For 56 years, the International Foodservice Manufacturers Association (IFMA) has sponsored the Gold and Silver Plate Awards program.  The awards continue to pay tribute to excellence by recognizing the most outstanding and innovative talents in nine segments of foodservice operations.

Each year, a distinguished jury of trade press editors and previous award winners weighs the merits of hundreds of candidates before selecting the executives who are honored with the Silver Plate Award.  From among these nine, one is chosen by secret ballot to receive the industry's most coveted recognition, the IFMA Gold Plate.

All past winners of IFMA's Gold and Silver Plate Awards are members of the International Gold and Silver Plate Society, a group that is dedicated tot he advancement of the foodservice industry.


Recognizing the ever-changing needs of the foodservice industry, and being mindful of the industry's responsibilities to its consuming public, the Society brings together the expertise of the Gold and Silver Plate Award recipients and utilizes their knowledge to:

  • Act as a catalyst for the development and implementation of industry programs and projects, with emphasis on the need for improved education, training and manpower recruitment.
  • Provide the Speakers Forum for the exchange of ideas.
  • Give recognition to outstanding industry achievement.
  • Encourage the highest degree of professionalism and ethical standards within the industry.
