As you may have noticed from our cover, entries are now open for the annual FSM Awards. It may seem like we have only just closed the eighth edition – with Elior having led the charge with three wins and five runners-up – but the attention to detail required to select them means that we have already begun the search for our next crop of worthy winners.
And the good news is that the 2019 awards will be bigger than ever before with the addition of a brand-new category. Inspired by the regular item you can find on page 43, the Rising Star Award will seek to champion an employee under the age of 30 who works from anywhere across the contract catering sector.
We really want to encourage the leaders of the future, so if you know someone who fits the bill (or, indeed, someone who is worthy of any of the other regular categories), you have until 4th September to nominate them. Go to www.fsmawards.co.uk and, who knows, they could be emulating Elior’s 2018 inductees come November.
