Well, we may have taken our time, but the 10th edition of the Contract Catering Awards was certainly worth the wait! We haven’t gotten together since, believe it or not, November 2019, so it was a joy just to see everyone again – let alone laud those who have been leading the industry through this difficult time.

It really struck home what a caring profession this, with so many of the winners having been pivotal during the pandemic. A big congratulations – and thank you – to all of the winners and nominees.

Also, the attendees. Belts may have been tightened recently (and I’m not just referring to the tux trousers after over two years of underuse), but you generously donated an incredible total of £2,390 to the Mary’s Meals charity on the night. We at H2O Publishing cannot thank you enough for your incredible generosity. See you all again in a year!
