" With many years operating in the in UK foodservice sectors I know
recognition & awards for manufacturers is a great way of advertising your
products and standing out from your competitors. In Retail a Quality Food
Award is used to build customer awareness & create status; foodservice
suppliers deserve an equal status. As Chairman for the Foodservice Quality Food Awards I would encourage all those unsung heroes who manufacture brands &
ingredients for our sector across hotels, restaurants & wholesalers &
contract caterers to enter their product(s) in 2022. Judged by a host of qualified industry experts to be nominated or to win is a great honour and also great
for your PR campaigns."
