More than 60 food and drink manufacturing companies and individuals will be competing for coveted FMEA trophies in the 1920s-themed awards evening, hosted by Rugby World Cup winner Matt Dawson.
On display will be a stellar array of talent from Britain’s biggest manufacturing sector. From small-scale firms – such as Nim’s Fruit Crisps and Moss Valley Fine Meats – to food and drink manufacturing giants – such as Coca Cola European Partners and Bakkavor, this is the night when the industry celebrates the best of the best.
Now in their 17th year, the FMEAs 2017 feature seven food and drink manufacturing categories. Oscars will also be awarded for the Best new use of food ingredients, Environmental initiative, Supply chain initiative, Small and medium-sized enterprise innovation, Training programme and Judges’ star performer.
The achievement of individuals will be recognised with the Young talent of the year award and the Me and my factory editor’s choice award. This celebrates the achievement of the factories featured in our sister title Food Manufacture’s flagship Me and my factory profile.
