Moffat: expert solutions for hospital and care sector catering

British manufacturer Moffat is the specialist in hospital catering. Over more than five decades the company has developed a dedicated range, from regeneration trolleys, mobile servery solutions and Grab & Go merchandisers to custom built restaurant counters and ward kitchens.

Typical of Moffat’s innovation is the Chillogen hospital foodservice trolley.  It acts as a refrigerator, holding chilled food, and as a regen oven, heating the food up, and as a hot hold cabinet, holding food until it’s required.  And it does all of this in the one unit.  It cuts down handling, makes life easier for kitchen staff and those serving patients on the ward, and simplifies HACCP compliance.

Measuring up for a new Moffat counter and noticed the existing one was built in 1973. We were wondering if there are any older Moffat counters out there?

Congratulations to the Hetty’s Team

Hat’s off to Hetty’s Tea Shop and to our distributor, Kirklands – the new display counter looks great (and happens to feature our hot and a cold deli Deluxe style drop-in).  The tea shop needed more display space because of its popularity – congrats to Emma Atkinson and her Hetty’s team!

The new structure is designed to ensure our NPD continues to evolve to meet our customers’ changing needs.”

‘Really smart’ merchandiser ups food sales at Torwood Garden Centre

“Don’t let them take it away!” – garden centre’s Blossoms Bistro trials Moffat’s new unit

A good merchandiser can make a huge difference to food sales. E & R Moffat has recently developed a new merchandiser range, called Free-Flow Grab & Go, and asked Blossoms Bistro, in Torwood Garden Centre in Larbert, Stirlingshire, to trial one of the units. “We’re a very busy catering operation in a very popular garden centre, so I guess we were an ideal test case,” says Lindsey Miller, catering manager at Torwood. In fact, Lindsey was so impressed with the merchandiser that, once the trial was over, she kept it. “I told the owners, ‘don’t let them take it away, I need it!’”
