Entrepreneurial Success For Contract Caterer The Pantry


Entrepreneurial family business The Pantry have been named ‘Growing Business of the Year: £10-£15m Turnover’ at the 2023 Growing Business Awards.


Their triumph marks the second successive year The Pantry have walked away as winners at the event, having been named ‘Family Business of the Year’ in 2022.


The 26th annual Growing Business Awards - in partnership with Real Deals - are the most credible and highly-valued recognition of exceptional growing businesses. This year’s awards celebrated the strength, vision, and resilience of fast-growing SMEs – so these are the accolades that UK SMEs really wanted to win!


The Growing Business Awards have 27 categories which celebrate UK business achievements over the last 12 months in areas including HR, diversity and customer loyalty, disruption, technology, and innovation to name a few.


As the only Contract Caterer nominated in their category, The Pantry faced some exceptionally-stiff competition from around the country – and their triumph signs off a year in which they’ve also been named ‘Caterer of the Year’ by both LACA and Public Sector Catering, and ‘Most Ambitious Business Leader’ by LDC and The Times.


Managing Director Luke Consiglio said: “What a remarkable way to cap off a remarkable year! We’ve had so much recognition for the work our amazing staff have done this year, but to round it out with an award at the same ceremony where we won our very first award 12 months ago – it just brings it full circle."


"I want to thank every member of The Pantry Family that’s made 2023 our best year yet – and I can’t wait to see what we can do in 2024 to top it!”
