It’s always nice when someone suddenly points out something that you had already noticed. Asking ‘why’ about something is a very healthy exercise. For example, why is one website more successful than another? Why does a good advertising agent design the creative content of their ads in a certain way? Why does a photographer frame something one way but not the other? By the end of the day, hundreds – if not thousands – of visual images have passed before our eyes and knowing how to grab your customer’s attention to maximise impact is now more important than ever.
So let’s ask ourselves, what differentiates a good menu from a bad one at a café or restaurant? A good menu on one of our García de Pou blackboards, for example, can be easily distinguished from a bad one by any number of visual elements, but also by the way in which the information is laid out.
Here we are, presenting even more new items from the García de Pou catalogue. This time, we want to present a number of items from the stylish, reusable and robust dining set and tableware
ranges that are available in our catalogue.
We have a galvanised steel buffet collection that is ideal for setting tables, displays and canteens for a retro or rural look, as well as a new melamine line in black with a brown stripe aimed at hotels, restaurants and catering companies that maintains the elegant look of porcelain while incorporating a more modern touch.
Focusing on the galvanised steel collection, you can see how the metal composition offers a rustic and original finish. This steel has been treated with a special lacquer for increased resistance to wear and to allow contact with food items. The collection consists of three round trays, a pitcher, an oval tray and a truncated mini cup, the perfect collection for using on buffets and table service as it can be used to hold all sorts of food and cutlery.
This novelties instalment
comes full of fresh products that we’re very excited to tell you about. First of all, we have some new products that we think offer the best properties while also being as environmentally-friendly as possible. We would particularly like to highlight the cutlery items, salad containers, cups and snack cup holders made from biodegradable materials.
In order to comply with the new European Directive on reducing disposable plastics, which will come into force in 2021, we are focusing on sustainable materials; in other words, those that are made from renewable resources.
In this post, we are emphasising two new alternative materials to oil derivatives. Although they are very different, all three are considered to be eco-friendly materials because they are 100% biodegradable, additive-free and contain no toxins, thereby fully respecting the environment.
The new García de Pou catalogue is now a reality, containing more than 300 new products and 5,000 already popular ones. There is also a strong commitment to the eco-friendly range and items made from sustainable, recyclable and biodegradable materials.
First of all, we would like to highlight the new “Vichy” design by Like-Linen, a classic design that emulates a fabric table cloth look to evoke a feeling of home-made traditional cuisine. This set of high-quality serviettes, table covers and table cloth rolls are made from Spunlace, a complex viscose and cellulose compound. This material produces strong products that are pleasant to touch, making it seem like they are made from textile fabric. Furthermore, both the raw material and the inks are biodegradable and compostable, so they help look after the environment.
New arrival: a very stylish basic
“volare… oh, oh!… cantare… oh, oh, oh, oh!…” This song that brings summer holidays memories is the one that inspired the standard design of Garcia de Pou already twenty years ago! The drawing resembles fireworks, also typical of the summer soirées, have you ever wondered about?
Let’s get practical and innovative
In a previous post we introduced you some of our NEW PRODUCTS 2017 where we were showing off the innovations in our organic, reusable and biodegradable packaging lines. There are so many novelties that we couldn’t mention them all in only one post, so we’d like to take you again to our supplementary catalogue 2017 and emphasize some very practical and innovative products.
Eating well has always been considered to be a pleasure and an experience that most long for.
The chef James Beard says: «Food is our commonality, a universal experience»
Catering services are meant to provide the same excellent experiences that we receive from restaurants, with the added difficulties that the culinary experience takes place in all sorts of spaces and conditions, together with completely differing time scales. What can we tell you that you don’t already know!?
Customizing napkins and tablecloths in a restaurant is only one of many ways to use branding. Bear in mind that on average, a client waits for twenty minutes for their meal to be served, and that while they are waiting, they are often looking at the table… Why not use this precious time to remind them of who you are, what you offer and to give them a unique experience on your site. With customized napkins and tablecloths we create expectation for our clients and, most importantly, we make them a promise.
Garcia de Pou started its participation in international trade fairs some years ago, and today the firm has clearly consolidated its presence in European exhibitions. In the first quarter of 2016 the company has presented the latest products at the five major trade shows of the sector: Paperworld and Ambiente (Frankfurt), Sigep (Rimini), Europain (Paris) and Hotelympia (London).
