Food Industry Excellence Awards Nomination Invitation
PRESS RELEASE – NZIFST EXCELLENCE AWRDS
(For immediate release)
28 February, 2013.
Food Industry Excellence Awards Nomination Invitation.
Excellence may be its own reward but public recognition is a fine complement!
Nominations for the 2013 NZIFST Food Industry Excellence Awards are now invited in four categories. No membership of NZIFST is required.
Since 2010 the New Zealand Institute of Food Science and Technology (NZIFST) has operated these annual awards to recognise excellence in four key aspects of food business management, specifically
• ECO-EFFICIENCY, and
• SERVICE OR SUPPLY
The Awards recognise and reward Food Industry people for excellent performance in the specified fields, and aim to foster these qualities throughout the New Zealand Food Industry. Each award is primarily directed to recognise excellence in people and not the output/outcome as a standalone. Individuals, teams, staff at a specific location or staff of an entire company are eligible for consideration.
Award recipients in each class are determined by a panel comprising senior food industry professionals recognised by NZIFST for their accomplishments in food science and technology in New Zealand. That process ensures the NZIFST Excellence Awards provide the pre-eminent peer recognition for excellent people in the New Zealand food industry.
The next NZIFST Food Industry Excellence Awards will be presented at a celebratory dinner to be held during the 2013 NZIFST Conference, “Time for Action”, in Hastings, 2nd – 4th July. Finalists will be featured in the pre-conference issue of Food New Zealand. Award recipients will receive a trophy and cash award.
Registration of interest is required by 31 March 2013, (achieved by downloading an entry form from the NZIFST web site at http://www.nzifst.org.nz/awards/industryawards). Entries are due on April 11. Sponsorship opportunities are also available for companies who wish to be associated with food industry excellence. For further information contact the awards champion, Allan Main.
