Women In Meat Industry Awards nominations see strong response
The Women in Meat Industry Awards 2018 campaign is in full swing, with nominations open until 1st July and industry busy putting forward the names of those that they hope to see recognised.
With the deadline fast approaching, organisers are urging those that know someone who has brilliant skills, masses of enthusiasm and makes a real difference to their industry, to nominate them without delay.
The awards will be presented at a black tie dinner, held on Friday 16th November 2018 at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London. Celebrity chef and businesswoman Lesley Waters will co-host.
The seven voting and nomination categories are:
Meat Businesswomen Award – Foodservice
Meat Businesswoman Award – Retailing
Meat Businesswoman Award – Manufacturing/Processing
Meat Businesswoman Award – Craft Butchery
Meat Businesswoman Award – Trade Body
Meat Businesswoman Award – Wholesaling
The Rising Star Award
In addition, an overall Meat Businesswoman of the Year Award will be presented to one of the winners of the other categories (excluding the Rising Star category), with a panel of respected industry judges discussing all winners and selecting one overall person who has made or is making an exceptional contribution to the UK meat industry.
Women in Meat Industry Awards organiser Emma Cash said: “We are delighted with the response we’ve received so far to this brand new awards initiative. We launched this event after seeing a gap in the market and listening to what sort of events and support the meat industry is looking for. With a disco, celebrity host and excellent venue it is set to be an event to remember.
“With the deadline fast approaching, I would urge anyone who has been planning to nominate an industry friend or colleague to ensure they do so today. Entry is free, simple and certainly worthwhile!”
