CHR EQUIPMENT - Sustainable Approach Wins Through In Grand Prix

A new ‘green’ kitchen for one of the world’s most famous chocolate confectionery companies has won a top industry award for its designer and installer- and makes it ‘three in a row’ for CHR Equipment.

The Lancashire-based specialist in commercial kitchens has triumphed in the annual Catering Equipment Distributors Association (CEDA) Grand Prix Awards, which recognize and reward the highest levels of excellence and outstanding achievement in completed kitchen installations, encompassing six areas from customer service to large projects in the cost and profit sectors. Only 14 companies in the whole of the country were being considered for the 2011 Awards.

CHR Equipment scooped the prestigious sustainability award, for its refurbishment of the kitchen at Cadbury World, which improved efficiency and productivity whilst reducing energy consumption by some 35%.

It is the third year in succession CHR Equipment has achieved podium placing at the awards, each time in a different category- it won the award for outstanding customer service in 2009 and the large scale public sector award in 2010. Ron Neville, founder and CEO of CHR Equipment, commented, “The sustainability award is the most prestigious, and we were up against some very big players, which amplifies our achievement. It says a lot for our team that we have been recognized by industry leaders three years in succession, and each time for a different aspect, demonstrating our ability, consistency and versatility.”

Judges of the Awards Peter Wintle, former executive chef at the Birmingham Metropole and Bev Puxley, former head of the school of catering & hotel studies at Westminster College commented, “CHR not only saved energy by a careful choice of cooking equipment, but they also made further significant energy savings by reducing the amount of air extraction and tempered air input to the kitchen by around 35%.”

The brief to CHR Equipment for the Cadbury World kitchen, which provides an average 900 meals/day, was to design a new kitchen that would meet today’s requirements in terms of energy usage in peak times whilst still maintaining production.

Gerrard Baldwin, Cadbury World general manager, said: “It was a tricky project, to create a modern environment that would be easy to clean and sustainable, installed with minimal impact on our day to day business. A key aim was to reduce the power requirement, in line with Cadbury’s corporate sustainability policy, and we are achieving an overall saving of about 30 percent: better than we hoped for. Using CHR delivered everything we asked, and more, on time and on budget.”

Founded 20 years ago, CHR Equipment has built a reputation for consistently delivering practical solutions, applying innovative thinking and utilizing developments in technology to create commercial catering solutions on time and to budget whether new build or refurbishment of a hotel or college through to the upper echelons of Michelin-starred establishments and stadia. Its clients include Lancashire County Cricket Club, Holiday Inn, BMW, and Premier League headquarters.
