The Caterer Middle East Awards 2023

The Caterer Middle East Awards are like no other awards in the region in that the emphasis is on celebrating the dedicated professionals who make the culinary scene in the Middle East amongst the most exciting in the world, rather than simply crowning the leading establishments in the market.

From the kitchen hero who cleans the floor at the end of the night, to the restaurateur who launches the latest hot spot, the Caterer Middle East Awards are for everyone working in the Middle East’s vibrant F&B sector.
