The Food Manufacturing Excellence Awards (FMEAs) is now open for entries, with the even set to take place on Thursday 8 February 2024 at London Hilton Bankside.

The FMEAs recognise the very best of the UK food and drink industry every year and represent the sector’s gold standard.

Figures throughout the world of food and drink will be present to celebrate the amazing achievements of so many firms in the industry.

Entries are now open​ and close on 25 September 2023, after which each submission will be assessed by an expert panel of more than 30 judges. Manufacturers spanning the entire industry will be assessed across 15 different categories before the winners are announced at the year’s unmissable event in London.

The 2024 edition of the FMEAs will also feature a brand new judging format, as five of the categories now require the finalists to present in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style event in front of the judges. The grand prize of Food and/or Beverage Manufacturer of the Year will be one of the awards decided in this manner. You can meet the judges for the awards here.

Food and beverage manufacturers wishing to enter need to complete the online form before the closing date. All entries are completely free, but only businesses operating in the UK are eligible. You can submit your entry for the Food Manufacture Excellence Awards 2024 here.
