Top of the Class
It was a double celebration for CH&Co Group at last night’s EDUcatering Excellence Awards 2017.
Congratulations to Rachel Willocks of ABsolutely Catering who scooped the Newcomer of the Year Award for the great impact she is having in her new role as Craft Trainer. Having already embedded an online ordering system across eight primary schools in Liverpool, improved engagement with pupils and parents, and increased meal numbers in one school by 17.5%, she’s got a bright future!
And, the Contract Caterer of the Year Awards goes to… The Brookwood Partnership! A fantastic result for the entire team in its 21st anniversary year. Its pioneering approach in the education catering sector, which has seen it make much-needed change to eating in schools by putting fresh food back on the menu and skilled chefs in the kitchen, has received deserved recognition.
The EDUcatering Excellence Awards recognise outstanding individuals and teams that have excelled within the school meals sector. Rachel and the Brookwood team received their awards at a special event on Tuesday 10 October at the Royal Garden Hotel, London.
