FPA AWARDS WINNERS 2019

 FPA AWARDS WINNERS 2019

Another fantastic FPA Awards Night was had at The Grand Brighton on March 7, with the industry celebrating innovation, creativity, sustainability and outstanding service.  Everything about the evening, from the pre-dinner cocktails to the fabulous food to the after party underlined why this is a such a great sector to work in and something to be proud of.

FPA Chairman Howard Colliver said that the industry deserved to celebrate its success.  It’s been a challenging year but the industry is well placed to rise to those challenges and ensure it faces the future with confidence.

Howard made special mention of and gave thanks to Kevin Curran at Tri-Star who bows out of the industry after 30 years’ service and Jo Gilroy of Bunzl Catering Supplies who leaves the industry for pastures new having made her mark in the FPA through the Environment Committee and the work with Sancroft.
