Synergy Grill Technology has been presented with the Energy Efficiency Award at the annual Footprint Awards ceremony for the second year running.
This comes following their win in the same category in 2020 which was awarded to their gas-powered grills, as well as their Sustainable Catering Equipment Manufacturer Award victory in 2019.
Judged by industry specialists, the Energy Efficiency Award was awarded to Synergy’s patented range of electric grills, Synergy eGrill, which consume on average 25%* less electricity than their competitors, equating to around £3,000 in electricity savings per year.
Since its inception in 2011, Footprint Awards has been the barometer for sustainability and responsible business practice in the foodservice sector. The awards remain the only initiative to honour the achievements of companies in the area of sustainability and responsible business practice in the out of home sector and its supply chain.
Justin Cadbury, Chairman of Synergy Grill Technology, is delighted that Synergy Grill has been recognised for its energy efficiency credentials for another year. He said, “The Synergy eGrill is an industry-changing innovation for those who prefer electricity to gas but also want a superior grilling experience.
'It took us over two years of research and development before launching the eGrill, because in order to be called a ‘Synergy Grill’ it has to meet certain criteria, namely unrivalled performance, substantial carbon footprint reduction and rapid self-financing, with eGrill ticking all of these boxes.
'To be awarded with the Energy Efficiency Footprint Award for two years in a row further corroborates that foodservice operators are able to make significant energy savings when investing in our equipment. We are immensely proud of our achievement to develop a product range which re
'ceives continuous recognition for its energy efficiency credentials and we thank the judges at Footprint for this prestigious award.”
Charles Miers, Co-Founder and CEO of Footprint Awards, commended Synergy’s triumph. He said, “Footprint Awards, now in its 10th year, is always such a great barometer of annual progress within the foodservice industry.
'Being awarded with a Footprint Award for one year is an achievement in itself, but three consecutive years is quite a triumph! Synergy’s two-year reign within the Energy Efficiency category pays tribute to their exceptional energy saving and sustainability credentials.
'The judging panel, consisting of industry specialists, commended Synergy’s success in engineering not just the efficient production of energy, but also the recycling of residual energy by transforming natural food oils into fuel.
'Synergy should be incredibly proud of their third Footprint Award win and we congratulate them on this tremendous achievement.”
