We have given businesses and individuals one more week to enter the 2018 Baking Industry Awards.

The closing date for entering the awards – which can be done quickly and easily using our online system – has been extended to next Tuesday, 15 May,

Across 10 categories, we are looking for those at the top of their game, standing out from the amazing pool of talent in the baking industry.

Winning an award can enable your business to benefit from great publicity and the recognition from your peers, as well as giving a huge boost to yourself and your staff.

“Winning was fantastic recognition for all Tesco colleagues and a credit to their hard work and commitment,” said Gordon Gafa, category director at Tesco after the retailer was declared Supermarket Bakery Business of the Year in last year’s awards. “Customers have noticed and we’ve proudly included the award in many of our communications.”

If selected as a finalist, you and a partner can join us at the 2018 awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane on 5 September.

With a glamorous ‘Oceanic’ theme, this year’s event will begin with a champagne reception, followed by a three-course dinner, then the awards ceremony itself, hosted by a celebrity presenter. You can also enjoy entertainment into the early hours with around 800 other bakery delegates at this premier networking event.

Entries from any professional bakery business are welcome, but if you want to enter more than one category, each entry must be by a different individual from your firm.
