RATIONAL founder Siegfried Meister receives the 60th Brillat Savarin Plaque

For 60 years, the Brillat Savarin Plaque has honoured personalities for their outstanding service to the hospitality and dining culture. This year, the award went to Siegfried Meister, founder & current Chairman of the Supervisory Board, who made a breakthrough in cooking technology around 40 years ago. His Rational combi-steamer greatly improved the production process and is to date one of the most significant innovations in large and commercial kitchens.

Mr Meister's recipe for success: the primary objective of Rational AG is not sales or profits, but maximum customer benefit. The now76-year-old has always wanted one thing above all: to give professional chefs the best tool to cook their food. RATIONAL regards itself first and foremost as an innovative problem solver rather than an engineer. The company has continuously been setting new performance standards for 40 years.

The prize is awarded once a year by the charitable foundation the Food + Beverage Management Association, the association for hospitality and gastronomy managers.
