Manufacturing in a totally new dedicated 40m Euro modern plant, using the latest hotel porcelain manufacturing technology, ID Fine provides a great RELEVANCE within their portfolio.

A vast collection of very on-trend decorations to enhance a wide variety of foodservice concepts, addressing the current need and desire of eclectic table settings as well a creative plain white option too.

Producing a very strong and durable totally fit for purpose hotel porcelain body with a tremendous price – value for money ratio, ID Fine is the ideal choice for hotels, restaurants, caterers, in fact anywhere within the HoReCa industry that offers plated dining service.

With ID Fine, you have the opportunity to create your own unique concept for your
restaurant. Rather than being limited to a single, pre-selected collection of tableware, you can choose from a variety of pieces to create your own custom look. This not only allows you to express your personal style and vision, but it also gives you the flexibility to change your concept as trends and preferences evolve.

But mix and match collections aren‘t just great for creating a unique dining experience,
they can also be a smart investment.

With ID Fine, you can update the look of your restaurant with just a few key pieces, rather than investing in a whole new collection. This means you can keep your restaurant current and on-trend with less investment.

Since 1990, Cermer has been the world’s leading company in innovation and production capacity for ceramic food packaging containers. They created ceramic containers for the food industry and during this three decades of innovation they have reached an extraordinary respect and passion for ceramics and nature; serving clients all over the World, from the West Coast of the United States to Australia.

Based in Spain in a region with whose ceramics heritage dates backs 3,000 years, ceramics production techniques have been improved while keeping their natural character and specific low impact on the environment.

A perfect ally of a Circular Economy.

Everything starts with the clay, a humble soil material that is found abundantly in the environment. Cermer containers are a non-polluting inert material with a low carbon footprint that complies with the strictest European and US regulations. They consist of three natural elements and are the result of the interactions and relationships between: Fire, Soil, and Water. The containers are produced mixing soil and water. Cermer has been able to adapt an ancient artisan pottery activity to the exigent requirements of the food industry.

In each jar, ramekin or dish lives the Mediterranean identity.

Cermer containers are the result of centuries of migrations along the Mediterranean Sea. The weather, the orography and the pace of life were the seed to originate a strong ceramics culture that has lasted over time to the present day… and beyond.

The main component of Cermer containers is clay, a simple pure raw material and abundant natural resource extracted from quarries located in a ceramic hub of the Iberian Peninsula. After the extraction, which has a very low carbon footprint impact, quarries are naturalized and transformed into wetlands, beautiful landscape, and watering points for animals.

Their stunning long-life containers are totally reusable, they are dishwasher, oven, freezer, and microwave safe; are also easily recycled in a very simple process; with roadbuilding, construction, brick production and tennis courts being just some of the industries that re-use the residue material.

After 30 years of successfully supplying the food packaging industry Cermer have decided to launch 3 collections into the HoReCa Tableware sector. Their product is an ideal and sustainable accessory solution to so many types of foodservice and restaurants operations ranging from dips and sauces to side dishes, tapas, desserts, vegan food, breakfast portions, yoghurts, drinks, buffet and so much more…

In fact, many restaurant operators who have purchased food products packaged in Cermer ceramic pots have continued to use them in their operation.


ArdaCam is one of the major spinning handmade glass manufacturers and decorators in Europe & collaborates with most of the leading brands on the retail Markets in 105 countries.

With 33 years’ experience behind them they are launching their own exciting HoReCa collection, creating and offering designs that supports the pieces of art that chefs and the chefs at heart around the world create. They want to develop themselves and their products in line with the principles of sustainability and are very focused on having a sensitive approach to making an environmentally friendly production.

Their focus & pride is firmly on developing innovative and creative designs and shapes with a difference. In HoReCa individuality can be critical and most necessary.

ArdaCam’s production facility, located in Istanbul, is built on an area of 20,000m2, it provides employment for 400 people and uses highly innovative technology supported by sizeable progressive investment for future development.

Their products are made using the Spinning method. As molten hot glass is taken into a mould and rotated around the axis of the mould , the glass takes shape in the mould. The spinning method has been widely used for many decades.

ArdaCam offer their products both clear, and with the highly creative coloured effect achieved from the addition of Alabaster.

Why Alabaster?

• Alabaster comes from a soft and translucent stone which is often used for carving. It has been used for many years to decorate artefacts.

• Alabaster colours are special when applied while fusing glass.

• The colours are protected by a layer of glass. There is no contact between the alabaster colour and food or drink.

• Alabaster decorating allows for giving colour to the glass without it losing its transparency. Colours can be mixed creating unique results.

• It is a natural stone, which increases the durability of the product.

• Long lasting and scratch proof decoration.

• Suitable for tableware items.

• Lifetime dishwasher safe guarantee.

• Combination of possibilities to combine with other materials to create spectacular presentation.

Art from the nature around us.

Inspired by the smoke and steam of the dishes cooked and prepared with passion!

Steelwood ConCept

Steelwood Concept designs and manufactures high quality steel and wood products predominantly for the HoReCa sector. Our use of wood is highly prioritised, and we only use Nordic woods and mainly Nordic Oak.

We always use 100% of all wood that we buy – nothing goes to waste, not even sawdust. Even packaging for products is carefully selected for good environmental considerations. Another benefit of Nordic Oak is that it is food-safe and to keep it fresh and the effect active, we use sunflower oil on the oak, which is also food safe.

The new HoReCa catalogue which is released early in 2024 has over 400 items where most of them can be built together for multiple solutions, and provide end users great flexibility, functionality and tremendously effective presentation and serving solutions. Besides the regular portfolio of products, we also offer custom-made products and solutions on a regular basis. We work, advise and/or collaborate with other companies who match our style and profile. An example of this is the newest joint-venture with Growit Green, a new product line which was released mid-February 2023.

In the rural areas of Denmark where nature is in charge and dominates the area with wildlife and farming, we have our company and split out on two locations and within walking distance from each other. The smaller 450m2 workshop houses our development and production of all steelworks. Collectively there is over 75 years of professional experience between the three blacksmiths, Co-owner Ricky Leth, Bo, and Kim. In their mancave of a workshop, good music and funny stories are a daily happening, and it´s always great fun to visit and hear them joke and watch their creative tasks.

In the larger 600m2 workshop, you find our professional carpenter Jacob, who has more than 30 years of experience and you will properly recognise him straight away, since it seems his always are covered in sawdust. The location also facilitates our offices, showroom, meeting rooms and warehouse. Here you find office manager Marianne and if you are lucky, sometimes Toby, the always happy-to-play Labrador. If he is not out on meetings with clients somewhere in Europe, Henrik works from his office here in this building and together with Marianne and Ricky, he handles the day-to-day operations, with the primarily focus on sales and design.
