Meiko picks up a Mercury Award for its GreenEye technology®

Abu Dhabi/Offenburg. This year saw the SIAL Group – the leading international food exhibition network – present the 33rd edition of its Mercury travel catering awards.

Eric Waag, Key Account Manager Inflight Catering at Offenburg, Germany-based dishwashing technology manufacturer Meiko once again accepted one of the sought-after trophies on the company's behalf. Meiko won the award in the "Systems and Process Development" category for its innovative M-iQ GreenEye technology®. The company has built up a worldwide reputation in the inflight catering industry as a reliable and innovative partner for efficient dishwashing technology and conveyor systems.

Waag explains why the award matters: "It's something very important to our company because it shows that Meiko is on the right track, especially when it comes to interface design. Providing a visual form of communication at the human-machine interface makes machines easier to use and helps to significantly reduce running costs: Meiko technology can slash the consumption of fresh water and rinse aid by up to 50 percent."

The Mercury jury was impressed with Meiko's efforts to optimise people's working environments and make the dishwashing process as efficient as possible.

Klaus Engesser, Head of Sales and Marketing at the Meiko Group, explains the environmental benefits of GreenEye technology®: "This innovative development boosts our customers' efforts to make their business operations as a whole more sustainable and 'green'. The principle of sustainability is firmly anchored in Meiko's guiding values. Our innovations allow us to take more and more steps in the right direction by finding new ways to protect our global ecosystem."

He continues: "We're proud that the SIAL Group has recognised us as an outstanding industry partner. We see this award both as an honour and as an incentive to continue producing excellent results". The Mercury awards are regarded as an important distinction that serves to identify the strongest partners in the industry.
