The 2017 Restaurants Canada Innovation Showcase

The Restaurants Canada show returns to the Enercare Centre in Toronto Feb. 26 to 28. The show is set to showcase a wide variety of new food-and-beverage products, equipment and technology. Here is sneak peek at some of the items that will be on display:

Grains to Fuel Your Day

Chase Global Foods has launched Melanie’s Medleys Artisanal Grain Blends. These breakfast creations are clean, natural grains blended fresh in small batches with fruit, nuts and other natural ingredients. They are a unique “better-for-you” breakfast option but are also versatile enough to be used in exotic salads, snacks and desserts. Melanie’s Medleys are available in foodservice and home-meal replacement formats, can be served hot or cold and can be frozen to retain freshness.  This ready-to-eat treat is available in four flavours: Chocolate Coconut Almond, Caramel Apple Pecan, Cinnamon Walnut and Fruit & Almond. Seven more varieties are set to launch in Canada in 2017.

Small but Mighty

RATIONAL’s latest innovation — the SelfCookingCenter — is designed to be the perfect centrepiece for any Canadian kitchen. This versatile piece of equipment can grill, roast, bake, steam, stew, blanch or poach food, all within a space of less than 1 m² (11 ft²). RATIONAL will be hosting live cooking demonstrations so you can see the system in action and learn how you can save money, time and energy while improving the quality of the dishes you create.

Prime Cuts

Creating an experience customers cherish, Sterling Silver Premium Meats is the centrepiece of memorable culinary creations. As a foodservice expert, operators understand the value of what is produced in their kitchen. By choosing Sterling Silver Premium Meats, operators are selecting Cargill’s highest-quality beef for consistency and perfection in cut. In addition to serving quality beef, operators gain access to materials to increase brand awareness, educational offerings to energize wait staff and culinary collaborative support. We’re committed to partnering with operators to drive customer engagement and loyalty.

The motor base is also covered by a three-year hassle-free, commercial replacement warranty.

Cooking Smarter

Lainox has been focused on the development of high-quality and reliable combi ovens since 1981. In 2013, Lainox launched Naboo — the device for cooking representing a significant breakthrough using Android-based tablet-style technology. The unique feature that distinguishes Naboo from all other combi ovens is the Cloud, which offers Naboo customers a rich and constantly evolving resource library. Naboo offers the ability for standardization across multiple locations by providing a free synchronization service that allows chain-users to send new recipes and instructions to all locations with one simple click. Come by our booth at the Restaurants Canada Show for a live cooking demonstration.

Combining Forces

The combined entity of Russell Food Equipment and Hendrix Restaurant Equipment & Supplies is making its Restaurants Canada show debut Russell Hendrix Foodservice Equipment as. The newly merged companies kicked off the New Year operating under its new name and over the course of the next several months, the company will be entering a transitional period where both companies will be combining to create one company. This union was driven by the natural fit and substantial synergy opportunities between the two companies.
