David Foskett picks up outstanding contribution accolade at the CESA conference

David Foskett has won the CESA outstanding service to the catering equipment industry 2013 award for his commitment to hospitality training and education.

The head of the London school of hospitality and tourism at the University of West London was handed the award by Caterer and Hotelkeeper group editor Mark Lewis at the CESA conference held at the Savill Court Hotel, Windsor.

A member of the Academy of Culinary Arts, the Craft Guild of Chefs and a fellow of the Institute of Hospitality, Foskett sits on many committees advising on hospitality training and education, and has carried out research into trends and growth in catering and hospitality.

His awards include an MBE, the ‘Chevalier dans l'ordre du Merite Agricole' from the President of France, an outstanding achievement from the Craft Guild of Chefs, and a Catey for education and training.

CESA vice chair Simon Frost described Foskett as "a friend of the industry" who has had an impact on "hundreds of thousands" of people in the foodservice sector. "It is an impressive legacy," he added.
