Carford Group’s managing director, Nick Oryino, has been awarded a Doctorate of Foodservice by NAFEM, the North American Association of Foodservice Manufacturers.
Oryino, who is also the current serving chair of CESA, was awarded a doctorate at the recent NAFEM show in Florida.
Tom Campion, NAFEM president, said the association was grateful for the contribution Oryino and his fellow Doctorate recipients had made to the hospitality industry. “We are pleased to recognise their accomplishments,” he commented.
NAFEM’s Doctorate of Foodservice programme recognises elected leaders of major foodservice industry associations for their commitment and dedication to their respective organisations and the industry at large.
Oryino, who is eligible for CESA chair as Dorset-based distributor Carford has a manufacturing operation, took over the role in November.
He said one of his objectives during his tenure would be to build closer links with other organisations in the foodservice industry.
“Manufacturers, distributors and consultants can best help foodservice operators meet the critical challenges facing our industry by collaborating and working together on the synergies,” he said.
Already CESA, CEDA and the FCSI are working on a series of initiatives covering areas as diverse as training, sustainability, waste management and apprenticeships.
