Nominations for the annual IoM and WCB industry awards
The Institute of Meat (IoM) and Worshipful Company of Butchers (WCB) kicked off their nomination process ahead of their annual luncheon and awards show on Thursday, February 24, 2022.
The annual awards event has been around for over 25 years and has recognized the achievements of over 1,000 members of the meat industry since its inception. This year, the awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 24 February 2022 at Butchers’ Hall in London.
The awards show is the perfect opportunity for talented apprentices in the industry to be recognized for their efforts.
