Catering Insight Awards 2015 winners announced

The winners of the 2015 Catering Insight Awards were revealed last night at a star-studded ceremony at the exclusive Hurlingham Club in London.

More than 200 senior executives from the UK catering equipment industry were out in force to find out the recipients of the 14 awards that were presented to honour excellence in both the supplier and distributor side of the industry.

Guests were treated to a networking drinks reception under the observatory roof of the Hurlingham Club followed by a three-course meal ahead of the awards, while Robert Fox, close-up magician to the stars, kept the tables entertained and bamboozled in equal measure with his repertoire of tricks.

The Catering Insight Awards were supported by Blue Seal, Commercial Kitchen, DC Products, Falcon Foodservice Equipment, First Choice Group, Hobart, Hotelympia, Jestic and Rational. Senior management from each company were called up to the stage to present the award for their sponsored category.

There were five shortlisted finalists in each category, with the winner decided by a closed electronic vote that took place among senior executives ahead of the ceremony. To ensure transparency, suppliers were only eligible to vote for distributor categories, and distributors could only vote on supplier categories. The end result was that the winners of each category were decided exclusively by the industry.
