I am delighted to extend my best wishes for the 11th British Kebab Awards, taking place on 28 February.
Hospitality in all its forms plays a critical role in supporting our economy as well as communities and high streets right across the UK. Kebabs are as much a part of our culture and heritage as fish and chips and curries, reflecting our broad diversity and our nation’s love of food.
I know it has been a very difficult few years, but I am confident that the sector can and will play a leading role in the UK’s recovery, and help us deliver the growth we want to see right across the country.
I hope that this year’s event provides an excellent opportunity to build on collective expertise and passion, and to honour those who continue to work hard within the food industry.
I would like to pay tribute to the excellent British Kebab Awards winners and nominees and wish them, and the entire industry, my warm congratulations and every success for 2023.
