Graham Yandell, publisher of Meat Management magazine, said: “Despite the extraordinary challenges we have all faced this year, it was great to be able to recognise many talented people who make up our industry.
 
“Although Covid-19 guidelines prevented us from staging a physical ceremony, the online format, along with the help of our special guest host, Katharine Merry, allowed us to truly appreciate the hard-work and dedication of the 51 finalists plus the category winners.
 
Winner of the Meat Businesswoman of the Year Margaret Boanas added: “I am delighted to accept this award, and to see women being recognised in our industry. Research acknowledges that companies with women in senior management roles perform better than those without, we need the brightest and best across all sectors in order to deal with the challenges we are facing.”
