We are happy and proud to announce that wi-Q's hospitality order management solution, wi-Q Connect has won The Caterer Supplier Awards 2021 in Innovation Technology category.
The Caterer Supplier Awards aims to honour suppliers of food, drink and equipment to the hospitality industry. It aims to recognise the manufacturers, suppliers and producers of the most creative and innovative food, drink and equipment products that have kept and will continue to keep hospitality alive.
The winners of The Caterer's Supplier Awards 2021 were announced on the 15th December 2021 in a Facebook Live event by The Caterer's managing editor Lisa Jenkins.
The award showcase first-class producers and suppliers from across the country and overseas. Jenkins said: "We had hundreds of fantastic entries this year and it gives us great pleasure to share these results.
"The team at The Caterer have spoken to so many businesses this year who have told us how supportive their suppliers have been – going the extra mile to ensure their sites stay open, extending credit, finding solutions to shortages and stockpiling equipment for those emergency situations – all examples of how the suppliers in this industry have stepped up.
"All the suppliers on the shortlist and our winners today have supported the NHS, the homeless and those in desperate need of food, drink, and cooking facilities throughout the past 20 months."
Judge Adam Bateman, culinary director at the Grand hotel in Birmingham, said: "It's my third year of being involved with The Caterer's Supplier Awards, and I can't wait to return next year. It's a vital part of seeing new and innovative products from a broad range of suppliers across our industry and, as always, there were some really stand-out products."
Drinks specialist Neil Phillips, also known as the Wine Tipster, added: "I always look forward to the judging of The Caterer's Supplier Awards, as I really enjoy working with the other judges, who bring such a range of skills, experience and passion. The high quality of product development and innovation shown by the suppliers in each of the categories is so inspiring and communicates such a positive message for our industry."
