The LACA Awards for Excellence

The shortlist for the LACA Awards for Excellence 2017 has been revealed.

Every year the LACA awards acknowledge individuals and teams who continue to make a real difference in education catering. Good management, strong performances and high achievements deserve to be recognised at any time. Acknowledgement of effort is particularly important to not only reward but sustain motivation.

The industry continues to be driven by the commitment and dedication of its workforce. Maintaining that enthusiasm, building on performance and driving greater success are ongoing challenges and the introduction of Universal Infant Free School Meals and the new food standards implemented as part of the School Food Plan have meant some testing times for education caterers.

Being nominated and selected for a LACA award not only gives a sense of prestige and honour at a personal level but simultaneously raises the professional reputation of the organisation or school employing award winners. A LACA award is an invaluable promotional tool in any organisation or school’s marketing armoury and speaks volumes about its high standards of customer service and care.

NEW FOR 2017

We are pleased to announce that LACA are introducing the LACA Unsung Hero Award this  year. This new award is looking to celebrate those unsung heroes within the school catering industry and we would encourage anyone who has seen amazing dedication, or who has witnessed someone go above and beyond in their role, to send in their nominations for the new Unsung Hero Award. The full criteria for this new award is on page 3 of the brochure.

Please read all of the Award criteria carefully as some amendments have been made especially on the supporting information required for each category. LACA extends its thanks to all the award sponsors for their much appreciated support and for their commitment to recognising the exceptional endeavours of all of our nominees.
