Winners of 2018 Meat Management Industry Awards

We were proud to again sponsor a category at the 2018 Meat Management Industry Awards, which took place on Thursday 24th May at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.

Celebrating The UK Meat Industry

coolkit sponsors meat management industry awards

British magician and TV presenter Ben Hanlin presented meat manufacturers, supermarkets, industry suppliers, trade organisations, catering butchers and independent retailers with their winning trophies, before guests enjoyed an after-party to celebrate their achievements.

The Meat Management Industry Awards are a celebration of the creativity, innovation and excellence of the UK’s meat industry. They consist of reader voting and product entries to determine the best in the industry, as chosen by our readers together with a select judging panel for product evaluation.

CoolKit were once again supporters of the event by sponsoring the Best Free From Product category, won by Morrison Turkey Fajita Stir Fry Kit, Avara Foods. Cameron Javed, Sales Director at CoolKit, attended the evening to present the award to the worthy winner: “At CoolKit we know how important getting products to the customer in top condition is. As a leading specialist in refrigerated vehicles we are proud to be associated with top meat manufacturers who enter these great awards.”
