CESA welcomes top guests to Patron's Lunch 2015

The Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA) has held its annual Patron's Lunch for 2015, with some of the catering equipment industry's most prominent names in attendance.

Hosted by the Rt Hon the Lord Trefgarne, patron of CESA, at the House of Lords on 9 July, the guests were served lunch and heard an address from former CESA chair Gene Schellenberg (chair from 1987-89), on the subject of how times have changed within the business.

Guests included past CESA chairs and CESA council members, along with industry award winners, representatives of catering equipment supplier Cedabond, buying consortium ENSE and the Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI), as well as guests from industry media and other organisations.
