Kitchen & Equipment Awards winners too close to call on deadline day

The winners vote for Catering Insight’s and Foodservice Equipment Journal’s Kitchen & Equipment Awards is on a knife edge on deadline day.

Voting closes today at 5pm, but with hundreds of votes already submitted, currently there are still several categories either tied or separated by just one vote. So don’t miss your chance to cast your vote – it could make all the difference.

Senior industry executives have been invited to choose the winners of this year’s special digital event, with distributors, suppliers and operators voting on their two opposite categories (not on their own). A limited number of representatives from each major UK catering equipment sector company received the voting form, to ensure fairness.
