SK Chilled Foods picked up two awards at this year’s Food Manufacture Excellence Awards (FMEAs), staged at the Hilton on Park Lane hotel in London earlier this month.

The company was named Chilled, Fresh & Dairy Manufacturing Company of the Year - Large Company, and won the Partnership Award at this year’s Big Top-themed event.

In this exclusive video interview, SK Chilled Foods managing director Jeremy Faulkner said winning the awards was not only a huge thrill for the team who attended on the night, but also for the more than 700 staff at its Teesside site.

Faulkner added: “You clearly get exposure ​[from the evening], but you also get something for the people back at wherever you happen to be based. That really is the most important thing.

‘About the team’

“There are benefits with customers and suppliers, but it’s really about the team and the company overall.”

This year’s FMEAs, sponsored by KDH Projects and Systems Integration, shone a light on the best and brightest in the food and drink manufacturing industry, celebrating their achievements across a wide range of categories.
