Food firms celebrate community spirit

19 October 2010

Companies from across the food and drink industry are celebrating their success following the unveiling of the winners of this year’s Food and Drink Federation community partnership awards

Companies from across the food and drink industry are today celebrating their success following the unveiling of the winners of this year’s Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Community Partnership Awards.

The Awards, which took place at the Institute of Directors in London, reward the contributions and dedication shown by organisations throughout the food chain for making a positive difference in their local and business communities.

A total of 23 awards were presented by Jim Paice MP, Minister of State for Agriculture and Food, presented at a prestigious lunch at the Institute of Directors in London.

The winners of Gold awards this year were General Mills in the Local Community category; Asda in the Culture, Media and Sport category; Unilever in the Workplace Wellbeing category and Coca–Cola Enterprises in the Education category.

In the Environment category, Gold awards were presented to United Biscuits and The Authentic Food Company, while the Findus Group received a special award for its sourcing policies.

United Biscuits is the first recipient of the FDF President’s Award – introduced this year to acknowledge the best overall company or initiative from the Gold winners. The award, chosen by FDF President Ross Warburton, recognises United Biscuits’ strong performance across a number of categories in this year’s competition.

Julian Hunt, FDF Director of Communications, said: “Our Awards celebrate some of the inspirational ways in which food companies work within their communities. These companies are rightly proud of the links they have forged, often over many years, and the big impact their efforts are having on society. Our Awards help both to showcase their efforts and to reward their commitment.”
