John Hyman, BFFF chief executive, said: “These awards are a real victory for all the winners and their companies, and teams should be incredibly proud of their achievements.

 “The Product Awards celebrate new product development excellence and innovation that continuously drives the frozen food industry to be the dynamic and developing sector that it is.

“The standard of entries was exceptional and it was really encouraging to see how many companies put products forward, which serves as a sign of the confidence they have in their products.

“In their 31st year, the Annual Product Awards proves that frozen food is still at the top of its game when it comes to innovation, which will only help the industry grow further and reach the £10 billion target we’re aiming for.

“As always, these award wins are a team effort and we look forward to having the opportunity to recognise the people behind the products as the entries for the BFFF People Awards open later this summer, with new categories added following the success of last year’s inaugural awards.”
