The Ney awards were established in 1958 and the Hill awards in 1958 by the Secretary of the Navy and IFSEA to improve and recognize quality food service in the Navy and Marine Corps. IFSEA is a food service industry trade association whose members include executive chefs, operators, dietitians, consultants, managers and owners of catering firms, restaurants, hotels, and clubs.

The Ney and Hill awards recognize overall food service excellence by evaluating key areas in customer service, restauranteurship, cleanliness and management. An independent team that reviewed food preparation, management, administration, equipment safety, sanitation, plastic waste, and disposal evaluated each category. The evaluation teams were made up of senior Navy and Marine Corps mess management specialists and representatives from IFSEA.
