2018 Winners in Focus – National Centre for Food Manufacturing

2018 Winners in Focus – National Centre for Food Manufacturing

18th September 2019

National Centre for Food Manufacturing (NCFM) scooped the top prize for the Food, Drink and Farming award at the South Holland Business Awards in 2018.

NCFM impressed the judges with their wide variety of courses relevant to Lincolnshire’s booming food and drink industry, research opportunities and industry services.

Sharon Green, Deputy Head, comments: “We entered the awards to gain recognition for the outstanding business contribution that our staff have made within the community. We value the impact that our apprentices have but we also aim to lead by example by employing apprentices.

“We are a nationally leading provider of apprenticeships, but many people locally still don’t know what we do or that the University has a vibrant campus in Holbeach, so winning this award has helped to boost our profile locally.”

Offering part-time study for food industry employees and innovation for businesses, NCFM is part of the University of Lincoln.

Sharon continues: “The value of this award extends beyond reputation and potential business opportunities; it is a chance for us to support a great local event whilst recognising our own team. They appreciate being recognised for their hard work and being shortlisted alone puts big smiles on people's faces!

“The increased awareness doesn’t apply just to potential apprentices, but it receives more attention from companies and the wider community. So, for that reason, we’ll remain focused on winning awards - because what’s good for the food and drink sector is good for us too. Win or lose, being involved matters!”
