Now in it’s 40th anniversary year, we’re delighted that Working Options in Education is once again partnering with the Quality Food Awards to sponsor the Rising Star award.
This award recognises the food and drink retail industry stars of the future and is open to anyone under the age of 25 who works in any area of the food and drink industry or is studying to enter this field.
So whether the young person in question is working as a chef or in the retail grocery sector, be it in a small convenience store or a large supermarket, or studying food technology, the Rising Star Award wants to recognise those bright sparks who show the passion and drive to succeed in the food and drink industry.
The award is free to enter, nominations are welcome until 14th June and the ceremony takes place on November 22nd.
Here’s what Bea Hill of Mallow and Marsh has to say about the food industry and winning the Rising Star Award last year.
