First launched in 2018 to great acclaim, the immense and vitally important contribution made by women to the UK meat industry’s success is recognised every year through a unique initiative; the Women in Meat Industry Awards. The 2020 ceremony took place online due to the Covid-19 situation, but a live ceremony combined with a black tie dinner takes place in London in 2021 and is then scheduled to remain an in-person event thereafter, normally taking place in November or December each year.
You can watch a video of the highlights below from both 2020 (online) and 2019 (in-person event).
