Reception Rooms opened from 6 pm with a call to Dinner for 7 pm. The evening was full of cabaret, dance bands, the Annual Awards presentations and at 1-1.30 am Breakfast was served with the event coming to a close at 3 am the following morning.

More than 800 BFFF members and guests gathered together for a great night of entertainment. The Hilton’s ‘5 star’ ballroom came alive as members and their valued guests gathered together with networking and ‘having a great time’ in mind.

BFFF President, Peter Allan, welcomed members and their guests before dinner was served. Executive chef Anthony Marshall and his talented team once again prepared a top class meal.

Support for the event was overwhelming not only from members who attended, but also from those companies who add their support through generous sponsorship. We are very grateful to our 9 sponsors who made such a fantastic contribution to the occasion and enabled us to provide a prestigious evening of entertainment.

We are grateful to the sponsors of our awards for supporting us in our recognition of new product development in the industry. Our thanks go to the Yearsley Group, who sponsored the retail category for the 8th year running and to NewCold for sponsoring the foodservice category for the 4th year. Their support makes a big difference to the federation’s work in running the Annual Awards and their generosity is very much appreciated.

We’d like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all the following companies for their extra support at this year’s event:

The Annual Awards for New Products sponsored once again by the Yearsley Group for the Retail Sector and NewCold for the Foodservice Sector.

Also, the following companies continued their sponsorship:

Sam Browne Foods sponsored the  main cabaret, Freiberger (UK) sponsored the main band, Iceland sponsored the seating brochure, Moy Park sponsored the table arrangements and Magnavale sponsored the Breakfast.

We were also pleased to welcome new sponsors – Bidvest Foodservice who kindly sponsored the President’s Reception and complimentary bottled water, and Daregal who sponsored the Reception Rooms- a big thank you from all at BFFF.

The Dinner Dance provides a fantastic opportunity to entertain customers and to meet up with old friends in the industry.
