A Centre of Excellence launches for the catering industry

The UK’s first permanent catering exhibition centre will open in Bristol on the 19th September.

Showcasing products from over 50 leading equipment brands all under one roof, the National Catering Equipment Centre (NCEC) is being billed as a centre of excellence for the catering industry, providing a variety of users, from operators to dealers, consultants to chefs, with a unique venue to discover, train, network and to become immersed within everything to do with catering equipment.

The NCEC will also boast a fully functional training and demonstration kitchen where NCEC onsite development chef, Dean Starling will be available to provide advice on all types of equipment, as well as helpful hints on menu development and onsite catering.

Brands that have already confirmed their involvement in the NCEC include; Dynamic, Olympia, Samsung, Hoshizaki, Thor, Winterhalter, Burco, Lincat, Pira, Polar, LEC, Buffalo, Waring, Churchill, Steelite and many more.

Laura Clarkson, NCEC manager said: “Up until now, the hospitality industry has not really had somewhere to call home.  Football has Wembley, Rugby has Twickenham and now the hospitality industry has the NCEC.  We believe the NCEC will quickly become the place to visit for anyone involved with catering equipment, from dealers to distributors, through to operators, consultants and chefs.” 

Keith Warren, director of CESA, has given his full support to the initiative: "The NCEC is an exciting initiative for the hospitality industry. By allowing customers to try equipment before they buy it, it will provide a real service to both operators and the supply chain.”
