Lexington Catering’s Let’s Energise Vitalicious Juices were named the ‘Product of the Year’ at the 2015 Health & Vitality Honours lunch, with Innocent taking second place. Held at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Thursday 29th January, the awards celebrate and honour the achievements of elite foodservice companies working behind-the-scenes to improve the nation’s health and wellbeing.
The Vitalicious Juices, part of Lexington’s multi-award winning ‘Let’s Energise’ range are fresh vegetable, fruit & herb juices which contain at least 2.5 of your five a day. The innovative juices are freshly blitzed to order and have a shelf life of just one day – ensuring customers get the freshest, tastiest and most nutritious product.
The 2015 Health & Vitality Honours – hosted by corporate sustainability champions Footprint – saw some of the biggest names in the foodservice and hospitality industries receive awards for their exceptional contribution to the promotion and practise of health-conscious business. Lexington were praised for their innovative and nutritious juices which have proved a big hit with both customers and clients alike.
Rob Kirby, Chef Director at Lexington says ‘What a fantastic result to win Product of the Year! I knew, when I first saw it across the pond in NYC that it would hit London by storm, and I’m really proud that we were the first to lead the way and put it into our market place.’
Charles Miers, Managing Director of Footprint congratulated the winners saying this year’s honours were a ‘showcase’ of the excellent work so many companies, and individuals, are doing to drive forward nutrition and wellbeing across the industry
The Health & Vitality Honours is a platform for businesses to showcase best practice and help create a greater transparency on the social issues of health and nutrition throughout the foodservice supply chain. It aims to promote the manufacture of healthier products, the implementation of healthy living programmes in foodservice and awareness amongst consumers of the industry’s work and achievements.
Lexington won the 2014 Healthy Hospitality Honour for its ‘Let’s Energise’ range which provides sustained energy levels throughout the day with balanced nutrition across great tasting ‘grab and go’, salad bars and hospitality menus.
