The awards will be presented at a black tie dinner, held on Friday 16th November 2018 at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London.

The dinner will also include celebrity chef Lesley Waters – who will help present the eight unique accolades.

Nominations are open now, and the deadline is 1st July 2018 – so don’t delay!

Women in Meat Industry Awards organiser Emma Cash said: “We are extremely excited to launch the new Women in Meat Industry Awards this year. This is an amazing opportunity for contributions made by women to the UK meat industry’s success, to be recognised. It will definitely be a night to remember!

“The nomination process closes on 1st July so there really is no time like the present to put forward the names of the women shaping our industry. Perhaps a manager has inspired you, or you’ve seen great progression in a colleague? Do put them forward for consideration without delay.”
