Entries now open for Chefs’ Choice awards

The foodservice industry is invited to take part in a new competition designed to recognise the best of the sector. 

The Chefs’ Choice awards, created by William Reed Business Media, are open to all foodservice suppliers from wholesalers to manufacturers to restaurants, and are designed to shine a spotlight on the top quality work being done by operators.

Designed to heighten market awareness and provide a promotional platform for an operator, there is an opportunity for entrants to earn a winner, highly rated or finalist rating, allowing them to use the event’s branding on packaging and in marketing. Entrants also have the opportunity to gain independent validation and recognition of success in market-leading brands such as The Grocer, Restaurant, The Morning Advertiser and Food Manufacture

There are 27 categories for businesses to enter (see below) covering all areas of the foodservice industry. The winners will be announced in central London on Tuesday 7 March 2017 at the Haymarket Hotel.

For more information on entering Chefs’ Choice, log on here or email Rebecca George on Rebecca.George@wrbm.com or call on 01293 610422.
