Five food companies confirmed for Skills Award

10 April 2012

At least five major food producers have been nominated for the Skills Development Award, the winner of which will be announced at the FP Awards at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire on 12 June

Five food producers - namely Britvic, The Jordans & Ryvita Company, Oliver James Foods, Warburtons and Arla Foods - are confirmed nominees for the Skills Development Award to take place on 12 June at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire.

Each company has, over the past year, embarked on a skills initiative which has led to it having being nominated for the Award. More details regarding these skills initiatives will appear over the next few weeks.

Judging is due to take place during the week of 21 May, and will take place via an editorial judging panel.

Known officially as The Award for Excellence in Skills Development & Impact, the award is the newest addition to FP's glamorous collection of titles, which will culminate at Appetite for Engineering on 12 June 2012 at the Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire.

A joint effort by Festo, The University of Lincoln's National Centre for Food Manufacturing; and the National Skills Academy for food & drink, resulted in the award, which was presented for the first time at the 2011 FP Awards.

The Award for Excellence in Skills Development & Impact came about primarily owing to the industry's passion for skills as personified by Gary Wyles, Festo MD; Jonathan Cooper, business development manager at the NSA; and Mike Dudbridge of the University of Lincoln.

Nominations are open to food producers and processors in the UK for training and skills development initiatives focused on automation and engineering related topics.

Its primary objective is to help highlight the significance of skills development in the pursuit of modern engineering and manufacturing techniques in the sector by presenting and recognising quality examples of successful training and skills development initiatives from the sector.
