Alan Cruite the new Chair of IFSA, General Manager of Trinity Purchasing Ireland, part of the Avendra Group, an affiliate of Aramark, comments: "In 2021, we organised CATEX in record time – in just 12 weeks – and I’m incredibly proud of my colleagues in IFSA for stepping up and offering a platform and event for our industry to come together during an incredibly difficult time. The supportive and tremendous feedback from the event cemented just how special CATEX is to our industry.
It’s long been recognised as the must-attend event for foodservice and hospitality, and we’re confident that CATEX 2023 will deliver incredible value to both exhibitors and visitors as we move forward.”
