Aramark Wins Best Event Caterer At Industry Awards
Aramark took home the award for Best Event Caterer at the 10th annual Event Industry Awards held recently in Citywest Hotel, Dublin. The company beat off stiff competition from industry peers to win the coveted award.
Attended by hundreds of industry professionals, the annual Event Industry Awards acknowledges the teams, companies and clients who raise the bar for events in Ireland as well as recognising the outstanding people within the industry. Submissions were assessed by an international panel of judges under the co-ordination of Dublin Institute of Technology.
Aramark received the award for Best Event Caterer for its work with Croke Park. The award recognises the hard work, dedication, and innovation of catering teams. Croke Park appointed Aramark, the global specialist in food services, to operate its catering services in 2014. Since then, the team led by General Manager Richard Li and Executive Chef Ruairi Boyce, have consistently demonstrated their creative flair, innovation, and ability to produce simply delicious food for every occasion.
Commenting on the win Shane Flynn, Managing Director Food Services Aramark Ireland said “We are delighted to have won this coveted award and to be recognised as an industry leader, yet again, by our industry peers. The talent of the Aramark team, coupled with the energy of the unique venue, has driven our reputation for unparalleled standards in quality and customer care. I’m hugely proud of every single member of our team for making every event a success, going above and beyond to deliver exceptional experiences from start to finish.”
Ruairi Boyce, Executive Chef, Croke Park Stadium said “From bowl food to designing highly bespoke fine dining, our catering team work passionately to provide an exceptional catering experience. I’m incredibly proud of our team of world class event professionals and for the dedication they all give in delivering the high standards our clients and customers expect.

Richard Li, General Manager, Catering at Croke Park Stadium Aramark concluded “We’re very proud of this honour. No one can achieve this level of excellence without the commitment and skills of a dedicated team, and I am very fortunate to work with so many talented people in Croke Park.
