Foster - leaders in professional food refrigeration, and Gamko - experts in professional drinks cooling presented their newest innovations at the International Host exhibition in Milan, this week. The show was over five days, attracting more than 150,000 visitors, 40% of whom came from outside Italy; for those five days “HOST 2015 made Milan the capital of hospitality”.

Foster Refrigerator and Gamko joined forces at HOST 2015 to highlight their flexible professional back-bar and commercial refrigeration equipment, and have hailed the event a huge success.

Demonstrating their breadth of range Foster showcased a variety of products including its new FlexDrawer and Multideck with energy-saving doors models. Gamko’s product line-up was represented on the stand with its eye-catching Flexbar modular bar system and energy efficient ECO-Line E3 models for cooling bottled drinks, alongside beer taps and energy efficient keg coolers.

The companies also used the opportunity to offer answers on pertinent industry-wide issues, with an Information Zone giving background on key topics, including F Gas legislation and the ErP Directive.

Foster’s Export Manager Rebecca Vincent said: “This was a very successful international show for both brands. It’s a great show that attracts many of our customers and business partners from around the world. Our stand was very busy, and it was great to meet with everyone from across the globe. Thank you to everyone who visited the Foster/Gamko stand.”

Gamko shortlisted for another major industry awards

Gamko have been shortlisted for another leading industry award, recognising the capabilities of its newly launched ECO-Line E3 Drinks cooler.

The professional drinks cooling experts have been selected as a finalist in the Energy Efficient Product of the Year HVAC&R category at this year’s Energy Awards, set up to shine a spotlight on technological advances, new products and new business practises which lower energy use.

Gamko’s ECO-Line E3 Drinks Cooler launched to the market earlier this year, and is already picking up a string of award nominations for its energy-saving credentials, including a shortlisting for an RAC Cooling Industry Award earlier this year.

The new E3 is the latest model in the company’s ECO-Line range of back-bar bottle coolers, and is designed with a range of energy efficiencies making it 60% more energy efficient than its predecessor, saving £175 per year in running costs - the equivalent to 50 bottles of beer per year.
The winners will be announced at the London Hilton on Park Lane at a gala awards dinner on Tuesday 2 December.

Martin Toms, Product Manager at Gamko UK said: “We are delighted the ECO-Line E3 has reached the final of the Energy Awards, and are thrilled that the ECO-Line E3 is gaining the recognition it deserves for its low energy credentials, which ultimately save our customers a lot of money. 

“Energy saving is top of Gamko’s agenda, and making our products as cost-effective as possible for customers is something we have seen come to fruition with the E3, and further improving energy use across our entire product portfolio remains central to our product development.”
