Adding to the list of returning Catering Insight Awards sponsors, combi oven specialist Rational is lending its backing to the event for the third consecutive year.

A sponsor from the very first event, Rational is once again supporting the Distributor of the Year – Nationwide category, a headline honour. This special award recognises a major distributor which has completed mammoth commercial kitchen projects to a high standard, whilst still offering a personalised, sterling service.

Simon Lohse, MD of Rational UK commented “We are excited to announce our sponsorship of the Distributor of the Year – Nationwide category, for the third year in a row.”
