People Awards - BFFF

Stars Shine Bright at 2nd Annual People Awards

On Thursday 7th February we celebrated the best and brightest stars across the frozen food industry at our People Awards Dinner.

Once again we saw entries from across the industry, highlighting the team members that go above and beyond daily to contribute to this successful industry. This year saw us introduce a range of new categories and welcomed team entries.

All finalists were invited to join us at the VIP Finalists reception where they had the opportunity to meet the judges and fellow finalists and receive their finalist certificate from BFFF Chief Executive, John Hyman.

The awards ceremony took place during dinner where celebrity compere Dr David Bull announced the winners and they were presented their award by John Marren of Company Shop, People Awards Sponsor.

We rounded the evening off with a lively disco, and some great moves on the dancefloor – a great atmosphere and fantastic night had by all!

Following the success of the People Awards in the last two years it has become an annual event and we will be launching our 2020 People Awards soon, with the awards ceremony taking place following the Business Conference on Thursday 27th February 2020.

If you would like to be one of the first to know about the 2020 People Awards please contact Charley Price.
