Judging set to start on processing awards

Entries are now in for the UK’s leading awards for meat and poultry processors, and judges will soon be getting down to the tough business of picking the finalists and winners.

The Meat & Poultry Processing Awards, organised by Meat Trades Journal, are now entering their third year and continue to go from strength to strength.
The only awards of their kind to focus on the processing industry, they aim to recognise the excellence and best practice that exists throughout the sector.
Ed Bedington, editor of MTJ, said: “There are some superb companies competing for titles across the seven categories and I expect the judging to be extremely tough. The UK meat industry is a world-class sector and the processors set standards for the rest of the world to follow. It’s great for us at MTJ to be able to highlight and reward that success.”
Once again, the 2012 awards will offer the opportunity for processing firms both big and small to enter seven categories:
• Environmental Initiative of the Year
• Export Initiative of the Year
• Plant Manager of the Year
• Young Processor of the Year
• Supply Chain Initiative of the Year
• Small Processor of the Year
• Processor of the Year
The 2012 awards are again being supported by all the major industry bodies — The Association of Independent Meat Suppliers, the British Poultry Council, the British Meat Processors Association, the International Meat Trade Association, the Provision Trade Federation and the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers.
This year’s awards are also being supported by a number of organisations, including Eblex, the Meat Training Council, the CDO Group, Bizerba and Foodex, the organiser of the UK’s leading meat-processing event. Entertainment on the awards night is being sponsored by Systems Integration.
