CH&Co success recognised in ‘Health & Vitality Honours’

CH&Co has earned recognition in two Health & Vitality Honours that were presented by Foodservice Footprint in a ceremony at the Long Room of Lords Cricket Ground on 29 January. The awards form part of Foodservice Footprint’s mission to recognise responsible business and sustainability practices in the foodservice supply chain.

Its Chefs’ Nutrition Training Programme was a main factor in helping CH&Co pick up the ‘Healthy Hospitality Honours’ prize. This recognised that CH&Co committed to invest £2m in training over five years - with a particular focus on nutrition training for 220 head chefs. In the first year, the chefs reformulated their most popular main courses and effectively removed over 78million calories; 3,000 kg of fat; almost 400kg of salt from their customers’ consumption.

Caroline Fry, CEO of CH&Co (Business & Industry) was also runner up in the ‘Special Achievement Honours’ Category - which recognises an individual’s commitment to the industry. For more than two decades she has led Charlton House - the largest business within the CH&Co group - which serves 80 clients throughout the UK and currently turns over £32 million annually. Her team feeds 60,000 employees every day and Caroline is recognised as a true champion of healthy eating in the foodservice sector.

Caroline says: “Thank you to Foodservice Footprint for this recognition of CH&Co’s efforts. It is our ambition to educate customers about healthy eating in an interesting, enjoyable way; to introduce highly nutritional elements into the workplace diet; and to empower customers to make informed healthy eating choices. This success will encourage us to make even greater commitments.”
