Entries have now closed for the Heinz Food Heroes Awards in partnership with Arena. I'd like to thank all of our members who have entered their teams, colleagues or customers.
We've been inundated with hundreds of entries from across the UK and overwhelmed by so many heart-warming stories of individuals and teams from across the industry that have helped their local communities in so many different ways.
We will soon be going through the entries with a fine toothcomb to choose 12 regional winners who will be put forward to the final. The overall winner will be crowned either Most Heroic Individual or Most Heroic Team and win the fantastic prize of a £5000 mentorship programme of their choice.
Watch this space... we look forward to announcing our regional winners soon!
