Pâtisserie specialist Tipiak is sponsoring the Afternoon Tea of the Year Award at the Garden Centre Catering Awards 2023.
The awards are run by Garden Centre Catering magazine and are open to all garden centres and nurseries in the UK with a food and drink offering.
Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé, Tipiak’s international development project manager, said: “Tipiak specialises in supplying frozen, authentic sweet and savoury pâtisserie to the hospitality sector in the UK.
“Our exquisitely French ‘thaw and serve’ macarons, petits fours, pop éclairs and canapés are the ideal ingredients for afternoon tea. They simply need thawing before serving – helping garden centres, farm shops, hotels and other venues to easily offer delicious French pâtisserie.
“Afternoon tea has become a popular occasion, as a celebration or for customers wanting to treat themselves. As such, we know that many garden centres offer a super afternoon tea selection.
“We are excited that Tipiak is the sponsor of the Afternoon Tea of the Year Award and look forward to being involved in the event.”
As well as Afternoon Tea of the Year, the awards are also looking to reward the Independent Garden Centre Caterer of the Year and the Garden Centre Catering Group of the Year. A Sustainability Award is also available.
“This is the chance for garden centre catering operators to put themselves forward to get well-deserved recognition,” said Bryony Reid, editor of Garden Centre Catering. “Each category has a chance to acknowledge the effort from catering groups as well as caterers either new to the industry or not as well-known.”
The Garden Centre Catering Awards are free to enter for both independent garden centres and group garden centres.

Nominations close on 1st September 2023.
