Official launch of The Chef’s Book
BWG Foodservice is exhibiting at CATEX for the first time this year. The company is using the show to launch its new food service book, The Chef’s Book. The new publication showcases the full range of products and information that you need to run a food business including interviews, photos, information on suppliers and calories.
As Ireland’s largest foodservice and hospitality show, CATEX provides BWG Foodservice with an essential platform to promote The Chef’s Book directly to industry buyers.
According to Ricky O’Brien, Commercial Manager, BWG Foodservice: “We are delighted to launch The Chef’s Book here at CATEX. A huge body of work has gone into the production of this book and we are extremely proud of the finished product, which includes wonderful photography and vital information for those working in the foodservice industry. The Chef’s Book also highlights the volume of Irish suppliers we work with which is hugely important to us to make sure the food that BWG Foodservice delivers to our customers is the best quality, home grown fare on the market. The book will also be the first of its kind to highlight calories as a useful reference guide. We hope that it is a very useful tool for those in the industry.”
