Education Caterer of the Year

Taylor Shaw was named the winner of the prestigious Education Caterer of the Year Award at the 2022 FoodService Cateys.

This award recognises catering businesses that deliver fresh innovation and value to schools. Taylor Shaw impressed the judges with its ethos of never applying a 'one size fits all' approach, recognising that no two schools or pupils are the same.

What the Judges Said

"Enjoyed the diverse range of offers for all ranges, recognising different needs. The technology usage was very positive, as was the focus on older children and free school meals. Really liked the special diets that have been made available to those in need."
