Lexington Catering big winner at inaugural Foodservice Cateys

Lexington Catering was the big winner at tonight's inaugural Foodservice Cateys, picking up a hat trick of awards at a glittering awards dinner at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.

The caterer was named B&I Caterer of the Year, while its chef director Rob Kirby picked up the Chef of the Year title and Chloe Green was named Regional Manager of the Year.

But Lexington wasn't the only company to win big at the first ever Foodservice Cateys. Sodexo celebrated taking home the CSR award while its craft and food development director David Mulcahy was recognised for his tireless work in the industry with the Outstanding Contribution Award.

Harbour & Jones, Elior UK and CH&Co were also double award winners at tonight's event attended by more than 500 guests from the foodservice and wider hospitality industry.

Comedian Josh Widdicombe was on-hand to provide the entertainment and Caterer and Hotelkeeper's chosen charities to support were Hospitality Action and Springboard.
