Now is the time for you to tell us who has impressed you over the past year. Is it your company or its products, or have you dealt with a particularly good company, admired a new technology, used a great product or met someone outstanding? It's time for you to let the whole of the food industry know.

We know everyone could enter their own company as well as a number of others for at least one of the Awards categories so don't be put off - e-mail today. Just think of the prestige both you and your company will get from being a winner.

An award to grace the reception area and a certificate strategically hung to impress potential partners in business. Plus of course all the media attention which goes with receiving an award from the Number One journal in the UK food industry. What have you got to lose?

Your nomination for a product or company should be accompanied with material to support the entry - an e-mailed brochure, leaflet, press release or image, a brief description of your reasons for the nomination, or any other information to assist the judges in making a decision on who the three finalists in each category should be. Try to ensure the material reaches us as soon as possible.

The winners will be announced at a glittering evening reception on 23 June 2011 at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire.

Here are the categories:
Award for Excellence in Skills Development & Impact: For a food manufacturer who has demonstrated excellence in training its engineers, and who can show this to be a process rather than an event

Robotics & automation: A partnership involving the application and use of robotics and automation in a food-processing environment

Product of the Year: For best new product in the food and beverage sector

Company of the Year: Companies that have excelled in any particular area of food processing. Entrants should have been in business for at least two years.

Hygiene Solutions: Innovations in products and services to achieve hygienic food processing
