It’s the final countdown to the product nomination deadline for the 2022 FMT Food Industry Awards. Product entry and voting across the 16 awards categories closes this Friday evening, 28th January.

Manufacturers, processors and retailers from across the UK food sector are invited to nominate products for entry into one or more of the nine product categories. Entering products is quick, easy and free.

The FMT Food Industry Awards is the prestigious and unique annual initiative that honours the creativity, hard-work and innovation driving the UK food sector today.

The 2022 awards in- person ceremony and black-tie dinner will be hosted at the 5-star Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on Wednesday evening 25th May, when winners and finalists are announced, and this popular event will offer food industry professionals the chance to celebrate the best from the sector and also to network with customers and colleagues.

Readers and the wider industry are also invited to cast their votes for their choices across seven additional award voting categories. The final deadline for both the product nominations and voting is also Friday 28th January.
