Women In Meat Industry Awards dinner set for sell out
With six weeks to go, the much anticipated Women In Meat Industry Awards dinner is set for another sell out occasion in London on the evening of Friday 15th November.
Organised by Meat Management magazine, the annual Awards celebrate the extensive contribution women make to the UK meat industry and presentations are made across 10 categories including the Meat Businesswoman of the Year Award.
The initiative is also supported by a range of industry partners. New this year is category partner Moguntia Food Ingredients UK Ltd., who will partner the Meat Businesswoman Award – Retailing category. Colin Hitch, commercial director of Moguntia spoke to Meat Management about why the company has become involved:
“This is a great initiative and we want to fully support and highlight the brilliant job women do in our industry. We are a business built on customer focus, technical excellence, innovation and culinary flair. We operate from a world class manufacturing base in the UK, coupled with group manufacturing in four countries. Women play a very significant part in all this, whether they are customers, our account managers, technologists or manufacturing operatives, so we are excited about being involved.
“The Awards also challenge any stereotypical view about the meat and food industry being dominated by men. There will be many great role models recognised on Awards night and the occasion, plus the subsequent publicity, also highlights what great career opportunities exist in the industry for female talent. We are delighted to participate.”
ABP is another new supporter for 2019 partnering with the Meat Businesswoman Award – Foodservice category. Jo Benson, Marketing Director of ABP commented: “We’re delighted to support this years Women In Meat Industry Awards celebrating the brilliant women who make such an important contribution right across the sector.
