The UK's leading food, drink and equipment products will be unveiled next month at The Caterer's Product Excellence Awards (PEAs) in partnership with Delaware North.
The winners will be announced at a lunchtime event on Friday 6 December at the London Stadium, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, home to West Ham Football Club.
Delaware North's executive head chef Gary Foakes will be delivering a sumptuous three-course lunch.
General manager for Delaware North at the London Stadium, said: “I am responsible for delivering food and beverage to over a million visitors per year at various events including West Ham United games, MLB baseball events, concerts and athletics as well as meetings and events. In order to deliver these events, and exceed customer expectations it is imperative that we have first class products to incorporate into our food and beverage offerings, the Product Excellence Awards recognise the fantastic achievements of first class producers and suppliers of products from all sectors and we are proud to be associated with these awards.”
Lisa Jenkins, products and suppliers’ editor for The Caterer, added: "We had hundreds of fantastic entries this year and tons of innovation. It gives us great pleasure to share these results and to recognise the creativity and technological advances, particularly in the equipment sector, which has seen slower, more cautious development in 2019."
"Whatever type of business you operate in you rely on your suppliers to excite and engage your customers. Consumers of food and drink continually expect new entertainment, quick service and on-trend flavour sensations."
“The date of the PEAs also allows us an opportunity to make it an extra-special festive celebration, with Westfield Stratford on the doorstop and the fantastic facilities and surroundings of the London Stadium."
The awards celebration takes place from 11.45am on Friday 6 December. Tickets to join the celebration and mix with the best of the best suppliers and manufacturers are available at £160 per person or £1,500 per table of 10, and can be purchased here.
The PEAs awards event provides an excellent opportunity for suppliers and manufacturers of all the shortlisted products to network with the judges, operators and purchasers and for winners to celebrate their success.
The overall winners and coverage from the awards ceremony will appear in a PEAs supplement in the 20 December issue of The Caterer.
