Amongst the mounting reports of backhanders and biased judging within the industry’s award shows, this week has marked an important shift in the British-Asian hospitality award sector.

The Asian Restaurant Owners Network (ARON), renowned for their proactive and honest platform, are upholding their commitment to #PressForProgress until equality for all is achieved.

Rehan Uddin, founder of ARON and South Devon restaurant owner, has been working tirelessly with his team to address these awards, which often fail to recognise or support inspirational business woman.

After repeatedly tackling the lack of equality online and during public events, very little has changed, so ARON have decided to do something about it – creating the “only 100% free and 100% fair” award show in this sector – ARON Awards 2019.

ARON Awards - Behind The Scenes with Short Stop VideoWith ‘ARON Brand Ambassador’ Sarah Ali Choudhury and ‘Miss Dorset & Hampshire 2018’ Steph Wyatt storming the latest promo video – ARON is calling on businesses to nominate women in an “industry that lacks female representation”.

Sarah Ali Choudhury praised the ARON Awards for encouraging businesses to support equality and empowerment; “we have so many incredibly talented and inspiring individuals in this industry – with a truly equal platform, it’s time for the women’s takeover!”
