United Biscuits received the top accolade at the recent Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Awards.

The FDF Awards recognise the achievements of food and drink businesses across a number of categories including: Innovation, Community Partner, Good Employer, Exporter of the Year, Environmental Leadership, Health and Wellbeing Champion, Growth Business, Education Initiative, Food and Drink Scientist, Food and Drink Engineer, and Apprentice of the Year. The FDF President’s Award winner is chosen by the FDF President from amongst the category winners.
“Winning an FDF Award is a real coup for any food and drink business,” says Jim Moseley, FDF President. “This year’s award entries were truly inspiring and reflect the hard work, passion and creativity of those working in our industry. I believe that United Biscuits deserves special recognition in this year’s Awards for its work to boost exports, its collaboration with others to address the looming skills shortage and the way it drives innovation in the industry.”
