Recognising an Outstanding Contribution to the Foodservice Industry
The award recognises up-and-coming talent in all aspects of contract catering, from chefs to marketers and from butlers to business development staff. The awards are open to talented team members aged 35 and under who truly have what it takes to make a real difference in the industry, whether that’s cooking, serving or driving a business forward.
They could be in operations, sales, training, marketing, personnel or any sector of our business. They are the person who has gone that extra mile, either within their present role or to get to where they are now.
The ACE Robyns Award was created by the ACE committee in memory of Robyn Jones OBE, founder of CH&Co, who sadly died in September 2015. Robyn was known for her tireless work in the mentoring, training and development of young talent.
