The late Dr Frances Chandler, who died in February, had also been named a Member of the BritishEmpire (MBE) for her work in agriculture and sustainable development.

Her niece Stephanie Barnett accepted the award. Following the ceremony, Sir Assad said he felt “happy” and “honoured”, as he thanked the Chefette staff and his family for their support. (TG)
