The winner of the Business Services Award is apetito.
The recipient of this award is the leading food producer for the health and social care sector, providing nutritious and sustainable meals for people at home or in care.
apetito offers a wide range of meals to suit every taste and dietary need and aims to make a real difference to the lives of elderly and vulnerable people in care.
The food producer uses only quality ingredients in its meals, which are prepped from scratch by its chefs and nutritionists, and then frozen within one hour to lock in nutrition, freshness and flavour.
apetito has twice won The Queen’s Award for Enterprise, most recently for its range of texture-modified meals for people with swallowing difficulties, and takes great pride in its pioneering history of innovation within the food and drinks industry.
Andy Lowe, care homes division manager, said: “We’re delighted, it’s a great honour to win the award. We never thought we would win it – we just applied to be a part of this great event for the care industry. And so to win it is just out of this world, I’m delighted.”
