See what’s new at RC Show 2018, Feb. 25-27! RC Show organizers have scoured menus, chatted with top restaurant talent and dug in deep with food brands to uncover the innovations that are shaking up the restaurant and food scene. Here’s a roundup of the breakthrough technology, equipment and flavours featured at this year’s Restaurants Canada’s RC Show:
1. Reverse Tap – Bottoms up is no longer just a drinking phrase – it’s a way to pour beer. Reverse Tap’s dispenser and complementary glassware lets you pour lagers and stouts from the bottom up. Reverse Tap means fewer kegs purchased, fewer bad pours, and improved keg yield. Plus, speedier pours means better customer service and satisfaction.
2. Kodisoft Interactive Table – Kodisoft moves past the kitchen and focuses on the customer’s experience. Utilizing Interactive Restaurant Technology, Kodisoft is an interactive, unbreakable table top that allows customers to browse the menu, review ingredient lists and start salivating over dish photos. Once food and drink are ordered, waiting time becomes playtime, as they enjoy interactive games or catch up on the news.
3. Tellspec – Tellspec allows quick food safety and quality checks on food and drinks. Users can check for ingredient contaminants or test a product’s glycemic load. Their latest scanners are handheld, allowing for easy mobility and testing.
4. Levo Oil Infusion – Levo transforms what’s often a messy and laborious task into a process that’s as easy as making a cup of tea. Levo can be used to combine ingredients, such as vanilla and butter to create a divine tasting cake or to make a basil-infused oil for their next dinner party simply with the touch of a button. With the growth of cannabis in culinary offerings, the possibilities are endless!
5. Permal EcO3Ice – EcO3lce simplifies the act of cleaning ice machines by continuously treating water to reduce microbial buildup. Cleanliness guaranteed!
6. Diversey SKY® 7xi – Mobile devices are a common route for pathogen transmission. Restaurants can sanitize devices used by staff with Diversey’s SKY Disinfection Technology, which uses highintensity ultraviolet light to thoroughly disinfect the device.
7. Clean Meat – What was once science fiction is now fact. Paul Shapiro’s new book Clean Meat delves into revolutionary technology that will someday produce lab-developed meat. Growing meat without animals could save the planet, transform agriculture and reinvent dinner.
8. Seedlip Distilled Non-Alcoholic Spirit – 85% of Canadians don’t order alcohol when they eat out, so it’s no surprise to see mocktails and their counterparts growing in popularity. Seedlip is the world’s first distilled, non-alcoholic spirit. The brewers serve up intriguing flavours, such as Garden 108, made with peas, hay, spearmint, rosemary and thyme.
9. Croust’wich –Sandwich-making is transformed with Croust’wich, a system that displays sandwich and panini ingredients without the bread. When a customer buys a sandwich, ingredients are slid directly onto the bread, using specialized tools. This is a simple idea with a huge impact: It can increase sales volume by 20 to 30 per cent and enhance the speed of service to an average 45 seconds per sandwich.
10. RADARSAT2 – World leading state-of-the-art satellite technology that supports sustainable agriculture in Canada and impacts the food we grow and eat. The Space to Spoon Exhibit will be on display at the show presented by the Canadian Space Agency and Canada Agriculture Food Museum.
