Correlated design with current issues

Harmonie – new sorting table to fight against waste in mass catering.


With this new sorting table , Matfer Bourgeat offers a unique ergonomic design to bring comfort and practicality to its users in mass catering: the three waste chutes fit flush to the table top and provide a more stable surface and a smooth gliding movement for platters. Cleaning of the area is also optimized. In addition, the absence of ramps allows users, especially children, to move closer to the waste holes to facilitate the operation. Another major advantage, Harmonie is a completely autonomous table, operating on battery power. With no connection constraints, it is not only very easy to move but also more aesthetic and hygienic, without unsightly wires that are not always clean.

Matfer Bourgeat has also developed decision support, with two optional weighing systems: a digital weighing system that shows the amount of waste per category, and a wireless connected weighing system with a long-lasting battery. These weighing systems allow all the figures to be integrated into kitchen management software. Recovering and analyzing this data has several advantages: educational value; checking and controlling waste as part of compulsory treatment; changing the method of purchasing, reducing quantities, etc. to fight against waste, a new challenge for the catering industry.
