The British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF) has announced the names of judges for its inaugural People Awards. The competition celebrates the achievements of professionals who go “above and beyond” for their organization or the wider frozen food industry. Categories cover commercial, purchasing, supply chain, technical, health and safety as well as the industry’s rising stars.

The six-judge panel consists of: Lynda Hulme, HR director Fowler Welch; Vince Craig, BFFF board member; Alison Cannon, founding partner, Resonate Search & Selection; Noli Dinkovski, associate editor, Food Manufacture; Nick Downing, IGD commercial director; Cheryl Bennett, director, Pelican Communications.

The awards scheme, which is also open to non-BFFF members if they can demonstrate they operate within the frozen food industry, is accepting nominations until October 6.

The shortlist will be announced at this year’s BFFF Annual Luncheon on November 21, with the winners presented with their awards at the ceremony in February of 2018. The awards ceremony will follow the association’s Annual Business Conference, Technical Seminar and Health and Safety Seminar which will all be held under one roof for the first time ever.
