The closing date for entries to the 2018 Baking Industry Awards is fast approaching.

If you want to be in with a chance to win a Baking Industry Award – and benefit from publicity and the recognition from your peers, as well as get a huge boost for yourself and your staff – then we need your entry by next Tuesday (8 May).

But don’t just take our word for it; here’s what previous winners have said about their success:

Winning was fantastic recognition for all Tesco colleagues and a credit to their hard work and commitment. Customers have noticed and we’ve proudly included the award in many of our communications.”
Gordon Gafa, category director, Tesco – Supermarket Bakery Business of the Year 2017

The award helped raise awareness of my breads, my business and baking courses. Before winning the award, I only sold my Church Street Sour at weekends, but now it’s available every day.”
Paul Barker, creator of Church Street Sour – Speciality Bread Product of the Year 2017

Winning has created greater awareness of Campden BRI, so new companies have been in contact enquiring about our services.”
Katie-Joy Woods, Campden BRI – The Customer Focus Award 2017

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.

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.

Entering the awards is simple, using our online system. 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.
