Training body The Institute of Meat has revealed that HRH The Princess Royal will be attending its annual prize-giving ceremony.

Taking place on 21 February at Painters’ Hall in London, the ceremony, held in conjunction with the Worshipful Company of Butchers, rewards the achievements of apprentices, employers and training providers. The ceremony has been running for over 25 years and has recognised more than 1,000 members of the British meat industry.

The Princess Royal was admitted as an Honorary Freeman of The Company in 2003, and later became a Master in 2010.

The Institute of Meat chief executive Keith Fisher (MB.Inst.M) said: “We’re honoured to hear that HRH The Princess Royal, past Master of WCB, plans to join us at our annual prize-giving event. It will mean so much to everyone attending and make the event extra-special. We look forward to showing HRH how vibrant and talented our industry has become, especially with the introduction of the butchery standard apprenticeship.”

Last year’s winners at the ceremony included apprentices from MEAT Ipswich, Dunbia Training Academy and Crosby Butchery Training​.
