CH&CO gets double recognition in the Foodservice Cateys shortlist

CH&CO is excited to be in the running for two awards at this year’s Foodservice Cateys – the CSER Award and Education Caterer of the Year.

CH&CO is serious about its long-term approach to operating in a socially responsible and sustainable way. Last year it became the largest and most diverse contract caterer to be awarded the top-level three-star Food Made Good rating by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. This commitment to do the right thing for the planet and future generations is part of the CH&CO culture; from chefs and on-site teams serving customers to those working in the offices supporting its operations and clients.

On hearing the news that CH&CO has been shortlisted for a Foodservice Catey CSER Award, Emma Hill‍, Head of Food, Health, Safety and Environment said: “We all have a part to play in meeting our commitment to looking after the environment. We’ve made strong progress and we’re well on our way to meeting our 2020 goals. Getting the top-level 3-star SRA Food Made Good rating was a great achievement and it’s fantastic that our industry peers have also recognised our work by shortlisting us for a Foodservice Catey!”

The inspiring work of the CH&CO Independent team headed up by Managing Director, Deborah Homshaw‍, has secured a place in the Education of the Year shortlist. The team has spent the last 12 months focusing on what Deborah describes as, ‘It’s not school food, it’s just great food!’ and it’s really paid off.

Deborah explains: “Our Good Food Works initiative launched just eight months ago, and it’s really raised the bar in the independent schools network, helping to inspire an interest in and love of great food in pupils across the country. I’ve no doubt that this and the sheer hard work of all the team has helped gain a place in this year’s Foodservice Cateys shortlist. We’re incredibly excited and proud to be recognised in this way.”

The winner of this year’s Foodservice Cateys will be announced at ceremony on 11 October at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, London. Huge congratulations to our shortlisted teams and the very best of luck!
