The National Egg & Poultry Awards is a prestigious awards ceremony backed by the British Poultry Council (BPC) and the British Egg Industry Council (BEIC). They honour and reflect achievement, excellence and best practice in the sector, while also promoting the egg and poultry industry as a career choice and providing a networking opportunity for the sector.
The National Egg & Poultry Awards launched to recognise and reward excellence in the UK egg and poultry industry, with a view to inspiring the whole sector to new heights. In 2019 we received a high standard of entries from right across the industry, representing small, inspiring start-ups right through to global players. It was great to see so much innovation and investment reflected in the entries. We look forward to another great year in 2020 as the industry goes from strength to strength.
THE NATIONAL EGG AND POULTRY AWARDS 2020 TO BE HELD VIRTUALLY
The 2020 National Egg & Poultry Awards will now be hosted virtually. The awards will be streamed live on Wednesday 18th November at 4pm. The decision to make this year’s Awards virtual was in response to the Government guidelines and advice surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. While we are obviously disappointed that we will not be able to bring the industry together in person, we are excited to be able to deliver the National Egg & Poultry Awards in a different format.
After a successful event in 2019, this year’s awards attracted a high standard of entry from producers, packers, processors and vets from across the UK and the virtual judging session, was held earlier in the summer.
To view the awards free of charge please register your interest below and further details will be sent to you nearer the time. We look forward to seeing you (virtually) on Wednesday 18th November.
