Finalists revealed for Meat & Poultry Processing Awards
The judging is complete and the finalists are selected for next year’s Meat & Poultry Processing Awards.
The competition, which will see the winners revealed at a prestigious evening of celebration in Manchester, aims to recognise and reward best practice within the processing sector.
Ed Bedington, editor of MTJ, which organises the awards, said: "The judging has now taken place and it was a challenge for our judges to pick out our finalists. There were some first-rate entries into the event and it was great to see some of the superb work that is going on within the trade.
"We’ve had a rough year over 2013 so it’s going to be great to start the New Year with some real success stories, and I’m looking forward to announcing our winners on the night."
The awards are sponsored by Anglia Business Solutions, Eblex, Multivac, the Meat Training Council and Reiser. Winners will be announced at a black tie dinner at the Deansgate Hotel in Manchester on 19 February and after-dinner entertainment, in the form of a casino, is supported by Systems Integration.
