Gastros Switzerland AG

Company founded: March 2011

Innovative system induction based in order to keep food warm at a buffet.

With the launch of the InductWarm® system, Gastros AG, based in Technopark Zurich has become the world's first and only provider of specially-coated shatter-resistant gastronorm porcelain bowls equipped with induction fields. The internationally patented system consists of two components: 1st the induction elements and 2nd the InductWarm®-porcelain.
Our current product line consists of the InductWarm® table top model, InductWarm® tables, and InductWarm® build-in version, together with related accessories.
The system was developed over 8 ½ years under the leadership of Timo Hafner and has been available on the market since early 2012. The first customers to use InductWarm® as a food warmer on buffets were the Hilton Hotel Group, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Lufthansa, Air Berlin, Nestle, and many others.
The porcelain is manufactured by Bauscher, the world's leading manufacturer of porcelain for the gastronomy and hospitality industries since 1881.
Nowadays, buffets are most commonly set up with the well-known chafing dishes. These are metal boxes designed to keep food warm via a surrounding water bath heated with gel fuel. Our vision is to see InductWarm® systems used on buffets around the world in hotel, restaurant, and catering settings.
The system won the 2011 GastroVision Award for the most innovative product in the gastronomy business. The system will be launched in the Asia markets in the first quarter of 2013 and will be launched to the US market in the second quarter of 2014.
For the new product line InductWarm 200 Gastros received the worldwide certification and is now ready for the global market.
The company is made up of a passionate team driven by a pioneering spirit who's goal is to change the buffets of the top-hotels worldwide.
