A host of new awards will be included to the seventh annual Food from Britain and HSBC Export Awards, including four to celebrate the strength of exports from each region in the UK. The new awards are open to any food or drink company, large or small, which has been exporting for at least three years. They are sponsored by FFB, Scottish Enterprise, Welsh Development Agency, and Northern Ireland's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development and the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Investment. Also new this year is the Seafood Exporter of the Year category, sponsored by the Sea Fish Industry Authority. The award recognises the quality and innovation of the country's seafish suppliers and manufacturers. The awards take place on December 12 at the Inter-Continental Hotel in London as part of FFB's Network Forum event. {{NEWS }}
