Fracino clinches finalist accolade in prestigious European Expo awards.

Fracino’s innovation and world class manufacturing techniques have been acknowledged by a judging panel on the European Coffee Expo’s prestigious Innovation Path & Awards.

The manufacturer’s Velocino2 was in the final line up of the high-profile event at Olympia aimed at senior buyers, decision-makers and influencers who purchase and specify coffee and tea related products and equipment.

The Velocino2 - an innovative and unique ‘hybrid’ 2 group espresso machine which combines the reliability of a traditional machine with the ease of use of a fully automatic system - was selected as one of the most inventive products, services and solutions among the 100 plus exhibitors.

Recently launched following the success of the Velocino1, the machine is built to last for high volume sites with high staff turnover and requires minimal barista training.

Fracino MD, Adrian Maxwell, said: “There is no other machine on the market like the Velocino2 which benefits from our world class production methods and enables operators to produce two 12oz drinks at the same time.

“We’re delighted and honoured to be among the exhibitors and awards finalists at this high-profile Expo which is a unique trade show and a dynamic showcase for industry best practice and raising standards.”

Anne Swift, MD of European Coffee Expo, commented: “We were inspired and impressed by the high standard and diversity of entries from global leaders and small suppliers alike and the judges deemed Fracino a worthy finalist. The awards highlighted the industry’s collective wealth of talent and innovation.”

“The shortlisting follows the news that Fracino has been named the country’s top coffee equipment supplier by the industry in Out of Home’s State of the Nation Survey. ”

A champion of British manufacturing craftsmanship and proud member of Made in Britain, Fracino’s machines are commissioned by independents and big brands including SUBWAY®, PizzaExpress, Patisserie Valerie and AMT coffee shops
