DC Warewashing and Icemaking Systems is proud to be involved with the Catering Insight Awards 2019 in association with the First Choice Group, for the fifth successive year, sponsoring the new category: Distributor of the Year – Corporate Social Responsibility.

As part of the event’s fifth anniversary shake-up, this category is one of three new additions (alongside Distributor of the Year – Business Development and Distributor of the Year – Marketing & Strategy). The accolade will recognise those UK dealers who are outstanding corporate citizens. This could be through their work to be efficient and environmentally aware, or demonstrating excellent health and safety standards, or for those who have thrown their backing behind important charitable initiatives.

The ceremony will be held on Thursday 28 November at the grand Banking Hall in central London.

DC director Bob Wood commented: “Corporate social responsibility is playing an increasing role in all our businesses. When we learnt that Catering Insight was adding this exciting new category, we jumped at the chance to recognise the work of catering equipment distributors in this arena.

“At DC we believe the importance of good corporate social responsibility extends throughout the supply chain and can take many forms: whether that’s supporting individuals by committing to the highest levels of health and safety, promoting environmentally friendly products, going the extra mile to develop employee horizons, raising ethical standards or supporting local community or worthy charities via major fundraising drives. Whatever the approach we can’t wait to reward a very deserving recipient for their work.”He praised the event, saying: “Catering Insight continues to deliver a first-class Awards night. The venue and event in 2018 yet again surpassed expectation and the event gets bigger and better with every passing year.

“As a supplier, we are so fortunate to have distributors throughout the UK who are committed, dedicated and professional. The CI Awards delivers a unique opportunity to focus the spotlight firmly on the achievements of those dealers and distributors who are leading the field in terms of innovation, creativity and high standards of customer service. The event itself goes from strength to strength and we look forward to celebrating through the night with a selection of our industry’s finest.”
