Shepherd Filters is honoured to be one of six finalists in the “Product Supplier” category for the 2020 Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards For Excellence – QLD & NT.
The Restaurant & Catering Industry Association (R&CA) is a not-for-profit that represents the interests of over 45,000 restaurants, cafés, caterers, and ancillary businesses in Australia as the national industry body. In addition to actively pursuing National issues and projects of relevance to its members, the R&CA is committed to ensuring that the industry is recognized as one of excellence, professionalism, profitability, and sustainability within its broader social and economic contribution. This includes promoting and advocating the value of the restaurant experience to the public.
Held annually, these prestigious awards recognize and celebrate a commitment to the high standards that have become synonymous with dining in the states of Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Category winners will be announced at a gala dinner being held on Monday 9 November at Victoria Park Marquee. We wish all the finalists for the 2020 Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence – QLD & NT only the best of luck on the night. In a year like no other, we’ve seen incredible adaptability and resilience from many businesses, especially in the hospitality industry, who are tackling these challenges head-on.
Naturally, the spotlight will be on businesses that consistently “plate up” mouth-watering food, tasty beverages, and experiences to remember in these two great states, yet we are humbled that a category exists for those that support these worthy operations.
Our top priority is to ensure we do our part to help the foodservice industry function more safely, efficiently, and responsibly!
As opposed to metal kitchen grease filters that only stop 20-40% of grease vapours from entering the hood, Shepherd Filters capture up to an impressive 98%! This significantly reduces grease build-up that is normally found on the plenum, ductwork, fans, and rooftops.
With less grease accumulating for the long-term, cafes and restaurants actively minimise the risk of potentially catastrophic grease fires.
Quick, easy to install, and disposed of in seconds, changing Shepherd Filters is a welcome alternative to degreasing filters. As grease build-up is heavily-reduced between cleans, savings are made to:
– Labour/contractor costs associated with metal grease filters and exhaust systems
– Reduced frequency and complexity of routine kitchen duct cleaning
– A reduction in water usage and harsh chemicals to maintain a clean kitchen exhaust system; and
– Cleaner rooftop fans, HVAC and other extraction equipment equates to a more efficient operation, less maintenance, and energy savings.
Shepherd Filters are proudly made from 100% Australian wool, which is a renewable resource. The filter media is carbon-neutral and will break down in landfill.
