The shortlist for the 2021 Supplier Awards organised by The Caterer has been revealed, recognising excellence and innovation in food, drink, and equipment products within the hospitality sector.


The judging, which took place at Westminster Kingsway College, and at The Caterer 's offices in London, saw the food and drink products tested by industry chefs and consultants alongside three senior lecturers at the college, and equipment debated and discussed at length by industry specialists from across all sectors of hospitality.


The results of the Supplier Awards will be announced at a Facebook Live awards ceremony in December
