Kraft Heinz and industry networking organisation Arena are looking to celebrate young talent in the foodservice industry with the Hospitality Heroes competition.
The industry-led award for those “growing a better world” will recognise 57 workers under 30 who go above and beyond while giving back to the industry in their spare time.
Claire Traynor, Head of Foodservice UK, Kraft Heinz, said: “We created 57 Hospitality Heroes to celebrate the exceptional ‘extracurricular’ contributions being made by young people across the foodservice and hospitality industry.
“The initiative marks Kraft Heinz 150th anniversary and aligns perfectly with our vision – to be the best food company, growing a better world. We believe ‘growing a better world’ means working to improve our planet, its people and the communities where we work and live.”
Those working within foodservice and hospitality can nominate others in the sector across all businesses including food manufacturing, wholesalers, contract caterers, pub, hotel restaurant operators, PR, recruitment and catering equipment.
Lorraine Wood, director, Arena said: “At Arena we want to encourage younger members to enjoy the benefits of networking, so it makes perfect sense to join forces with Kraft Heinz on this exciting initiative.
“If you have someone in your business or in the industry you know who has gone ‘the extra mile’ outside of their day to day role we want to hear from you.”
