Chairman & CEO
Innovator and Chairman Justin Cadbury developed the concept of creating a perfect fuel efficient burner to be used for gas grills to produce better foods at a lower energy cost. Going into full production, initially on a smaller unit made exclusively for a major outlet. However Synergy Grill needed a range of sizes and adaptation for the harsh treatment in commercial kitchens. Feedback from experienced Chefs was vital and this factor has been a central theme why Synergy has won so many top Awards and is preferred by many leading Chefs. The Synergy Grill is a unique Patented revolutionary British gas grill invention tailored to meet the multi-demands of the hospitality industry. The Company based in Cambridgeshire is now benefiting from significant global growth and wider experience input delivering ever higher reliability. With global recognition, Synergy Grills are being used 365 days a year, around the world by Michelin starred and famous Chefs. Our diverse customer base covers independent businesses to International chains, all with one very simple common goal – Great quality food, delivered with cash saving energy efficiency to lower user costs!
Benefits include reducing gas bills by 40-60%, delivering better quality food at a faster speed, with added benefits such as uniquely no fat tray to clean, no thermocouple to constantly replace, advanced flame ion detection system, HSI ignition - all with one simple switch use. Let the technology work for you, so you spend the time producing the better quality food and reducing your daily running costs. Synergy Grill is often quoted as bringing modern fuel injection technology to the old fashioned carburetor system. Chargrilling technology hasn’t changed in over 20 years so we brought it into the 21st Century with innovative commercial gas grill technology you won’t find anywhere else in the world. We’ve even brought together the best of British industry. The steel for the gas grills comes from Soham, the cast iron from Dudley, the ceramics from Sheffield and the grills are assembled in St.Neots.
Delivering a better food product at a lower cost price. As a Chef, if you could upgrade to a proven industrial chargrill used by Michelin starred and famous chefs, but with new technology, delivering better taste and texture food from the Synergy Grill patented atomising system, that’s cool to cook over all day, fast, and there was no fat tray to clean daily, you’d see the effect on your customers and staff. As a proprietor, if you could cut gas bills by half, your Chefs could use a chargrill that doesn’t need to be on all day, reducing the cost per plate and you didn’t have to responsibly dispose of fatty waste… you’d be excited as well..! Synergy - that's Why.

Our Synergy Grill van and demo team have visited every corner of Britain – from North to South and East to West. If you can’t make it to our demo kitchen in Cambridgeshire, we’d be delighted to bring our Synergy SG630 demonstration unit to you. We can bring everything you need for a demonstration, all you need is a power socket.
Customers that use the Synergy Grill tell us they love it and couldn’t be without it. Almost everyone that has tried one of our gas grills has bought one, it really is unique. We guarantee the Synergy Grill is not like anything you have ever experienced before. Get in touch and discover it for yourself.
We’ve been lucky to secure a building with a commercial kitchen and the facilities to offer you a true Synergy Grill cooking experience. We work with a butcher who supplies fresh, local produce for you to try. Alternatively you can bring products from your own kitchen so you can compare the difference when cooking on the Synergy Grill compared to conventional gas grills and griddles.
Clients are amazed how quickly the Synergy Grill cooks the food, the sharp branding, and how moist and succulent the food is, but most importantly, how much better it tastes. You really have to cook on a Synergy Grill to realise how different food can be!
Due to the growth of the Company, we recently moved our sales office to larger premises, next door to our factory. This give the team easy access to our test units, trial new developments, discuss any customer requirements and modifications direct with our engineers.
Along with sales you’ll also find our purchasing and accounts team in the new office along with our superb demo kitchen. We’re now perfectly located to meet clients and showcase the benefits of our Synergy Grills.
The Synergy Grill range has been designed, sourced and invented in the UK by Active Food Systems Ltd, and is constructed using parts made and sourced from selected British companies. All the gas grills are hand-made in our factory in Cambridgeshire by our highly qualified engineering team. Because we manufacture in our own factory using only UK sourced components, it means our delivery lead time is short and our parts are ex stock.
We have good relationships with our supply partners which allow us to make modifications, if you would like a modification to your Synergy Grill, griddle or accessory please let us know, working in unison with our UK partners we can look at this in more detail and where possible make the changes to suit your needs. A recent example was when we were asked to develop a gas grill for a Japanese Restaurant chain in Scotland at short notice, due to the success we now have a specific Teppanyaki grill included in our range. Anything is possible from the initial idea, to provision of drawings, manufacture and supply, depending what the modification is, it may only take an additional week or two to complete.
Our service team are based in our factory in Cambridgeshire and here to assist with any technical queries. We have a 24 hour service line so there’s always someone to help even when the office is closed. If our service team are unable to help, we have fully trained service engineer partners covering the whole of the UK who are able to come to you, even at short notice.
