Kitchen & Equipment Awards Week winners to be announced next week

Kitchen & Equipment Awards Week

Kitchen & Equipment Awards Week (Mon 30 Nov – Fri 4 Dec) is nearly upon us – so here is a guide to what to expect next week! 

From Monday, we will be revealing the winners of this year’s special awards programme, which honours the achievements of operators, suppliers and dealers in the UK market.

Every day, several alerts will drop into your inbox at regular intervals, just as each category winner announcement video goes live on our YouTube channel – so you will be the first to see who has won.

Story continues below

These alerts will replace the ordinary news alerts you normally receive for one week only, although you can continue to visit the Foodservice Equipment Journal and Catering Insight websites for breaking industry news.

Hundreds of industry executives voted to choose the victors of the Kitchen & Equipment Awards, and each winner reveal video will indicate the voting pattern too.

On each alert, we will also preview which winner announcement is coming next, recapping the shortlist of the forthcoming category each time.

These awards could not happen without the support of our industry partners and each category announcement will be accompanied by exclusive content from those companies – essential watching for further catering equipment education.

Furthermore, we’ll be regularly posting from our social media accounts all week so you won’t miss a minute of the action.

If you haven’t yet signed up to receive our news alerts, make sure you do so today – go to our homepage and fill in your details in the box within the right-hand column. Or alternatively, please email
