Dairygold Food Ingredients was crowned company of the year at the 2018 Food & Drink Business Awards. The event, which celebrated the best of manufacturing and the people behind the products, followed the Food & Drink Business Europe Conference and Exhibition. Both events were held recently at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin.

A total of 245 entries were received across 15 categories for the 2018 Awards. Dairygold Food Ingredients scooped the overall prize, winning the Food & Drink company of the year title and was presented with the accolade in front of a host of talented food and drink producers.

The Food Safety and Quality Initiative of the Year category was sponsored by EIQA, while the Food & Drink Innovation of the Year category was sponsored by Henderson Food Machinery.

BFree Foods won Gold in the Health & Wellness Product of the Year category.

Speaking about Dairygold’s win, John Whelan Chairman of Food and Drink Business Europe, who headed the judging panel, said: “Dairygold is a clear leader in the dairy industry, demonstrating its farsighted and technological advanced approach through its ‘Dairy Lean Farm’ programme- the first of its kind in Ireland. Dairygold has successfully applied this international management technique inside its business over the past five years. Its Advance 2020 lean programme, which was supported by Enterprise Ireland, has delivered improvements across a diverse range of the Society’s operations from Logistics, Manufacturing and Sales to Support Services and Administration. Dairygold continued last year to roll out the programme at farm level, as they see farmers are a key component of their dairy supply chain.’’

Tracey Carney, Organiser of the Food & Drink Business Awards, said: “ Innovation is key to driving growth and offering consumer value within the food sector in Ireland. These awards are unique in that they recognise the key industry players who are working hard at driving food production and manufacturing. The Food & Drink Business Awards recognise the most talented producers in the industry in Ireland.”
