Food Awards report a big increase in product entries
Product entries for the annual Food Management Today magazine Awards are up nearly 50% over 2019/20 this year, to the great delight of the organisers.
Sharon Yandell, the lead Awards organiser, commented: “These Awards are truly unique in their character and reach right across the market, and it is very flattering that so many companies want to participate and increasingly so.
“We are experiencing a great deal of growing interest in the FMT Awards and to see the quality and range of nominated products is amazing. As usual many of the major retailers and manufacturers are involved and I know the judging days later this month are going to be fantastic.”
“From a meat industry perspective the competition will be tough and very competitive as the bar is raised higher and higher.”
Group editor of both Food Management Today magazine and Meat Management magazine Pamela Brook said: “To be honest it was difficult to gauge what the reaction would be this year with such challenging and different circumstances affecting the various markets that make up the wider food industry.
“Needless to say we are delighted with the result and I know the judges are going to have a very interesting few days reviewing when assessing the entries. From a meat industry perspective the competition will be tough and very competitive as the bar is raised higher and higher. A big thank you goes to everyone who has participated, it really is a brilliant response.”
The FMT Food Industry Awards results will be revealed at the annual Awards ceremony in 2021. More details about how to book and participate will be publicised soon.
Sharon Yandell added: “We were delighted to welcome Michel Roux Jr. to host our ceremony earlier this year and as we anticipated he was hugely popular. We are yet to announce our host for the 2021 so the message is – watch this space!”
In addition to product judging, voting in other Award categories has also been strong this year as FMT readers make it known who has provided them with great service, as well as recognising the outstanding businesses and people who make the market what it is today.
