Last night (Tuesday), some 500 leading figures from the world of food and grocery gathered at the annual IGD Awards in London, to celebrate the industry’s outstanding achievements of the last year.
Commenting on the IGD Awards, Joanne Denney-Finch, IGD Chief Executive, said: “We are living through times of great change, yet the resilience and determination of our world-class industry to turn this change into opportunity never fails to impress. Whatever the circumstances, food and grocery companies continue to surprise and delight shoppers with fresh ideas and great service.
“I am always impressed by the variety and quality of the submissions we receive and the bar has been set just as high this year. I would like to congratulate all those who entered.”
The winners of the IGD Awards were selected by judges from across the food and grocery supply chain and announced at last night’s glittering ceremony, which was hosted by journalist and broadcaster Fiona Bruce.
