Foodservice Cateys 2021 open for entries

The Foodservice Cateys 2021 are open for nominations, with this year's awards set to recognise both resilience and excellence in the sector.

Entries are open now and must be submitted before 30 June. To find out more, go to

The awards will recognise those who have enthused and excelled against the odds and celebrate the businesses that have best supported their clients, colleagues and even competitors in the toughest of years.

This year judges will be looking for evidence of innovation and creativity, to reward those that have gone the extra mile in a year where we have all needed inspiration and tenacity.

The Foodservice Cateys will take place on 8 October at Park Plaza Westminster, where the industry will once again have the opportunity to celebrate together.

The Caterer editor James Stagg said: "We can't wait to bring the foodservice sector together again and celebrate the tenacity and determination that has been evident in the past year.

"We are also conscious that as hospitality returns to something approaching full speed, finding the time to complete entries will be tricky, so we've simplified the entry process so that everyone has the opportunity to put forward their teams for praise, while ensuring each entrant will be judged with the same rigour as the previous years.

"So if you've implemented some exceptional new technology to make ordering efficient, have a chef that has kept team engagement going through thick and thin, or want to celebrate a rising star in the ranks, we want to hear from you."
