Top food manufacturing news for October - in pictures

By Laurence Gibbons , 30-Oct-2012

A work experience student whose ready meal idea wowed Tesco, food workers allegedly forced to work in slave-like conditions and a food manufacturer forced into administration after losing a key Morrisons contract were just three of the topics in our list of the eight most popular articles published on FoodManufacture.co.uk in October.

Also featured in our photogallery, charting the most popular stories of the month, are: a 2 Sisters' factory closure and a drinks entrepreneur on the brink of achieving US success – despite being rejected by the TV show Dragons’ Den.

We report too, the case of the shocked shopper who found "part of a rodent" in her Tesco sandwich and news that cake maker McCambridge was in exclusive discussions with a potential buyer.

Last, but not least, we include a food manufacturer facing a potential £120,000 fine for allegedly employing illegal workers.
