It's time to say goodbye to 2020, and hello to 2021. Starting a new year is always fun. From celebrating various holidays to making New Year's resolutions and seeing how many of your goals you were able to meet at the end of the previous year, it's almost like the new year brings a fresh start. So, embrace the good times and welcome the new times. The foodservice industry is on the rise with lots of new trends and we're excited to see all the great ideas that come to life in the coming year.
I wanted to take a few minutes to say thank you to all of our amazing customers and partners. We know this year has been anything but ordinary, so we wanted to let you know just how much we value your partnerships and friendships.

One thing that's clear over the course of 2020 is that technology is playing an even greater role in the foodservice industry. From the ability to provide digital ordering and touchless pickup for customers to an operator's ability to receive digital payment and to monitor processes and equipment, the technology trend is growing.
At its core, blast chilling is the safest and most efficient way to move foods through the Danger Zone into ideal storage conditions. Whether you're doing this with an under-the-counter reach-in option or turning your walk-in into a blast chiller, the benefits of using blast chillers are numerous.
Here at RDT, we value our relationships and our partnerships more than anything, and a huge part of that is the working relationship we have with manufacturers' representatives across the country. As a family-owned business, we recognize and embrace that fact that many of our reps are also family-owned, and that's why we carefully select our partners.
One of those amazing partners is RHI Solutions, and we're proud and happy to introduce them to you here.

We've had discussions in the past about dry aging meat and why humidity plays an important role in that process. Humidity-controlled rooms aren't just needed in steakhouses, though.

Quality design and construction are crucial facets to the integrity of every piece of RDT equipment. A poor quality installation can quickly diminish that integrity, greatly reduce the longevity of the equipment’s lifespan, and create unnecessary headaches along the way. At RDT, we want to delight our customers, and have made a strong name for ourselves as industry leaders in refrigeration because we follow through with what we promise, and our products are innovative, and they work. It’s as simple as that.

On July 10, the new Department of Energy standards took effect for medium and low-temperature walk-in evaporator coils and low-temperature condensing unit systems.
Is your evaporator coil plug and play? Does it require the refrigeration installer to add components on site? Does it involve the electrician running interconnective power and control wiring from the evaporator to the condensing unit? Why does it really matter? This is a subject we've heard people talking a lot about, so we wanted to dig into the details.
