LACA extends deadline for 2021 Awards for Excellence

28 Jul 2021
The closing date for nominations to the LACA Awards for Excellence has been extended until Wednesday 4 August 2021, giving people more time to get their nominations in.

The LACA Awards acknowledge individuals and teams who continue to make a ‘real difference’ to school food and education catering.

The Education Contract Caterer of the Year will be new to the awards event, while the old Marketing Award has now become Green Menu and Marketing Award. A LACA award is an invaluable promotional tool in any organisation or school's marketing strategy and speaks volumes about its high standards of customer service and care.

Being nominated for a LACA award gives a sense of prestige and honour at a personal level and raised the professional reputation of the organisation or school employing award winners. The awards night will take place on Wednesday 13th October at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

There are award categories include:

  • LACA Apprentice/Trainee of the Year
