Levelling Up at the 2024 RC Show

F&H highlights several hot products to check out at this year’s show

The RC Show returns to Toronto’s Enercare Centre at Exhibition Place April 8 to 10. The annual event is the ultimate gathering place for the food-and-beverage industry to come together to learn, grow and network.

This year’s theme, ‘Level Up,’ aims to support the industry, discover new ways to push the boundaries of what’s possible, and embrace innovation in unique ways. From how to discover new flavours, re-imagine classics, and surpass diner experiences, LEVEL UP is all about helping industry professionals take their craft and business to the next level.

The editorial team at F&H has once again chosen a few hot products not to be missed on this year’s tradeshow floor.

Product Preview

MEIKO: BioMaster

The BioMaster waste-treatment system by MEIKO eliminates manual tote handling, optimizes hygiene and ergonomics in the kitchen operation, and lowers food waste management costs. It’s intuitive, straightforward and easy to use, and that means recycling food waste into renewable energy is easier than ever. Visit MEIKO GREEN in booth 2027 to see the BioMaster in action.

Hormel: HORMEL® BACON 1™ Brand

Crafted to look and taste as if it’s made from scratch, HORMEL® BACON 1™ Brand allows operators to serve a rich, thick, fully cooked bacon. Its robust, smoky taste is made by smoking over real hardwoods, and a proprietary cook process creates a mouthfeel indistinguishable from bacon cooked from raw. This favourite of Chef D (of ’At Home with Chef D’) is available to sample at RC Show booth 3013, and free cases are available at hormelfoodservice.ca/bacon1

Alto-Shaam: Prodigi

Alto-Shaam will showcase its latest ventless innovation in the combination-oven category, Prodigi, equipped with a Ventech condensation hood. Ventech hoods on Prodigi combi ovens maximize floor space and improve efficiency and workflow, with no hood required. This eliminates the significant costs associated with the installation and maintenance of traditional hoods. Powered by innovative condensation technology, Ventech hoods condense steam while capturing and removing grease-laden air, vapors and lingering smoke. Check it out at booth 2619.

Hatco Corporation: Drop-In Induction Dry Well

Hatco Corporation’s Drop-In Induction Dry Well utilizes induction technology to keep hot foods at optimum temperatures and maintain their made-fresh quality. The well has many beneficial features, including two heat zones, two temperature sensors per zone and precise temperature controls. Plus, it is designed for use with stainless steel food pans, so there is no need for specialized induction pans. This well is the ideal choice for any foodservice operation’s hot food well needs. Visit them at booth 2341 to learn more.
