Why do you feel it is important to support the Hotelier Middle East Awards this year?

It is extremely important for us as a hospitality supplier to support the industry and give back to those who have supported us throughout the year. A. Ronai has grown as a company along with the entire sector and it’s great that events, such as the Hotelier Middle East Awards celebrate the success of everything the Middle East has to offer.

What is your latest offering for the hospitality sector?

We have expanded our portfolio quite considerably over the last few months, introducing more kitchen equipment by partnering with Nisbets and their Buffalo and Polar ranges of ‘plug and go’ aids and refrigeration. We have also introduced exciting collections from Consul Solar Jar, a solar powered table lamp and Bag Buddy, a novel invention providing the answer to the handbag storage question! In chinaware we have extended our range with Pillivuyt and Geminiano Cozzi porcelain as well as new glassware from Rona and bloomix, offering a unique selection of double walled items.   Comas cutlery has also provided us with the opportunity to complement and enhance our existing Cutlery by Ronai collections.
