Finalists in ‘Best Catering Company Covid -19 Response’ category at the London Catering and Venue Awards 2021
We are finalists in the London Catering and Venue Awards 2021, in the category ‘Best Catering Company Covid Response’.
This award is for the catering team that has re-imagined their offering and continued to propel their business forward despite the challenges of the pandemic. We are delighted that our efforts have been recognized in this way, alongside many other fantastic finalists.
Last year, as the reality of Covid hit, we lost six months of work in the space of two weeks. We adapted our business plan accordingly, and would continue this adaptation multiple times over to meet the ever-evolving needs of the market. From fresh produce delivery boxes, to freezer meals, to dine in date boxes to intimate events, through to virtual event catering, there was a constant evolution. We coordinated a number of food drops and donated our time to support the work Refettorio Felix, a homeless charity in West London. We supported and worked with the charity organization NHS Snacks (charity organisation making and delivering healthy snacks to the NHS in the first lockdown).
It certainly hasn’t been easy, and we continue to feel the affects of the virus. However, we believe that the pandemic made us a more malleable as a company, it has exemplified the importance of team work and supporting other small businesses. It’s brought excitement as well as stress, bringing us into a new realm with digital events and giving us the opportunity to cook and host events in new and exciting ways.
We couldn’t have got through without the support from our clients, friends and family.
Thank you SO much for your ongoing support.
Alix & the whole Caiger team.
