The National Association Of Care Catering (NACC) Has Today Launched The NACC Awards 2024

The prestigious awards welcome nominations from across the care catering sector to recognise and celebrate teams and individuals that go above and beyond in their field – from care homes to community services, such as Meals on Wheels and Lunch Clubs

The NACC Awards 2024 are officially open for entries with a deadline Monday 24 June 2024. The judges will be looking for examples of innovation, excellence and dedication that create tangible benefits for residents, clients and colleagues in the following categories:

  • Care Establishment of the Year Award, sponsored by allmanhall
  • Meals on Wheels Award, sponsored by apetito
  • Catering Team of the Year, sponsored by Hobart UK
  • Catering Manager of the Year Award, sponsored by Unilever Food Solutions
  • Our Care Catering Hero Award, sponsored by Bidfood
  • The Bev Puxley Award, sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Cooks

The shortlist will be announced in August, with the winners being honoured later in the year* at a gala awards dinner where the recipients of the Pam Rhodes Outstanding Achievement Award, sponsored by Winterhalter and the National Chairman’s Award will also be revealed, as well as the hotly-contested NACC Region of the Year Award, sponsored by Meiko.

Neel Radia, National Chair of the NACC, comments:
“This is one of the highlights of my year, when we can call upon our members to recognise excellence, innovation and dedication within care catering. We have so many unsung heroes and this is our chance to turn the spotlight on some of them and give them the recognition they deserve.

“For a long time, the social care sector – be that in care homes or in the community – has been undervalued and the NACC is here to change that perception. With today’s inflationary landscape care caterers go to extraordinary lengths to ensure those they care for receive the right nutrition and hydration in an appropriate and enjoyable way that generates a positive impact on both physical and mental wellbeing.

“We very much look forward to coming together with members, colleagues and friends later in the year to celebrate the exceptional achievements within our sector and the teams and individuals that encapsulate the very best of the best. We know these continue to be challenging times for our members, but we urge them to enter the NACC Awards 2024 and ensure the hard work and brilliance of their team members do not go unrecognised.”

Entry to the NACC Awards is open to members of the NACC. For more information about how to become a member visit
