Restaurant & Takeaway Innovation Expo is taking place on Tuesday 9th and Wednesday 10th November at London’s Excel.
Billed as providing visitors with the knowledge and tools they need to increase their businesses’ profits, the expo will feature a huge range of innovative exhibitors ready to show the latest food, drink and technology from epos and delivery solutions to alcoholic drinks and cooking oils. These include BD Signs & Digital showcasing its digital screens and ordering app, Ask Packaging promoting its biodegradable packaging range made from 100% pure sugarcane bagasse, Fast Food Systems with its QSR catering equipment, and McWhinney’s sampling its Irish pork sausages.
Barry Dickman, owner of BD Signs & Digital, will be exhibiting alongside a full sales team. He comments: “We’re really excited to be exhibiting, it’s our first exhibition in two years so it’s going to be great to get back out in front of customers and potential customers and present our services. Amongst everything we’ll be bringing along, which includes the digital screens and signage, we’ll be demonstrating our online ordering app Mi Order. We are also bringing along our new epos partner Eposready as well as our sales team so anybody that wants to find out more should come along.”
The show features a Delivery Zone, an area dedicated to packaging and delivery solutions, as well as the Kitchen Innovation Zone, showcasing state-of-the-art professional kitchen equipment that are both innovative and energy efficient.
In addition the expo is running a comprehensive program of seminars with speakers including Andre Kenny of Just Eat, Zhong Xu of Deliverect and Claire Roper of Quorn Foods, as well as informative panel debates such as 'Join the revolution - Get Delivering’ and ‘The Tech Trends Driving Growth’.
The five winners of the Innovation Awards will also be unveiled at the show following a live presentation by all the finalists to a panel of judges.
Anish Khinda, owner of Ask Packaging, a finalist in the Innovation Awards, comments: "We're really excited to be a finalist. For generations in our family, we've had farming land in India where we predominantly grow a lot of sugar cane. In the past, the bio waste product from the sugar cane would be burned because there was no use for it. But we've started working with the mills to supply them with the bio waste to produce 100% natural food packaging. We now have over 28 products all innovated from bio pulp waste, from fish and chip boxes to burger boxes, right down to standard plates and bowls."
