Mapping world’s favorite take away foods Recent research on the world’s most popular takeaway meals demon- strates the universal appeal of certain kinds of food. The research underlines the importance of multifunctional appliances in allowing businesses to meet the diverse tastes of customers, according to Stephan Leuschner, Di- rector of International Key Accounts at Rational. The research was carried out by Moneybeach in January 2021. Glob- ally speaking, the two most popular foods for takeaway and delivery are pizza and Chinese. Pizza dominates most of Europe along with India, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Thailand, while Chinese food finds most favor in the US and Mexico, Great Britain and Ire- land, China, Australia and Nigeria. There are a few surprising variations – for example, Tapas is top in Den- mark, while Brazil and Sweden pick Sushi, Turkey’s favorite takeaway is pasta and Russia plumps for kebab more than anybody. “What these dishes have in com- mon is they are easy to prepare, can be brought to temperature quickly, and look appetizing once they’ve been delivered to a customer’s home,” says Leuschner. “A variety of cuisines have become international staples. That means operators around the world have to be able to offer a diverse range of foods.” The mix of demand goes hand in hand with a need for consistent re- sults. “Customers want to be sure they’ll get the same quality of food every time they order from the same brand,” says Leuschner. “Equipment with intelligent cooking systems, like the iCombi Pro combi steamer from Rational, are perfect for this.” The iCombi pro features four new intelligent systems that control every aspect of the cooking and operational processes. It comes with thousands of completely customizable recipes built in. The cooking system’s powerful sen- sors make constant adjustments to the cooking conditions, guaranteeing perfectly consistent results. “A single iCombi Pro can produce all of the world’s favorite takeaway dishes; thousands of dishes can be prepared over and over again to pre- cise requirements. Furthermore, the ability to update and add new recipes means that responding to new trends is easy,” says Leuschner. With more businesses looking to meet the increased demand for take- away and delivery service, equipment like the iCombi Pro is an excellent way of diversifying menus while guaran- teeing the kind of consistent high quality results customers expect. RATIONAL is the leading provider in hot food preparation equipment and, with the iCombi Pro and the iVario multifunctional cooking system, the company delivers 95% of all conventional cooking applications. Rational’s Connected Cooking allows operators to monitor, manage and update their Rational appliances remotely, from a PC, tablet or smartphone. iKitchen is the combination of the iCombi Pro, iVario Pro and ConnectedCooking – iKitchen delivers the best kitchen management and the best cooking solutions.
