UK consortium encourages broader international participation for 2022

THE Fresh Produce Consortium (FPC), the UK’s fresh produce trade association, is calling on individuals and businesses throughout the world to enter into the 2022 edition of the FPC Fresh Awards. 

The annual awards recognise the excellence and innovation of all those who operate within the UK supply chain of fresh produce, cut flowers and plants; from the best growers and suppliers to the finest service providers, exceptional marketers and distinguished personnel from across the globe.

This year, FPC is eager to honour and celebrate the increasingly global nature of the UK’s produce trade. The association is inviting a broader international participation across its 16 awards categories, which span individuals, the supply chain, retail excellence and business excellence. 

For 2022, there are four new awards: 

  • International Grower Of The Year
  • UK Grower Of The Year 
  • Team Of The Year
  • HR Initiative Of The Year 

To be eligible, entrants must be involved in trading fresh produce, cut flowers and plants within the UK marketplace. This includes overseas growers, local producers, global exporters, domestic importers, packers and packaging suppliers, local ports and international shipping or logistics providers, UK-wide wholesalers and foodservice distributors, science labs and chemical manufacturers worldwide, as well as marketers at home and abroad.

Simply nominate yourself, your business, or a peer within the industry for free before the deadline of June 2nd. Multiple entries can be made across the 16 award categories and the winners will be announced at a black-tie ceremony on July 8th at The JW Marriott Grosvenor House in London.
