Scissor Sisters co-vocalist Ana Matronic is to host this year’s Food Manufacture Excellence Awards (FMEAs) at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square on Thursday 13 February.

The singer, artist, musician and broadcaster has garnered world fame in her role co-fronting the glam-pop-dance group Scissor Sisters.

Performing in clubs in San Francisco and New York, Matronic met and then joined Scissor Sisters after the group played their first gig at one of the venues where she was working.

The band saw its greatest success in the UK, topping the singles charts with the hit song I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ and reaching number one with its first and second albums.

Musical collaboration

Matronic went on to collaborate with a number of artists, including Mark Ronson, New Order and Duran Duran. Away from performance, she has mentored budding artists on The Voice, commentated on the BBC coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest and hosted her own regular disco-orientated show on Radio 2.

Tickets for this year’s rock-themed FMEAs, now in their 19th year, are still on sale, but selling fast.

These national awards have consistently rewarded all elements of food and drink manufacturing, including environmental initiatives, business acumen, business change management, supply chain innovation, young talent and – put simply – superb teamwork.

Don’t miss your chance to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the food and drink industry at an evening promising to be buzzing with anticipation, excitement and surprise.

This year’s awards are sponsored by Dawn Foods, Fowler Welch, Michael Page and Systems Integration. Category sponsors include LI Europe and Menzies. Associate sponsors are Circle Select, KDH and Markel Tax.
