EveryWare shortlisted for Hotelympia Innovation Award
New Anti-Scratch System announced as a finalist in Hotelympia’s prestigious awards
A unique, geometric anti-scratch system, designed and created by EveryWare Global, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Design & Tabletop category of Hotelympia 2014’s standard bearing Innovation Awards.
Billed as one of the seven most innovative design products in hospitality, EveryWare’s White Dot Anti-Scratch System (as seen on its Parameter and Coupe ranges of plates) works by employing a unique, geometric design on the underside of the plates which ensures that they do not metal mark on stainless steel surfaces or when stacked together. The porcelain-glazed plate top is fired at 1300 degrees centigrade (much higher than the industry standard) making it less prone to scratching, while the underside dot design system has been created to be softer than the glaze meaning it won’t scratch as a result of prolonged contact.
The groundbreaking system was heralded by judges as “a great idea, and an attractive end product” and will be displayed on the company’s stand (3268) for the first time ever during the four-day show.
Gavin Owen, Sales and Marketing Director - Foodservice, EveryWare, says: “We’re absolutely delighted to have our design and innovation efforts recognised by a prestigious show like Hotelympia. The system has been recognised because it helps to alleviate a real problem in foodservice outlets. We firmly believe that your tabletop is as important as the food you serve and the welcome you give, so to have your plates suffering unsightly marks and scratches from use can be infuriating and costly. The white dot system provides a unique, highly practical, and impeccably engineered solution to enable outlets to get more from their crockery, meaning it needs to be replaced much less frequently
– we can’t wait to show it off to Hotelympia visitors.”
Everyware will now go head-to-head with six other products in the Design & Tabletop category on day one of the show (28th April 2014), pitching behind-closed-doors to Hotelympia’s team of Innovation Idols – business leaders and captains of industry – in a tense finale where only one can emerge victorious.
Hotelympia visitors will be able to see EveryWare’s White Dot Anti-Scratch System for themselves in a brand new dedicated area which will offer an unmissable snapshot of the most innovative, new products from each category.
