Blowing hot and cold: the best of both worlds

Moffat’s new MHC merchandiser combines hot and cold Grab & Go in one unit

PrintFood-to-go venues are often short of space front-of-house, so operators are increasingly looking for ways to offer a range of tasty Grab & Go menu items on a small footprint. As well as being compact, the display equipment needs to hold foods at safe temperatures, without deterioration, and show it off to its best advantage.

In response to customer demands, Moffat is launching the new MHC Grab & Go food merchandiser which innovatively combines hot and cold display in the one slimline unit. It’s ideal for keeping sandwiches, drinks and salads perfectly chilled, whilst keeping hot snacks such as pasties and sausage rolls at the ideal serving temperature.

Ormskirk Hospital’s hot and cold tray trolley is a ‘caterer’s dream’

Moffat's Single Tray Service trolley delivers patient meals at Ormskirk hospitalMoffat’s trolley speeds service, eases handling and improves food quality

“A caterer’s dream” is how Angela Wakefield, the catering and hotel services manager at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, describes the Moffat Versigen Single Tray Service (VTS) trolley that’s currently delivering meals to patients in Ormskirk Hospital’s Bluebell Ward.

Certainly the trolley has improved food quality for the patients, but it’s not just that: it’s also the way it keeps both hot food hot, and cold food cold – even though they are loaded onto the same trays, in the same trolley.  And because all nursing staff have to do is to take the tray from the trolley to the patient, without having to add anything, it speeds up food service and makes life easier.

A part of local history returns to Bonnybridge

Bonnybridge mural This story was taken from Our Facebook page on May 8th

A part of local history returns to Bonnybridge. For many years a mural showing the factory and workers at the world famous Smith & Wellstood Iron foundry was painted on the factory wall. Due to the closure of the business and redevelopment the wall and mural was sadly destroyed. With help from local businesses and people enough money was raised to replace the mural and it is now on display at the Bonnybridge community centre.A number of businesses can trace their routes back to Smith & Wellstood and Moffat is one of these. Both Eddie and Robert worked there and Moffats employed many people who had also been with the foundry. Moffat are proud to have been involved in returning this landmark to Bonnybridge.
