"THINK FOOD" is the name of AICHINGER's visible and tangible statement for EuroShop (Hall 13, Stand A75). The multi-specialist for emotional fresh food experiences and innovative shop fitting products presents trend-setting products and concepts for the mega trends in food retailing: more fresh presentation, more gastronomy and more fresh convenience and to go. The focus will be on the new TopSpot MIO+ series of self-service refrigerated cabinets, the new, curved SIRIUS Swing refrigerated counter, small gastronomic space concepts for food retailing and digital solutions for energy saving and sales optimisation at the PoS.
AICHINGER thus highlights its competence as one of the leading full-range suppliers for shop design in the fresh food sector and its innovation leadership as a manufacturer of energy-efficient refrigerated counters and self-service refrigerated cabinets "Made in Germany". "On the one hand, we are the only supplier for the food retailing industry to offer planning and implementation expertise in the areas of shop design and at the same time for gastronomy and offer our own manufacturing expertise in refrigeration cabinets," explains Patrick Simon, Head of Food Retail Sales at AICHINGER.
The first AICHINGER fair premiere: The complete product family of the new TopSpot MIO+ series of self-service refrigerated cabinets. The highlight: For the very first time products of different temperature requirements can be presented in a self-service refrigerated cabinet - up to temperature class M0+! This allows an unprecedented freedom and flexibility in product placement - from sushi to sandwiches and smoothies. A complete range of new shelf displays and accessories ("P-Boards") enable the best product-facing in the entire spectrum of refrigerated self-service fresh products - and thus more impulses to buy. With this flexibility, the TopSpot MIO+ series stands for maximum investment security.
In-shop catering is one of the future themes in food retailing. Together with the specialists from the new Foodservice division and the food experts from AICADEMY, four different small-scale catering and coffee concepts will be shown live. "The food concepts and the kitchen technology have been developed to meet the requirements of the food retailing industry," emphasises Patrick Simon. In addition to catering, self-service offers with fresh convenience products are one of the top trends in food retailing. In the THINK FRESH segment, AICHINGER will be demonstrating the "ingredients for success" for product presentation which increase the impulse to buy and at the same time hygienic and temperature safety - for chilled and hot fresh products, in service and self-service.
The new, SIRIUS Swing refrigerated counter with its serpentine curves is downright seductive. In combination with attractive glass tops and the multi-stage Frontline display case integrated into the counter, AICHINGER shows how the presentation of high-quality fresh products can look.
AICHINGER's Fresh Food experience worlds appeal to all of the senses - and in future will go even further with digital technology. The spectrum ranges from a world premiere in product lighting and digital store management to sales optimisation and avoidance of food waste. Drastic reduction of energy costs, more efficient staff deployment, more turnover and profit - visitors can experience how this works in the separate "Digital Dark Room" at the AICHINGER stand.
