The annual Catersource ACE Awards are the Oscars of the catering industry.
MONTREAL, March 6, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Bernard & Fils Traiteur, a company that has catered more than a century of memorable buffets and cocktails parties, has extended its reputation beyond our borders as one of four finalists for the ACE Awards in Las Vegas, selected from over 46 countries. This Achievement in Catering Excellence (ACE) award is one of the most prestigious recognitions in the catering industry, and Bernard & Fils Traiteur is the first Quebec company to place among the finalists. For the company, this amounts to nothing less than an Oscar nomination!
The ACE Awards were presented on February 28 at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. And at the same time, Bernard & Fils was also nominated for a Catie Award from the International Caterers Association for their black pearls, a Quebec goat cheese hors d'oeuvre with explosive flavour. It won over an international jury of connoisseurs. In 2011, Bernard & Fils also received the Estim award from the Montreal Chamber of Commerce as the best service company.
