Meiko presents five innovations and draws positive conclusions

At HostMilano, hundreds of visitors came to the Meiko stand to find out about the latest solutions from the quality manufacturer

German hygiene specialist Meiko presented attractive solutions at the leading trade show HostMilano 2023 under the motto #meikoinnovationwek.

For five days, MEIKO experts provided advice on the topics of staff shortages, automation and food waste management. Meiko responded to the urgent issue of the plastic ban with an innovation: the new, energy-saving QuickDry drying system for plastic crockery was presented in combination with the M-iClean H hood-type dishwasher and a drying table.

The new M-iClean PF-S pot and utensil washer, which has big advantages, while the new M-iClean PF-S pot and dishwasher takes up no more than 1 square metre of space and has a folding door that is extremely convenient for staff during cleaning.

The resource-saving UPster K rack transport machine were also on the stand. The resource-saving UPster K shelf transport machine was also on display at the stand. It can save up to 38% energy (compared to the predecessor model Upster K-M 280), which has a very positive impact on operating costs. Ideal for saving even more energy.

Sustainable ideas

Save the planet – if you want to start here, then buying a biomaster is a particularly sustainable idea. Energy can be generated from leftover food and organic waste in a biogas plant – a clean cycle. The new environmentally friendly chemical products under the Meiko Active Eco label were also on show. In addition, visitors could experience the planning of a kitchen using VR glasses, a small cinema provided information on the recycling of leftovers and kitchen waste and the show kitchen was used for live cooking, washing up and demonstrating the function of the BioMaster input station. Another special feature was the presentation of the M-iQ BlueFire belt conveyor machine in the form of a hologram.

The Meiko trade fair stand was correspondingly well attended throughout the five days. Jürgen Hund, Chief Sales Officer (CSO) of the Meiko Group, also emphasised this after his visit to the trade fair stand: “Host is always a highlight in the trade fair calendar for us, and we clearly demonstrated this again this year. I am delighted that our #innovationweek was so well received by the trade visitors and led to a very enriching exchange with partners, customers and industry experts. Now we need to take all of this on board and utilise the new opportunities.”

The hygiene specialist’s expertise was also in demand. Thomas Loos, Head of Product and Segment Management at Meiko Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG, and Michael Meirer, Head of Consulting at Meiko Green, took part in specialist presentations and a panel discussion at the stand of the international specialist planners’ association FCSI. The focus was on the topics of staff shortages, automation and food waste management, for which corresponding technical solutions were presented at the Meiko stand.
