As final preparations are made for the Food Manufacturing Excellence Awards – the Oscars of the food and drink manufacturing sector – here’s your opportunity to meet the judging panel.

The awards – which will take place on the evening of Thursday November 21 at the Park Lane Hilton, London – are judged by a panel of independent experts, with wide-ranging experience in every area of the food and drink industry.

There are still places left if you want to attend on the big night​ to be among the first to learn who has won top honours in the world of food and drink manufacturing. To book your place, telephone Rebecca George on 01293 610422 or email: rebecca.george@wrbm.com.

Meanwhile, our judging panel was led by business guru Paul Wilkinson. In addition to chairing the FMEAs and Food Manufacture’s​ Business Leaders Forum held in London every January, Wilkinson is chairman of the National Skills Academy (NSA) and chairman of Thorntons.
