50-year-old Foster seeks oldest fridge

UK: To mark its 50th anniversary, Foster Refrigerator has launched a competition to find the oldest working Foster product in a commercial kitchen.

The entrant found to own the oldest Foster product will win a brand new EcoPro G2 EP700H worth a list price of £2500 or an equivalent product of the same value.

“We’re regularly with customers in their kitchens, and it never ceases to amaze us how many older Foster fridges are still fully operational and going strong,” said Nick Bamber, European head of marketing. “Our products have a reputation for being reliable, so we want to know who has the longest standing.”

Dealers who are aware of longstanding Foster products can encourage owners to enter the competition. If the winning owner includes the dealer name in their entry, the dealer will receive £250 off their next order.

The competition closes on October 1. To learn more about the competition and to enter visit www.fosterrefrigerator.com/competition.
