Women In Meat Awards celebrates International Women’s Day
Organisers of the annual Women In Meat Industry Awards, YPL Exhibitions & Events, have confirmed the ongoing support of Ladies In Pigs and Ladies In Beef, for this year’s initiative, which commences in June.
The annual ceremony, where ten category Awards are presented, following a five star black tie dinner, will once again take place at Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington and this year the date is set for 15th November. Together with the all important ‘after party’ winners and guests will celebrate the wealth of female talent across the meat industry that will be recognised during a unique evening.
Event organiser Emma Cash said: “it seems appropriate that we can make this announcement now on International Women’s Day and it is great news that both these women’s organisations see the value of our Women In Meat Industry Awards and support the initiative.
“Last year voting and nominations surpassed all expectations and we already have tables booked for the dinner this November. It going to be another great year for women in the meat business I’m sure.”

Michelle Ingerfield of Meat Management magazine said: “There is enormous interest in the Women In Meat Awards and I am sure we will have a full compliment of partners confirmed very soon.”
Jilly Greed of Ladies In Beef commented: “We are very pleased to remain involved with the Women In Meat Industry Awards. I am sure our members will be delighted to nominate worthy candidates and of course we have a number of dynamic members driving their own retail and butchery businesses.
“It really is brilliant that this forum had such a successful launch last year and we wish it continued success.”
