summit.

Members of CESA who wish to raise specific questions at the Summit should contact the association. Confirmation of the venue and a detailed agenda will be available shortly.
