On Thursday 7th March, The Grand Hotel in Brighton opened its doors for the 2024 FPA Awards, to celebrate the industry’s finest creativity, innovation and sustainability efforts. Cofresco Foodservice had a lot to celebrate, winning Manufacturer of the Year, as well as taking Runner-Up in the Marketing Campaign category for Waste Less Save More, developed to empower chefs and operators to reduce their kitchen waste, whilst saving budget in the process.

Speaking on the night’s success, Adrian Brown, Managing Director, Cofresco Foodservice said:
