The final countdown to this year’s Food Management Today Industry Awards ceremony has begun, and organisers are urging anyone who has still not booked their ticket to do so now – as very limited space remains.

The lunch and ceremony will be held on 31st January 2019, and will once again be taking place at the five star Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington.

The lunch will welcome returning host John Torode of MasterChef fame and guest speaker Robbie Glen.

This will be the third Awards ceremony which John has officiated. Awards organiser, Emma Cash, said: “We are delighted that John is joining us again for the lunch and ceremony, and his involvement really does endorse the fact that these events have become a major part of the food processing and retailing calendar.

“These awards are a great success story and offer a brilliant opportunity to recognise the innovative work that is going on across the food industry.

“Don’t miss your opportunity to book your tickets for this fantastic event, the event is scheduled to be a sell out!”

• Best Ingredients Supplier
