Nobody understands the importance of women in the meat industry like Cutting Edge. Our business is structured around strong, female voices with several women directors and senior managers. We are determined to channel these voices and support other women across this previously male-dominated trade. It is therefore with great pride that we announce for a second year running, we are sponsoring the Women in Meat Industry Awards.
This important accolade scheme is designed to recognise outstanding female talent across the industry. Hosted by Meat Management magazine, the innovative awards initiative will be driven by reader nominations and votes. A judging panel has also been assembled to select the most prestigious category: Meat Businesswoman of the Year. The long campaign will culminate in a lavish awards ceremony in Kensington, London. Here, nominees from across the country will join together and celebrate the vital role that women play in meat production. And, just like last year, Cutting Edge will proudly stand along such talent as official partners to the event.
The Women in Meat Industry Awards were launched in 2018 after it became apparent that more needed to be done to celebrate and encourage female talent. Categories cover a range of businesses, including craft butchers, wholesale and manufacturing companies and training and education. Cutting Edge were absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to sponsor the awards as this is an issue at the heart of our business. We thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony last year, with Managing Director Sam Tinsley even given the opportunity to hand out an award on stage. Again, we are looking forward to attending this year and meeting all the impressive nominees.
The Women in Meat Industry Awards will take place on the 16th November and will be hosted by celebrity broadcaster Katie Derham.
