The National Restaurant Association recently released the 2014 Culinary Forecast and with that a list of the Top 20 trends.
According to the survey from 1,300 chefs, the one trend still expected to dominate all trends in 10 years is environmental sustainability. On this year’s survey it ranks #3 but when asked which current culinary trend will still be the hottest 10 years from now, Environmental Sustainability took the lead with 38% outpacing other current trends. Clearly, environmental sustainability is an increasingly important influencer for foodservice operators when making operational decisions.
While environmental sustainability tactics can mean increased costs, there are definite solutions for operators that help with sustainability efforts PLUS reduce costs. The Cambro Combo Cart Plus®, is not only Energy Star rated but it has also received the endorsement from the Green Restaurant Association.
Whether it’s the full-sized or half-sized model, both are designed to dramatically save energy. The tall cart (CMBPH) is on average over 50% more energy efficient than leading competitive metal cabinets, while the low cart (CMBPLH) is over 180%!
