Heinz searching for foodservice heroes

The nation’s food heroes are being recognised as part of a new award searching for foodservice businesses and individuals who have helped their community during the Covid-19 crisis.

Organised by Heinz and hospitality networking association, Arena, the award aims to identify initiatives from across the foodservice supply chain that has gone above and beyond to make a difference.

And with so many foodservice wholesalers stepping up to feed their communities driving lockdown, there are plenty of stories within the wholesale sector that deserve to be considered.

Nominations can be made on the Heinz Food Heroes page, with a star-studded panel – including 2019 MasterChef finalist Leo Kattou and Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown – selecting the winners.

There are two categories to enter, with awards for Most Heroic Individual and Most Heroic Team picking out those top performers in the past year.

Here at Heinz, we have long been in awe of the outstanding work of people across the food industry,” said Jojo de Noronha, Kraft Heinz Northern Europe President.

“It’s something our founder Henry J Heinz recognised since the very beginning and making a positive contribution to the world through food, is something that still drives the Heinz business today.

“This philosophy is why we started the Heinz Food Heroes awards; to recognise the dedication of individuals working hard and going above and beyond to make a difference in their communities.”

Nominations for the Heinz Food Heroes awards close on Friday 18 September, so log and add your voice now.
