Meat Management Editor Emily Ansell Elfer says: “I think it’s fair to say that our awards are seen as the one to win in the UK meat industry. This position is certainly reflected by the amount and range of product entries, the biggest awards ceremony in the market and the type of companies and organisations that participate.

“Following an excellent reaction to last year’s music and afterparty, we will again include dancing to a live band and we look forward to bringing the industry together again for a night of celebration.”
