There are just two weeks to go to the annual Meat & Poultry Processing Awards and anyone who wants to be in on the action needs to book tickets now.

Attendees get the chance to rub shoulders with the brightest and best in the meat processing industry as they battle to win the top award across nine categories.

One business, chosen from winners of the Retail Processor of the Year, Foodservice Processor of The Year and Small Processing Business of The Year, gets to claim the overall crown of Meat & Poultry Processor of the Year.

Thursday 2 March is the red letter day in the meat industry’s diary. The venue is The Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel. The event is sponsored by AHDB Exports, Reiser, Multivac, Interfood, Appetite Learning and Foodex.

Comic Alfie Moore, veteran of ITV, Sky News, Radio 4, Radio 5 Live and the Edinburgh Fringe, will be providing the entertainment on the night, which will include a sumptuous, slap-up dinner. After that guests can adjourn to the bar, where they can network and try their luck at roulette or blackjack.

Coverage of the awards will appear on and in the March issue of Meat Trades Journal magazine.

“This event is one of the only chances for retailers and their suppliers to come together in one room and celebrate excellence in meat processing,” said Meat Trades Journal editor Rod Addy. “You would be crazy to miss it. It’s always a lively evening and everyone has a fantastic time, so claim your seats while you still can!”
