Judging to start on M&PPA competition

Judging will be under way later this month for the second Meat & Poultry Processing Awards.

Aiming to recognise and reward good practice across the processing sector, the awards have seen strong entries from across all sectors of the UK. Ed Bedington, editor of MTJ, which organises the contest, said: "This is our second year of running these awards and they continue to go from strength to strength.

"The number of entries is up considerably on last year, and we've got some superb contenders this year. I'm looking forward to the judging process and seeing what some of the sector has achieved."

The M&PPA Awards were set up to offer recognition to a sector that is often overlooked when it comes to awards, Bedington added. "We don't often get the chance to celebrate everything good about the processing sector, so we're delighted these awards give us the chance to do so."

The awards recognise companies and individuals in seven categories:


Environmental Initiative of the Year


Export Initiative of the Year


Plant Manager of the Year


Processing Business of the Year


Small Processing Business of the Year


Supply Chain Initiative of the Year


Young Processor of the Year


The awards are supported by the British Meat Processors Association, the Association of Independent Meat Suppliers, the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers Federation, the British Poultry Council and the Provision Trade Federation. Sponsors include Bizerba, Eblex, the Meat Training Council and Reiser UK.


Winners will be announced at the prestigious awards ceremony on Monday, 28 March, 2011, at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.
