Foodservice Cateys 2016 shortlist revealed

The shortlist has been unveiled for the Foodservice Cateys 2016 awards.

Now in its fourth year, the Foodservice Cateys was launched as a sister event to the prestigious Cateys and highly successful Hotel Cateys.

The peer-group awards is aimed at recognising foodservice employees across the UK, and rewarding those individuals and teams that work diligently to make sure their business delivers an exceptional service every day, as determined by those best placed to decide. More than 70 judges, selected for their expertise and industry knowledge, met at London's Dorchester hotel last week for two days of dynamic debate and discussion to draw up our shortlist.

The ultimate winners will remain a closely guarded secret until they are announced at a glittering event on 14 October at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.
