Are you a leading processor?

Processors still have time to submit their entries for Meat Trades Journal’s annual Meat & Poultry Processing Awards.

The awards recognise the hard work and excellence that goes on across the processing sector. Now in their third year, they are starting to build momentum and last year saw a big jump in entries from companies keen to take home a title.

Once again, the 2012 awards will offer the opportunity for processing firms both big and small to enter seven categories:

• Environmental Initiative of the Year
• Export Initiative of the Year
• Plant Manager of the Year
• Young Processor of the Year
• Supply Chain Initiative of the Year
• Small Processor of the Year
• Processor of the Year

MTJ’s editor Ed Bedington said: “Processors have until 25 November to submit their entry and be in with a chance of winning a top title at these prestigious awards, which have become an important fixture in the meat industry’s calendar. Last year saw some excellent entries, with Dunbia taking the top title of Processor of the Year, and I expect competition to be strong again this year.”

The 2012 awards are again being supported by all the major industry organisations — The Association of Independent Meat Suppliers, the British Poultry Council, the British Meat Processors Association, the International Meat Trade Association, the Provision Trade Federation and the Scottish Association of Meat Wholesalers.

This year’s awards are also being supported by a number of organisations, including Eblex, the Meat Training Council, The CDO Group, Bizerba and Foodex, the organiser of the UK’s leading meat-processing event. Entertainment on the awards night is being sponsored by Systems Integration.
