A range of nominations for this year’s Women In Meat Industry Awards is now live at the dedicated event website and readers can vote for their choices in various categories.

To see the finalists and to vote go to womeninmeatawards.com/vote. Deadline for voting is August 5th and the process is quick and easy.

The annual awards will culminate in a five-star black tie dinner and ceremony plus an after party at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington on November 15th. In 2018 the Awards recognised eight winners in different categories which for 2019 is being expanded up to ten categories.

Over three thousand votes were received last year and organisers are hopeful for an even bigger response this time around. The overall Meat Businesswoman of the Year Award went to  Lisa Hand, the head of supply chain at Dunbia.

Broadcaster, newsreader, journalist, music aficionado and 2017 Strictly Come Dancing Christmas champion, Katie Derham has been confirmed as the celebrity host for the next Women In Meat Industry Awards dinner and ceremony.

Pam Brook, editor of Meat Management magazine, which organises and administers the event  said: “All the team are really looking forward to recognising the amazing contribution women make to our industry. I hope as many readers as possible will now vote for the 2019 finalists online.”
