The Commercial Kitchen exhibition has once again sponsored the Catering Insight Awards.

Joining the rapidly growing list of returning sponsors, as well as a raft of new backers, the UK catering equipment industry’s only dedicated trade show will be supporting the Light Equipment supplier innovation award at this year’s gala Catering Insight Awards ceremony.

This honour will reward a manufacturer who has created an innovative piece or range of light equipment within the last 12 months which provides a step change for the industry.

Last year, Commercial Kitchen sponsored the supplier sustainability category but this year it has switched its backing. According to Chris Brazier, group event director, Commercial Kitchen: “As all nominees in all categories are relevant to the show as visitors or exhibitors we would look to swap categories year on year to make the most of the opportunity.

“The light equipment category is another major category and we are proud to sponsor it.”

He added: “Last year’s ceremony was an incredible celebration of the commercial kitchen industry and a great networking opportunity.

“The Commercial Kitchen table hosted some really great friends that are among the who’s who of the catering equipment industry, many of which were nominated, and indeed won awards.”

Brazier emphasised: “As the only trade show completely dedicated to the commercial kitchen industry we enjoy aligning ourselves with nominees and winners from within the industry we are proud to be part of.

“It’s an opportunity too good to turn down and something that we really enjoy.”

Light equipment is one of 15 categories which will be contested on 30 November at the stunning Underglobe, underneath Shakespeare’s Globe theatre in the heart of Central London.
