For the first-time in the history of the Food Service Equipment industry in India, an event to honour the stalwarts of the industry of century has been instituted from within the industry itself.  The ‘Hall of Fame’ Awards for the Food Service Equipment industry will be held in Delhi on December 7.  According to the people associated with the initiative 30 true icons of the Food Service Equipment industry in the country will be honoured at the Grand ceremony scheduled at Hyatt Regency Delhi.

“People started forgetting the stalwarts of the industry one-by-one over the years.  The attempt is to write the history of these pioneers, honour them and promote them. If we don’t do that, who else will do that?” asked Sunil Khanna, Director, Aster Technologies and a key brain behind the initiative. 30 Hall of Fame Awards will be presented to people who have done pioneering works in the Food Services Equipment industry in three broad categories of manufacturers, suppliers and Designers, he said.

When asked about the concept of the Awards, Khanna said that the awards are in the lines of ‘Wisden Cricketer of the Century’ and will be a one-time award. “There is no commercial angle to it. It’s a one-time event.  We only want to record the history and place the stalwarts of the industry in people’s memory,” he informed.

The guidelines for nominations and methodologies of selection have been already finalised at a meeting of a core team of 20 people from the industry held early this month.  The organisers have also created a think-tank comprising 200 people from the food service equipment industry to select the awardees through a voting process after the due process of nominations. “We are looking at people who are real role models. Few names really stand out in the industry, and we hope to select the Icons of the century through consensus,” Khanna said. 

He said that the initiative has been receiving tremendous response from the industry and all the 30 awards have got sponsors. “No question being asked by people,” Khanna added.
