The 30th Public Catering Awards took place at the London Hilton Metropole, celebrating teams and individuals who have provided exceptional and outstanding work in catering.
The Public Sector Catering Awards, which aim to celebrate individuals and teams that work within the industry, crowned its winners last week. It was another successful night for Compass Group UK & Ireland - who scooped up 2 awards.
The winners for Compass Group were:
- Catering Manager of the Year Award - Rosa Losa, Medirest
- Team of the Year Award - ESS
This is Rosa Losa’s second recent award nomination. As Retail Catering Manager at the Royal Surrey Hospital, Rosa has been instrumental in Medirest and the Royal Surrey Hospital being the first hospital to be awarded the NHS double exemplar site status for catering and cleaning.
Following on from ESS’ three awards at the Contract Catering Awards, they have been awarded Team of the Year. This was in recognition of the support the company provided to its Defence and Government Services clients during the mourning period and state funeral for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
ESS is a market leader in the Defence, Energy and Government Services sectors, supporting the wellbeing of thousands of customers who carry out strategically important work, often in challenging conditions.
Russell Blake, Managing Director - Healthcare at Compass Group UK & Ireland, commented: “Our people are at the centre of everything we do and for Rosa to be recognised for this prestigious award is a true testament to her hard work”.
Mark Webster, Managing Director – Compass One, commented: “I’m incredibly proud of the support our teams provided to our Defence and Government clients following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II last September. Our people worked around the clock to deliver for our customers and it’s wonderful to see their efforts recognised through this award.”
At the end of the night, Nick Vadis, the Culinary Director of Compass Group UK & Ireland, paid tribute to the chefs who had skilfully crafted four exceptional courses for the nominees and their guests.
