Warewasher and ice maker supplier DC Products has become the latest leading firm to sign up as a sponsor of the inaugural Catering Insight Awards.
The famous brand is supporting the Distributor of the Year – Rest of the UK award, which will honour exceptional service and performance of a dealer based in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland.
The nominees for this accolade are:
ABM Catering for Leisure
CSR (Catering Supplies and Repairs)
JD Catering Supplies
Shine Food Machinery
Bob Wood, DC Products’ director, is wholeheartedly backing the awards, commenting: “We think they are a great way to recognise the hard work, dedication and contribution that distributors make to the industry as a whole.
“As a distributor-only supplier these awards are particularly pertinent for us. Catering Insight has, in a very short time, become a vital source of industry news and information for all distributors and suppliers alike. It therefore seems only fitting that Catering Insight should be the ones to host an event to recognise the achievements and innovation of distributors and suppliers, and DC are very proud to be a part of the first CI Awards.”
He detailed that his company is sponsoring this award as: “When we discovered the Rest of UK category was available we jumped at the opportunity. For DC, the category represents so many accomplished distributors in such burgeoning areas of the country that we wanted to be part of recognising their contribution and celebrating their success.”
This is one of 14 accolades which will be won at the gala event on 9 December at the prestigious Hurlingham Club, London.
