Recipe for recognition: Cue the SkipTheDishes Food Industry Award.


The culinary world is as vibrant and dynamic as the women who shape it. In recognition of their contributions, Skip has joined forces with the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) to honour these trailblazers with the SkipTheDishes Food Industry Award. 

The Women’s Executive Network is North America’s premier organization that elevates and applauds professional women in every field imaginable.

Women have been at the forefront of innovation in the foodservice industry, demonstrating resilience, entrepreneurship, and excellence. They are the restaurateurs reimagining dining, the chefs setting new trends, and the entrepreneurs building sustainable, forward-thinking businesses.

Why nominate?

Nominating a woman in the food industry celebrates her success and honours the trail she’s blazed for others. It’s a high-five to her bold vision and relentless grit, showcasing the zest that ambition and hard work bring to the table.
