Local manufacturers PEL Waste Reduction Equipment, from Balla, Co Mayo, have been awarded the ‘best new innovation award’ at this year’s Gulfood event. Gulfood is the world’s largest food and hospitality show, which took place in the Dubai World Trade Centre, UAE this week. With more than 4,400 companies from some 120 countries exhibiting at the event, the team from PEL were delighted that their product the ‘Baby Jaws’ was selected as a winner at Gulfood 2014.
PEL manufactures a full range of equipment for reducing waste costs and the Baby Jaws is part of the PEL bottle crusher range which reduces bottle volume by 5:1. The Baby Jaws fits under the bar counter and allows staff to reduce bottle volume at source. All of the glass can be recycled and processed back into bottles. PEL has teamed up with Orwell International managing director Steve Lynch who has appointed TSSC as importers and distributors of the PEL product range in the UAE. PEL founder and CEO Tommy Griffith expressed his delight: “The Gulfood Awards are well known throughout the UAE and the world. We are delighted with the exposure this award will bring to us. It’s a great start to the launch of Baby Jaws.” For more information on PEL visit www.pelmfg,com or email [email protected].
