Tapenade fought off stiff competition to emerge victorious at the prestigious Foodservice Cateys last Friday, taking home the ‘Event Caterer of the Year’ award.
A bespoke caterer with over 19 years’ experience and part of the Eventist Group, Tapenade was one of only three caterers in the country shortlisted in the category, beating Amadeus and Delaware North to snag the coveted accolade.
Tapenade was recognised for its creative food services ranging from upscale private and corporate entertaining to moveable feasts and street food, using a fusion of flavours from countries all over the world.
Widely regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the hospitality industry, the Foodservice Cateys celebrate the exceptional work of contract catering employees across the UK, recognising and rewarding the individuals, teams and businesses shaping the foodservice industry. Winning entries were decided by a panel of judges made up of experts across the foodservice and hospitality industries.
Tim Stevens, Managing Director at Eventist Group comments: “I’m beyond excited that we have won such a prestigious award. The Foodservice Cateys are the pinnacle of our industry and have long been in my sights. For us to have triumphed over such established caterers firmly positions us as the trend setters and market leaders, driven by our creative concepts and exceptional service delivery.”
Tapenade, part of Eventist Group, is a bespoke event caterer and established market leader which provides events tailored to suit individual tastes, exceeding all expectations.
