The countdown to the FEJ Awards on June 5 is set to hot up even more tomorrow when the online voting process officially opens.
For the first time ever, industry professionals will have the opportunity to have their say on which operators and suppliers emerge with silverware when the awards ceremony and gala dinner take place next month.
Operators will have the chance to vote on the supplier and distributor categories, while suppliers will be eligible to vote on the operator categories.
“This is a unique opportunity for everyone connected with multi-site foodservice businesses and commercial kitchen suppliers to have their say on which finalists they think deserve to win each category and make their vote count,” said Andrew Seymour, editor of Foodservice Equipment Journal.
“Social media has gone crazy since the finalists were announced last week, so we are now looking forward to letting the industry decide the outcome. There are no better-qualified judges than those that live and breathe the industry firsthand and who understand genuine innovation when they see it. The calibre of finalists in each category is so strong that it is impossible to predict how the industry will vote.”
Tomorrow FEJ will publish dedicated links that industry professionals will be able to click on to cast their vote. The voting form will contain an overview of each finalist and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. All votes will remain strictly confidential.
The complete run-down of shortlisted candidates is available HERE.
The FEJ Awards takes place on Tuesday 5 June, the first evening of the Commercial Kitchen show, at the Hilton Metropole Birmingham.
