Foodservice Cateys 2013 shortlist revealed

Foodservice Cateys 2013 shortlist revealed

The countdown to Caterer and Hotelkeeper's inaugural Foodservice Catey awards has begun and we are pleased to announce a shortlist.

The Foodservice Cateys were launched as an extension to the well-respected Cateys, which this year celebrated its 30th anniversary, and following the triumphant success of the Hotel Cateys, now in their seventh year.

Aimed at celebrating foodservice employees across the UK, the Foodservice Cateys have been created to recognise and reward those individuals and teams that work tirelessly to make sure their business delivers an exceptional service day in, day out, as determined by those best placed to decide: the industry.

More than 90 judges, selected for their expertise and industry knowledge, met at London's Dorchester hotel last week for two days of lively debate and discussion to whittle down the nominees to our shortlist of runners up.

The ultimate winners remain a closely guarded secret until they are announced at a glittering event on 11 October at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.
