Food Awards product judging date change

Food Awards product judging date change

Lockdown for England, recently announced by the Government, has impacted on the product judging arrangements for the popular FMT Food Industry Awards, which were due to take place at the Regional Food Academy test kitchens later in November.

Harper Adams Regional Food Academy has confirmed that the test kitchens will temporarily close during the lockdown period.

New dates for product judging have already been booked for later in January 2021 and in the circumstances the product nomination deadline has also been extended to 11th January 2021. With a new deadline available, organisers confirm that additional product nominations are still welcome and that all those who have already nominated products have been informed about the new delivery dates.

“There are some great categories for the meat industry and it is really excellent to see so many businesses participating.”

Commenting on the news, lead organiser for the Food Industry Awards, Sharon Yandell said: “We have a record level of entries and we are set for a truly fantastic ceremony next year when winners are announced. The initiative goes from strength to strength.

“Of course this is disappointing and frustrating. However in considering new dates we have decided not to clash with the build up to Christmas in December, a very busy time for the industry, so have moved product judging into January. This still leaves plenty of time for administration prior to the ceremony scheduled for May, when all the results will be announced.
