Foodservice Revival

The 2022 RC Show hybrid event returns to Toronto

The RC Show is returning to Toronto’s EnerCare Centre for its 2022 edition from May 9 to 11, 2022. Attendees can expect to find solution-based content both in-person and online, covering topics and issues that matter to operators, plus culinary and bar competitions and signature events.

The event’s theme of “Revive Your Business” echoes Restaurants Canada’s increased forecast in foodservice sales to nearly $80 billion in 2022. Featured events include RC Show’s Opening Night Reception, Industry Night Out and Breakfast with Champions, as well as a fully functional pop-up restaurant and nationally streamed conference sessions.

Also back this year live is the Garland Canada Culinary Competition, celebrating the best and brightest chefs leading Canada’s culinary future

Committed to reviving the industry and continuing its dedication to providing equal opportunities for all chefs, 50 per cent of the top spots will be held for female chefs, while also prioritizing the showcase of BIPOC culinary talent.

The show’s highly anticipated trade show floor will once again welcome visitors in person and F&H has gathered some not-to-miss booths to visit:

Food waste in foodservice simply can’t be avoided. That means odours, less kitchen space, staff time to manage it — then off to the landfill. BioMaster® homogenises kitchen waste into a smaller, fluid biomass. It’s pumped through a closed system into a tank where it can be stored for weeks until removed by your disposal company. Biogas plants can even produce fuel from it for heat and power. Ask about MEIKO’s sustainable food-waste management solutions.
