British Baker is delighted to kick off the search for the 2018 winners of the Baking Industry Awards.

Now is not the time to be modest! So many of our previous winners and finalists have said they never thought they could win – when their professionalism over the years has made them a worthy entrant.

If you do win a Baking Industry Award, your business can benefit from publicity, recognition from your peers, and a huge boost for yourself and your staff.

Across 10 categories, we are looking for those at the top of their game, standing out from the incredible pool of talent in the British baking industry. And, if selected as a finalist, you and a partner can join us at the 2018 awards ceremony in London.

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

Entering the awards is simple using our online system (see right). Entries from any professional bakery business are welcome, but if you have won a Baking Industry Award in the past three years you may not enter the same category again. If you want to enter more than one category, each entry must be by a different individual from your firm.
