Our Awards

At Blue Apple, we don’t set out for awards and plaudits but it’s always nice to have our approach to catering recognised! We’re proud to have picked up a number of awards, both as a business and individually. Here’s a few of our recent wins!

We were delighted to be named as Employer of the Year by Investors in People at their annual awards ceremony in November 2019, following lots of great work behind the scenes to make Blue Apple a fantastic place to work. We picked up the Standard (+250) award for companies with over 250 staff and were congratulated on the way our company values are implemented across the business.

In addition to these accreditations, in 2018 we were delighted to be named the Cost Sector Catering Magazine’s Contract Caterer of the Year at their annual awards dinner, in the same year we were included in The London Stock Exchange 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain and our employees voted us in The Caterer Magazine Best Places to Work in Hospitality, one of only two catering businesses to be listed in the country!

The proof is in the pudding!
