Street food and ‘pop-ups’ are the latest trends to find their way from the high street into foodservice, including schools, and this has really put the onus on manufacturers of catering equipment to come up with portable ‘plug & play’ products that cook very quickly and yet require nothing more than a 13amp socket to function.
