Catering and hospitality supplier BWG Foodservice has announced its sponsorship of the Best Chef award at the upcoming Irish Restaurant Awards.
The 12th annual Irish Restaurant Awards, run by The Restaurants Association of Ireland, showcase the talent that Ireland’s hospitality industry has to offer by acknowledging performers in the sector. The awards are a five month long process consisting of online public nominations, judging panels, mystery guest inspections and regional and national events.
The awards consist of a roadshow of four regional events, with each county winner then going forward to the All-Ireland stage which takes place on Monday 18th of May 2020 in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road.
BWG Foodservice has been a sponsor since 2016, sponsoring various categories including Best Newcomer, Best Hotel and Guesthouse Restaurant and Best Kids Size Meal throughout the years.
Ricky O’Brien, Head of BWG Foodservice, commented: “Chefs are the very talented rock stars of the foodservice industry and we’re delighted to be the proud sponsor of the prestigious Best Chef category for these Awards that recognise excellence within the Irish hospitality industry. At BWG Foodservice, we are delighted to have the opportunity to publicly pay homage to their craft. It is rare you get the opportunity to make a statement as public as we believe sponsoring the Best Chef award does. This accolade is one coveted by every chef in the industry and to have this chance to stand with them as a whole and honour the standout chef is, truly, humbling.
“One of our driving motivations is to provide chefs with the best of raw materials and ingredients so that they weave their magic and create spectacular dishes for their customers. At BWG Foodservice we understand all that goes into this and, through this sponsorship, we can show that support in a public and meaningful way.
“We work with chefs every day and they’re at the heart of the industry and we are delighted to be a part of these awards which celebrate and acknowledge their year round hard work.”
To celebrate sponsoring the award, BWG Foodservice is offering new customers €50 off their first online order.
