Jestic continues new talent crusade with Catering Insight Awards


Jestic Foodservice Equipment is continuing its support of new dealers by once again sponsoring the Emerging Distributor of the Year at the Catering Insight Awards 2018, in association with Atosa.

One of the original sponsors of the annual gala night, Jestic is continuing in its backing of distributors at the beginning of their industry journey, for a category that recognises dealers for their achievements in the first 5 years of establishment. Sales director Steve Morris commented: “We’re truly delighted to be supporting the Catering Insight Awards 2018, by providing sponsorship of the Emerging Distributor of the Year category for the fourth consecutive year.

“This particular category celebrates those dealers and distributors who have worked tirelessly to develop their presence in the industry, in doing so, demonstrating outstanding performance and extemporary customer service.”

This year’s black tie ceremony will take place at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in Holborn, Central London, on Thursday 29 November.

Morris is anticipating another successful night: “For 2018, a move to the trendy Bloomsbury Ballroom in London is sure to see the event develop into an even greater spectacle than previous ceremonies. We are most looking forward to celebrating with hundreds of esteemed industry colleagues, partners and suppliers at the Catering Insight Awards 2018. ”

And he was already pleased with last year’s celebrations, adding: “The 2017 Catering Insight Awards lived up to all expectations with a wonderful evening, great food and excellent entertainment, all topped off with a memorable after party in a top central London venue.

“The Catering Insight Awards are, for many, the highlight of the foodservice calendar and, thanks to the November ceremony, a way to celebrate the completion of a successful year in business. The ceremony itself offers a great means of showcasing the achievements of dealers, distributors, suppliers and manufacturers from across the industry and following the success of previous events, is sure to be a fantastic evening.”
