New U Dine Awards launched

Written by: Edward Waddell
On the 20th January, the new U Dine Awards will be launched at an online seminar on sustainability for university caterers.

These new awards have been organised by MIDAS (Menu Innovation & Development Awards) in collaboration with University Hospitality Seminars (UHS). Award categories include sustainability, innovation, street food and cafe concepts.

David McKown, director of UHS, commented: “This initiative is unique since it allows for university caterers to network and learn from a range of industry specialists and then submit their entry in one of the categorises.”

The seminar will be chaired by Keith Warren, chief executive from the FSA. Other speakers include:

  • David Mulcahy, food innovation & sustainability director of schools & universities at Sodexo
  • Karl Pendlebury, knowledge exchange manager at the AHDB
  • John Feeney, culinary and innovation director Europe & Africa at Griffith Foods

The awards will be presented at a networking event and dinner to be held on 16 June. Winners will embark on a European Food Study Tour. For further information email: [email protected]
