Today (March 13th) we reveal those shortlisted in the following categories: Education Award; Sustainability Award; Unsung Hero Award; Armed Services Award; and the Care Award.
The Public Sector Catering Awards are open to teams, individuals and organisations, including contract caterers operating in a public sector environment, and the winners will be announced at a gala dinner on April 13th at the Hilton London Metropole.
There are 17 award categories with shortlists; while a Lifetime Achievement Award is chosen by a small industry panel and also presented. This is a tribute to a person or organisation, and recognises dedication, service and significant achievement in catering over a long period.
