FDF Awards Sponsorship

The Food and Drink Federation Awards are a benchmark of industry excellence – run by industry, for industry.

Following on from our successful 2015 event, we are now approaching sponsors for 2016 which launched on 17 November at the Food Matters Live event at London Excel.

The 2015 awards, hosted at The Brewery, London attracted entries from across the food and drink supply chain, from growers and producers to manufacturers and the leading retailers.

For sponsors it is a valuable opportunity to place your brand in front of established leaders as well as the ambitious, growing small enterprises aiming to be the stars of the future.
