editor's letter

Well, they say that change is as good as a holiday – but, quite frankly, I’m sure we’d all much rather a trip to Italy or Finland or Fiji (or somewhere equally distant and exotic) than mere routine changes. Alas, we at FM magazine can’t offer an overseas adventure, but change – now that we can do. It’s with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to the magazine’s inimitable editor Michelle Dunner, who has contributed so much to the magazine and taken it in new directions. I’m the online editor for FM and, as of this issue, will be stepping up to fill Michelle’s formidable shoes as editor of the print magazine. It’s a tough act to follow, but I hope to do her, and you the readers, a service by…

ai is transforming computing – a keynote

The concept itself and the innovations within it can, at times, seem like something straight out of a science fiction story. Some of the innovations within this sphere will be seen at the upcoming IFA International Keynote in Berlin in early September. Media and trade visitors from around the world will once again flock to the tradeshow for exclusive, personal insights into leading global player strategies.

wastewater drainage from start to finish: trade waste management in buildings

Floors and drains are an integral part of a commercial kitchen or food processing facility. Their importance cannot be overlooked or undervalued – from the point of discharge from and wash-down of equipment into the linear channels, grease separators and sewers, a complete drainage solution is imperative. Keeping drain elements clean and hygienic is of paramount importance for reducing the risk of foodborne pathogens. The story doesn’t start and finish with grease arrestors – there’s a whole network of drainage upstream that needs to be considered from a more holistic viewpoint, particularly by designers and plumbers. Through understanding the volume of food production, the type of waste produced and the level of hygiene risk, the type of final drainage solution can be determined. In a food production facility, such as a commercial…
