Catersource 2017: Cambro Recap

Cambrobooth1Catersource 2017 held in New Orleans this year was a smashing success. The overall attendance and level of enthusiasm from our booth visitors was at an all time high! Caterers from all over the world enjoyed learning about Cambro’s roster of new products but some highlights included:

  • The Pro Cart Ultra™, a revolutionary cart that can hold thermal hot and cold food in the same cart, at the same time.
  • Combo Carrier 1318CC: a compact carrier with gasketless, fully removable door that holds food pans, half-size sheet pans and trays.
  • Cam GoBox Line: a new line of lightweight carriers that retains temperature as effectively as our traditional carriers, at budget-friendly prices.
  • EpicTread™ Trays: Lightweight and colorful, contemporary non-skid trays that can be personalized both front and back.

Chef - Rapid RecipeCambro proudly sponsored the two live cooking competitions—Diced as well as Rapid Recipe Challenge, with equipment and tools used by the chefs. This year the attendees were able to watch behind-the-scenes prep work by a team of culinarians as they prepared thousands of appetizer and entrée samples for the various educational sessions that were continuously taking place.  Cambro helped out with this whole process with its Camshelving® Premium Angled Drying Racks and Tray Drying Racks in the warewashing section. They sure made the washing and organization of all the pots and pans, trays and sheet pans a breeze!

MyFaveThings1Another highlight of the show was the show’s finale, with My Favorite Things—a wrap up by 3 celebrity hosts where they bantered about their favorite new items at the show. Cambro’s 1318CC was prominently featured as a favorite for its compactness and versatility in holding multiple products.
