Bestway Wholesale this week won an award for its Essentially Catering Reduced Salt & Sugar Baked Beans at the prestigious Chefs Choice Awards.
The accolade came in the Vegetables category at the awards, held at the Haymarket Hotel in London to celebrate the very best foodservice products.
The ceremony also saw Highly Commended awarded to both Essentially Catering Premium Back Bacon in the Lamb & Pork category, and Essentially Catering Premium Madagascan Vanilla Cheesecake in the Cheesecakes category.
Tony Holmes, Bestway Wholesale’s sales director for foodservice and retail, said: “Our success at the Chefs Choice Awards is testament to the work we’ve done in expanding our exclusive Essentially Catering range, offering products tailored to the needs of our catering and foodservice customers, delivering great value with no compromise on quality.”
The award is the second accolade for the beans, which was also named Best Ambient Catering Product at the Wholesale Quality Food Awards in October.
Holmes added, “Baked beans are an absolute staple of the catering sector, and we’re delighted that the industry recognises our success in developing a product that allows caterers to meet increasing customer expectations for healthier products, without any compromise on taste or quality.”
