Cash & Carry Management magazine, in association with the Craft Guild of Chefs, has launched the CCM Chefs Own-Brand Awards to determine the best foodservice own-brand products in the market.
Cash & Carry Management’s managing director Martin Lovell commented: “We know the care and passion that goes into creating a successful own-brand. It doesn’t just happen by magic, and development chefs and supply partners work hard to bring exceptional products of excellent quality and great value to market – products that are driven by customer need and provide innovation in many categories.
“These awards will give cash & carries and delivered wholesalers whose own-brand products hit the mark the recognition they deserve, with endorsement from the Craft Guild of Chefs – the leading chefs’ association in the UK – who will conduct the judging in blind tastings.”
Each product will be tested on taste, texture, aroma, appearance and value for money. To add further value to the awards, feedback will be given by the chefs on each item tested.
Entries are open for products in all food & drink categories at a cost of £75 per product, with one free for every 10 products entered. Entries can be made online here: https://cashandcarrymanagement.co.uk/ccm-chefs-own-brand-awards/ or you can download and print a form here: https://cashandcarrymanagement.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/CandCM-Foodservice-entry-form.pdf
The closing date for entries is Wednesday 4 April 2018. The products must be delivered direct to Westminster Kingsway College, London. Delivery details will be provided when entries have closed, and judging will take place in April 2018.
The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards lunch on Thursday 24 May 2018.
