Birmingham ICC’s in-house caterer, Amadeus, was awarded the Health and Nutrition award at the prestigious Cateys 2018 which celebrates excellence across the foodservice and catering industry.

The award was presented to Craig Hancox, Catering General Manager of the ICC, Simon Hellier, Executive Chef at the ICC and Wayne Hall, Catering Operations Manager, in recognition of the team’s achievements for its pioneering work with education charity, Food for the Brain to create a nutritional conference menu, Food Focus.

Kevin Watson, Managing Director at Amadeus, said:  “Winning this accolade is testament to the team’s hard work and commitment to innovation within the area of conference and events catering.”

The ICC became the first conference centre in the UK to gain Food for the Brain accreditation in early 2017 and has gained the accreditation for a second consecutive year in 2018.

“So far the menu has attracted custom from many clients, in particular – but not limited to – organisations linked to the health care sector who are motivated by the health message associated with the menu. Due to the success at the ICC, Amadeus is now working with other conferencing venues within its portfolio to achieve the accreditation,” Kevin added.
