Hundreds of food and drink industry professionals gathered at the Park Lane Hilton Hotel to celebrate the very best in UK food and drink manufacturing, last month (Thursday November 20).

Watch our video to get a flavour of the Bond-themed evening, complete with the movie’s most notorious villain Jaws, the songs of Shirley Bassey and a casino. On the night, 007 escaped Jaws unscathed. But was everyone so lucky? Watch the video to find out.

Meanwhile, the night was expertly hosted by TV star Mark Durden-Smith.

Watch as Dawn Meats’s UK operations director Isla Roebuck takes to the stage – not once, but twice – to pick-up the trophies for Environmental Initiative of the Year and Food Manufacturing Company of the Year and then hear him reveal what the prize meant for the Irish firm’s employees.

Patrick Coveney

The boss of Greencore Patrick Coveney was crowned Personality of the year for making a key contribution to the UK food and drink manufacturing industry over the past 12 months.

Judges awarded him the gong for raising Greencore’s fortunes and navigating a change in strategy within its US business – moving to one based on ‘food-to-go’.

Catch a snapshot of how he felt on being awarded the honour in our showreel, or watch our video interview with him in full here.
