“This event is the perfect opportunity to look back and acknowledge the immense work and commitment of our 51 finalists and confirm 10 brilliant winners.”
Graham Yandell, publisher of Meat Management magazine, the organisers behind the initiative, said: “With the ceremony just two weeks away, it is nearly time to shine a bright light on the tremendous contribution women make to the meat industry, which has already been recognised by a record 9,200 votes for our collection of finalists.
