Always out to show much-needed support to the UK’s most important catering events and talent showcases, Row & Sons has announced its backing of the 2017 National Pizza Awards. Set to take place on October 3rd this year, this annual event brings together the most talented and ambitious chefs and caterers from all over the country, to compete for the coveted prize of the UK’s very best pizza.
The event will take place at the Islington Metal Works in London and is open to trade participants only. Entry is available online via www.nationalpizzaawards.co.uk, where competitors are asked to detail their signature pizza recipe and method. Sixteen finalists will be invited to travel to the finals in October, after which an award presentation with drink selection will take place, in the company of specially invited trade guests from all over the country.
Row & Sons is proud to show its support to a competition that nurtures both talent and healthy competition among UK chefs and caterers at all levels.
As well as being a principal sponsor and supporter of the awards ceremony, Row & Sons will be supplying pizza boards to the event. Each of the finalists at the awards show will take home with them a complimentary pizza board, engraved with the National Pizza Awards logo as a memento and fond reminder of their participation and progress in this years’ Awards. These boards are a part of our Roweca range and as well as being highly practical for both pizza preparation and serving, they are also extremely hygienic, resistant to high temperature heat and durable to knives and other cutting utensils.
“The National Pizza Awards is an annual competition, open to the trade only, featuring chefs across Italian restaurants, quick service restaurants, pubs, casual dining restaurants and hotels. Competitors range from owners, chefs, group exec chefs, development chefs and food development personnel. The competition aims to inspire and deliver innovation, quality and taste. The competition heats are held on the morning and afternoon of 3rd October, culminating in an evening awards presentation and drinks reception, with specially invited trade guests.” – National Pizza Awards

Committed to Quality
“Row & Sons were established in 1880 as a manufacturer of Butchers Blocks in the South of England. The skills acquired during those early years have been further developed and passed down from generation to generation. Not only have the skills grown, but the product range too, now including food cutting boards, chopping and serving boards. Working with both wood and plastic, our craftsmen understand the possibilities that our materials hold, always happy to work with our customer to produce new and innovative ideas. Row & Sons introduced the colour coded system into the UK market in the 1970’s which is still used today, to identify the correct coloured board for food produce. Innovation, design and creativity are integral part of everyday life at Row & Sons.” – Row & Sons
