Commercial Kitchens Broadens its Product Portfolio

On January 1st, the CEE Commercial Kitchens Initiative was expanded to include a high efficiency specification for single and double gas rack ovens, as well as revised performance criteria for the convection ovens specification. The Initiative was developed in response to member experience, which indicated that program effectiveness would be increased by the development of a bundle of relevant program offerings in the food service market to support participants.
