Food and drink manufacturers that, through excellence and innovation, have helped to lead the UK economy out of the recession will be recognised at Foodex 2014 (NEC, Birmingham, 24–26 March) with the return of the Great British Bounce Back.

The competition will showcase best practice examples from across the industry in a bid to identify those businesses going the extra mile and investing in the future of the UK’s manufacturing industries.

2012 winner, Oxfordshire bakery The Fabulous Bakin’ Boys took the top honours in the #GBBB competition thanks to a £3 million investment in an automation packaging production line from Ulma. The investment was recognised for helping increase plant capacity and improving overall efficiency.

For those companies who have reduced energy consumption, invested in next generation workforce through introducing apprenticeships or developed the supply chain to ensure traceability, this award is for you. For the chance to scoop this year’s Great British Bounce Back Champion title, simply visit www.foodex.co.uk/GBBB and explain in 50 words or less why your organisation should be crowned champion.

Entries will be uploaded to www.foodex.co.uk/GBBB for the public to vote for their favourite to win. Shortlisted entries will be displayed at Foodex 2014, at the NEC from 24th – 26th March where visitors and industry experts will get the chance to vote for the entry which represents the great contribution to the future of the UK’s biggest manufacturing sector.

Foodex 2014 offers a one-stop shop for manufacturing professionals across the full industry spectrum including bakery, beverage, dairy, fresh, ingredients, logistics, meat and seafood sectors. Foodex is co-located with Food & Drink Expo, incorporating Farm Shop & Deli Show and the National Convenience Show. The exhibition is free to attend – visitors can register via the website. Visitor badges are valid across all three days of the show and will allow entry into co-located shows. As this is a trade show, strictly no under 16s will be admitted.
