ith the implementa- tion of the EU Ecodesign Directive last July, operators need to look for


manufacturers that offer products that feature highly within the new labelling system. Hoshizaki UK brings to the market the most up-to-date innovation in refrigera- tion and icemaker technology, ensuring operators have access to the latest energy efficient models suitable for a range of budgets. Hoshizaki UK is committed to improving sustainability within foodservice, and it aims to raise awareness and continue to drive category innovation. This com- mitment has led to the design of the Gram SUPERIORPLUS 72 – a refrigeration cabinet that uses ground-breaking technology and a revolutionary design.


The unit has excellent tempera- ture stability, maintained by a unique air circulation system and sophisticated controls. The inter- nal cabinet airflow ensures cor- rect and uniform temperature throughout, and it is fitted with a fan switch to minimise air loss when the cabinet door is opened.

ing into consideration the needs of chefs during a busy service. The design of the removable shelves make it easy to clean, and proper maintenance can extend the life- span of the machine, making it more commercially sustainable. The Gram SUPERIORPLUS 72 comes with a five-year parts and labour warranty, so caterers can be assured that their investment will be looked after as well as providing a maximum return. The hydrocarbon refrigerants present in the Gram SUPERIOR- PLUS 72 (along with the majority of Hoshizaki’s portfolio) have a zero ozone depletion potential and global warming potential of just three, compared to the more damaging HFCs often used in

refrigeration. Additionally, the Gram SUPERIORPLUS 72 uses next-generation SECOP compres- sor technology and has 100mm insulation throughout.


Improvements in technology and design means that the Gram SUPERIORPLUS 72 is 44% more efficient than its ‘best in class’ Plus 600 (Generation 4) predeces- sor. Energy use and running costs have decreased massively, from 509kWh a year to 285kWh. Based on a rate of 10p per kWh, the aver- age operator can expect to spend only £28.50 a year on the Gram SUPERIORPLUS 72*

Hoshizaki UK offers other models catering for varying space and budget constraints, including the Midi, Twin Eco and Compact.


Emerald Class ice machines offer the world’s widest range of hydrocarbon ice-makers, all with exceptional energy-efficient credentials and energy savings of up to 40%. The range has been competitively priced to make this pioneering technology available to all, and there is a range of unit sizes, with a choice of flake, nugget or cubed ice.


The outstanding reduction in


energy usage that Hoshizaki UK’s portfolio provides goes towards supporting a more sustainable future in foodservice. The more caterers that introduce such technology, the more we as an industry can contribute towards government targets and reducing the industry’s carbon footprint.
