The winners of the inaugural CCM Chefs’ Own-Brand Awards were announced at a prestigious awards lunch at Westminster Kingsway College, London, on 5 June.
Hosted by Cash & Carry Management in partnership with the Craft Guild of Chefs – the leading chefs’ association in the UK – the event celebrated the best foodservice own-brand products available from wholesalers.
The judging was conducted in blind tastings by Andrew Green, director of operations at the Craft Guild of Chefs; Jason Gordon, general manager of Compass Group’s General Medical Council contract; and Matt Owens, pastry chef at The Grove, a five-star hotel in Watford. Between them, the judges have decades of experience of working as a top chef.
The two days of judging were intense, with several of the own-brand products deemed so good that they were awarded a ‘Best of the Best’ accolade.
