Try before you buy at Bristol equipment centre



A new centre has opened offering foodservice operators the chance to see, touch, view and test a wide range of catering equipment from tableware to combi ovens.

The National Catering Exhibition Centre in Bristol officially opened its doors on Tuesday 19th September 2017 after Glenn Roberts, chairman of the Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA), cut the ribbon in front of 200 specially invited guests.

The centre will act as a permanent showcase for over 40 leading catering equipment brands and aims to inspire, educate and provide impartial advice to everyone involved in catering, from dealers and consultants through to chefs and managers.

Glenn Roberts comments: “By allowing customers to try equipment before they buy it, the NCEC will provide a real service to both operators and the supply chain.  It also has the potential to be a valuable educational venue, providing ‘hands on’ experience to back up knowledge gained in training schemes such as CESA’s CFSP and Principles of Foodservice programmes.  It’s a very welcome initiative.”

The Nisbets Avonmouth store has now relocated to the NCEC with over 2,500 products available to purchase, from chef knives and clothing, to furniture and refrigeration.
