YPL Exhibitions & Events, the organisers behind the popular annual Women In Meat Industry Awards, report a very substantial uptake in nominations for this year’s initiative.

With the awards ceremony scheduled for 11th November, the process to find this year’s finalists and winners opened for initial nominations in early June and the final deadline of 11th July is now fast approaching. Lead organiser, Sharon Yandell has urged everyone to put forward candidates who are working in various meat industry sectors without delay.

Stage two will be the voting period, when those nominated are listed via Meat Management magazine and the Women In Meat Industry Awards website where online voting takes place.

Celebrity chef and TV broadcaster, Rachel Allen will host this year’s ceremony and make the presentations to winners at the 5-star Royal Garden Hotel, London, on 11th November. The much anticipated presentations cover 12 categories and all will be revealed during the black tie event and dinner, which also features an after-party.

The Women In Meat Industry Awards was launched in 2018 via Meat Management magazine to great acclaim, and many thousands of votes are received each year.
