The shortlist for the National Association of Care Catering Awards 2018 (NACC) has been revealed, which will recognise the teams and individuals across the care catering sector.

The awards celebrate innovation, excellence and the dedication to deliver above and beyond and ensure exceptional service every day.

Across the sector there is an intrinsic desire to create exceptional food and drink experiences that enhance life quality and wellbeing both physically and emotionally. It is right that we take the time to recognise and celebrate this.

“I congratulate all of the finalists. The judges had a difficult job deciding the shortlist from all the brilliant entries, so to get to this stage is a fantastic achievement. I’m looking forward to the NAAC Awards dinner where the winners will be revealed, and we will have the opportunity to honour excellence with colleagues from across the country. I wish everyone the very best of luck!”
