The National Restaurant Association is now accepting applications for the Kitchen Innovations Awards for 2014. Now celebrating its 10-year anniversary, the awards program recognizes equipment and technology that specifically improve the back of the house and benefit foodservice operators. The winning submissions will be featured in the Kitchen Innovations Pavilion at NRA Show 2014, May 17-20 at Chicago's McCormick Place.
"We are seeking new kitchen equipment and technology innovations that deliver the most significant benefits to operators," said Dan Bendall, principal, FoodStrategy Inc. and Kitchen Innovations Awards judge. "Our panel of judges believes continuous innovation is the life-blood of our industry growth and profitability. It's our mission to evaluate the latest innovations and select those which are major advances in kitchen efficiency, quality, safety, conservation, integration with front of the house, and of course improving the work environment."
All applications are judged by an independent panel of industry experts.
The deadline to apply for the 2014 Kitchen Innovations Awards is Dec. 6, 2013. To be considered, all equipment and technology innovations must be introduced within the 24 months prior to NRA Show 2014. Award recipients will be announced in February. Visit Restaurant.org/Show/KI for more details.
