Foodservice Cateys 2017 shortlist announced

The shortlist has been revealed for the Foodservice Cateys 2017 awards.

Now in its fifth year, the Foodservice Cateys was launched in 2013 as a sister event to the prestigious Cateys and the sector-specific Hotel Cateys.

Designed to recognise foodservice employees across the UK, the peer-group awards reward those individuals and teams that work diligently to make sure their business delivers an exceptional service every day.

More than 70 judges, selected for their expertise and industry knowledge, met at London's Dorchester hotel last week for two days to draw up our shortlist.

The ultimate winners will remain a closely guarded secret until they are announced at a glittering event on 13 October at London's Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.
