At British Baker, we pride ourselves on the integrity and the robustness of our judging process, making our awards the ones that everyone wants to win. The refreshed judging process is broken down into the following stages:
All entries are reviewed by a judging panel organised by the sponsoring company. This also includes an independent judge and British Baker appointed adjudicator. You DO NOT have to be a supplier or a customer of any category sponsors to enter.
Each category will be judged under one of the following subheadings:
Business – Shortlisted entries from stage one will be reviewed further. If a site visit is needed this will be arranged. From there, three finalists and a winner will be picked.
People – After the first stage, shortlisted candidates in this category will be asked to interview. This can be in person or virtually. They will also be asked to send or show a sample of their products if relevant. The panel will pick three finalists and a winner. Part of the judging process might include site visits if needed for the category.
Product – Any product shortlisted in these categories will be asked to send/deliver the shortlisted product to the final judging stage on a selected date to be confirmed. The panel will from this determine three finalists and the winner from these entries.
A company may enter more than one category, but different company representatives must enter each of the chosen categories. No one person can enter more than one category. Companies that won any category in 2021 may not enter the same category this year. The exception to this is product categories – the winning company may enter the following year but must enter with a different product.
We thoroughly enjoyed the Awards programme and are absolutely delighted at winning the Bakery Exporter of the year Award. This has given us all a big boost during a difficult time for everyone.
We were delighted to be an activation sponsor of this special event which celebrated the people, products and business of our industry.
It was such an incredible experience
to hear my name called.
The Baking Industry Awards are extremely
important for the industry. Being a key part
of the industry on the manufacturing side, it’s
important for us to contribute and be part of it.
Plain and simple.
The Awards aren’t just about tonight, they’re
more than a year’s worth investment, hard work
and passion that people put into them. It’s just a
pleasure to be part of that.
