CESA announces 2018 Orders of Merit

The Ritz executive chef John Williams and Bespoke Hotels co-founder Robin Sheppard were among the latest winners of the Foodservice Industry Order of Merit awards.

The awards were announced at the 2018 Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA) conference earlier this month.

Recipients of the honour came from across the hospitality industry spectrum, including trade associations, guilds and charities.

Glenn Roberts, the outgoing chair of CESA, who presented the awards, said: "Without their hard work our industry would be far poorer and weaker. Their contribution and commitment is beyond value and we salute them."

The CESA Conference 2018, in association with Cedabond, ENSE and the FCSI, took place on 14-15 November at the De Vere Cotswold Water Park.
