Cateys 2016 shortlist announced

The Caterer has announced the shortlist for the 33rd annual Catey Awards. Affectionately known as the Oscars of the hospitality industry, the Cateys recognise the sector's strongest performers, latest emerging brands and highest flyers as determined by the industry itself.

More than 140 judges, chosen on account of their expertise and industry knowledge, and past success as Catey winners themselves, met at London's Dorchester hotel last week for three days of lively debate to discuss the nominees and produce our shortlist.

The winners will be revealed at a glittering event on 5 July at London's Grosvenor House, A JW Marriott hotel.
