These nominees will now gather with industry colleagues across public sector and workplace catering on April 25th at the Hilton London Metropole to find out who the winners will be.
There are 18 judged categories, and Cost Sector Catering brought together 18 industry experts to help whittle down the 139 entries to a shortlist.
Awards night also includes two further honours that aim to recognise long-term achievement – the Public Sector Lifetime Achievement Award and the Contract Catering Lifetime Achievement Award.
These last two awards are presented to individuals or organisations who, during a notable career in the industry, have demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities, drive, ideas and inﬂuence that organisers believe make them worthy winners.
One final category, the Armed Services Award, has still to be judged, with the shortlist to be announced on April 1st
