Leading cooking and warewashing equipment manufacturer Hobart has joined the illustrious list of sponsors for Kitchen & Equipment Awards Week, organised by Foodservice Equipment Journal and Catering Insight.
Hobart will be backing the Distributor of the Year – South of the UK category, following its support for the same accolade in four previous editions of the Catering Insight Awards. The category celebrates the achievements of dealers in the southern half of England and across Wales.
All of the digital event’s winners will be announced during the week commencing 30 November, in YouTube presentations premiering on both publications’ YouTube channels.
Tim Bender, sales director at Hobart Equipment Division, commented: “This will be the fifth time we have sponsored the category and it may be the most poignant yet. We couldn’t be prouder to put our name to the awards and although this time around we may be toasting our deserved winners digitally, we can still join together in championing both winners and nominees – those in the South of the UK who are rightly held up as shining examples of resilience and overall excellence. We look forward to Kitchen and Equipment Awards week with great excitement.”
He said the reformatted awards programme offers the perfect opportunity to celebrate industry businesses that are going above and beyond in unprecedented and challenging times.”
Regarding honouring the efforts of the UK catering equipment supply chain in such challenging times, he added: “Again, it’s all about ensuring good news stories and examples of best practice are shared as far and wide as possible. Distributors are integral to the manufacturing operation, and nothing is more important now than partnership and togetherness.”
The shortlist will be announced simultaneously in both publications’ November issues, as well as online, after which we will open the voting to senior executives of operators, distributors and suppliers, ensuring each cannot vote on their own category.
