Foodservice Categories 

These categories are specific to foodservice and wholesale products available in the UK, and will be judged by a foodservice focused set of judges and criteria. Functionality of packaging only will form part of the judging criteria for these products. 

" With many years operating in the in UK foodservice sectors I know recognition & awards for manufacturers is a great way of advertising your products and standing out from your competitors. In Retail a Quality Food Award is used to build customer awareness & create status; foodservice suppliers deserve an equal status. As Chairman for the Foodservice Quality Food Awards I would encourage all those unsung heroes who manufacture brands & ingredients for our sector across hotels, restaurants & wholesalers & contract caterers to enter their product(s) in 2021. Judged by a host of industry experts to be nominated or to win is a great honour and also great for your PR campaigns."

Stephen Minall, Chair of Foodservice
