What are the UK Fruit & Vegetable Awards?

Why should I take part?

Winning a UK Fruit & Vegetable Award gives you well-deserved recognition for the excellent work you and your team are doing. It also shows the wider industry the innovative work taking place at your company and gives a boost to staff morale.

Who is eligible to enter?

How do I enter?

A great entry details the excellent work done by the company or individual, what the objectives were, what they did to succeed and overcome obstacles and what the outcomes were.
