For the second consecutive year, Standex Food Service Equipment’s Managing Director, Steve Loughton, has been appointed to the judging panel for the Footprint Awards.
This year’s awards will recognise innovation in the areas of sustainability and environmental excellence within the food service industry. They will also create a legacy, promoting the vital role of sustainability across the broad church of the industry.
The award categories provide businesses with the opportunity to showcase their values and sustainability initiatives in a genuine environment. Winners of the various award categories will be announced at a dinner held on Thursday 24 May 2012 at the 8 Northumberland venue in West London.
Steve is one of 16 high profile judges drawn from the broad spectrum of the food service industry, all of whom have embraced sustainability in their respective areas of operation.
Steve’s judging credentials include his ongoing commitment to a sustainability agenda at work and home. He has been a member of a Defra sponsored committee, seeking ways to accurately measure industry carbon footprints.
Steve is actively involved with the Catering Equipment Suppliers’ Association (CESA), the European Federation of Catering Equipment Manufacturers (EFCEM) and has gained the Certified Food Service Professional (CFSP) qualification.
Steve said: “It is an honour and a privilege to sit on the judging panel for the 2012 Footprint Awards. Environmental responsibility and sustainability are amongst the most important challenges facing our industry, particularly in the current economic climate. These Awards will help raise the profile of the initiatives being made and encourage further progress within the food service sector.”
