Cooking and hot holding equipment specialist Alto-Shaam has become a sponsor of the Catering Insight Awards for the first time.
The manufacturer leapt at the chance to back the Distributor of the Year – North of the UK accolade, one of 16 trophies which will be given out during the gala awards night at London’s 8 Northumberland Avenue on 18 November.
Alto-Shaam VP of sales for EMEA, Simon Parke-Davis, said: “As a first time sponsor, Alto-Shaam was proud to support the Distributor of the Year – North of the UK category. We look forward to celebrating both the distributors and suppliers who have proven their resilience and seen success throughout the last 18 months.
“At Alto-Shaam, we are dedicated to providing solutions that advance our customers’ business, and we look forward to recognising the Distributor of the Year – North of the UK who went above and beyond to support their customers.”
And as for the awards night itself, he commented: “It’s important to celebrate and honour the distributors and suppliers who have not only supported customers at the highest level, but those who have risen to the challenges of the past eighteen months and proven that the foodservice industry is strong.
“Not only is our industry strong, but it is innovative and adaptive. Those recognised at the Catering Insight Awards embody this spirit. We can all learn from each other as we work together to advance our industry forward and provide the highest quality service, products and support to our customers.
“We are looking forward to safely celebrating the award winners, and networking with colleagues in the industry.”
