Companies Rewarded For Healthy Best Practice

In First-Ever Foodservice ‘Health & Vitality Honours’


I firmly believe that the foodservice industry has an enormous responsibility for its constituents’ health, in both the cost and profit sectors; whether it’s restaurant dining on the high street or contract catering within the workplace.  Foodservice is a sector that has the power to influence a healthy culture and drive the well-being agenda, and I’m delighted that the Health & Vitality Honours ‘Roll of Honour’ contains catering organisations as well as major suppliers and wholesalers which service the industry.
