Elior celebrates Women of the Year

Elior UK recently toasted CEO Catherine Roe’s final year as chair of Women of the Year by supplying afternoon tea boxes to almost 400 virtual awards attendees. Roe, who took up the chair position in 2018, addressed the audience of the 2020 Women of the Year awards virtually, owing to current lockdown restrictions.

Despite the challenges, the Elior Foodsmiths team produced 378 afternoon tea boxes so the awards ‘lunch’ could still go ahead. They created a bespoke afternoon tea box for guests including Baroness Floella Benjamin DBE, Edith Bowman and Dame Esther Rantzen DBE.

Roe said: “It has been a privilege to chair this fantastic organisation that seeks out and honours exceptional women in every walk of life, some of whom will never have had the recognition for their achievements otherwise.”

Women of the Year aims to celebrate the achievements of women of all backgrounds. This year, honours were given to women from fields including health, technology and music.
