Search is on for recession-busting champions

With doom and gloom rarely out of the headlines, a leading UK food and drink publisher is hoping to lift some of those clouds by celebrating the good work going on across the sector.

The Great British Bounce Back is being launched by William Reed Business Media, publisher of Meat Trades Journal, at its Foodex show in Birmingham.

The campaign aims to highlight that, despite the tough times, fantastic work is being done across the industry to drive business forward, and it will showcase best practice across the food and drink industry with recognition for those going the extra mile to invest in its future.
The search is now on for the #GBBounceBack champion. Which organisations really are championing the recovery? Who is investing in people through training and development to get the industry back on its feet? Who is flying the flag to plug our exports, committing to the environment to help put the wind back in our sails or thinking big to rebuild our stature? Which companies are the industry’s great innovators and who is turning it all around with technology? Who really is taking it one stage further and most deserves to be crowned #GBBounceBack Champion?
Any company involved in UK food manufacturing, processing and logistics can enter, whether they are a primary producer, processor or supplier. So whether you’re a butcher that is investing in apprenticeships, a processor using anaerobic digestion to lower your carbon footprint or a manufacturer among the “early adopters” who are committing to state-of-the art technology, the Great British Bounce Back initiative gives your organisation the chance to shine.

To enter just make the case for your company as #GBBounceBack champ at <>  in no more than 50 characters (including spaces) and your entry could be showcased at Foodex 2012.
The shortlisted competition entries will be announced in the week commencing 19 March and displayed at Foodex 2012, which runs from 25-27 March at the NEC in Birmingham.

Each Foodex visitor will be able to vote (once) for the entry they think demonstrates the greatest investment in the future of the food and drink industry.
