Bartlett Mitchell commercial director Sean Valentine and the Ministry of Defence’s head of food service Nigel Shepherd were awarded lifetime achievement awards at last night’s Cost Sector Catering Awards 2016 held at the Hilton London Metropole.

The Craft Guild of Chefs was also recognised with an Industry Contribution Award, a final hoorah to its 50th anniversary celebrations last year, while Myles Bremner, director of the School Food Plan, walked away with the Special Contribution Award.

Other winners on the night included Olive Catering Services for the Contract Catering Award, The Royal British Legion for the Cost Sector Team of the Year Award, and Owen Sidaway, head of prison catering in England and Wales, for the Public Sector Award.

The audience of 750 guests from across the catering industry enjoyed a three course menu, including a starter of salmon three way, a main of oak-smoked guinea fowl breast and a dessert of warm apple and blackberry streusel tart, served entirely gluten-free courtesy of Unilever Food Solutions.

Cost Sector Catering editor David Foad said: “It’s been another terrific evening and an opportunity, once again, to celebrate the work of the unsung heroes of the catering industry.”
