Matt Tebbutt, the presenter of the popular Saturday Kitchen on BBC1, will host the annual FMT Food Industry Awards ceremony and black-tie dinner later this month, taking place at the five-star Royal Lancaster Hotel, London, on Wednesday 25th May.

This year’s event is back in-person after a virtual presentation in 2021 and is being staged as a formal dinner for the first time following many successful years as a lunch.

On the night, winners will be revealed in 15 categories, which all recognise the very best that the food industry has to offer. The awards categories range from Food Manufacturer of the Year and Best Training Initiative to Best Red Meat Product and Best Bakery Product.

Speaking to Food Management Today ahead of the 2022 Awards, Matt Tebbutt said that hosting this year’s ceremony was about “doing what [he] can to help an industry that has had an awful time over the last two years.” He said: “It’s lovely for me, personally, to just be in a room with people that love the food industry as much as I do.”

Awards organiser Sharon Yandell said: “These annual Awards are eagerly anticipated and have become a great success story. They are truly unique and represent the highest standards in product, service and innovation across the sector. The Awards offer a brilliant opportunity to recognise the work that is going on and the progress being achieved in so many areas.”

Editor of Food Management Today Liz Hendley said: “The whole FMT team are looking forward to celebrating the very best of what our great food industry has to offer. We are particularly looking forward to welcoming everyone to our live event after what has been a challenging two years.”
