Tulip Ltd came away victorious from the Food Manufacture Excellence awards, winning two of the categories the business had entered, and was named Highly Commended in a third.

King’s Lynn won Site Team of the Year to follow Redruth’s success in the same category last year.

Stephanie Williams, Apprentice Engineer at Westerleigh, won the Apprentice of the Year title.

Tulip was Highly Commended in the Training Scheme of the Year category for its Engineering Apprentice Scheme.

Rachel Baldwin, VP – HR, who attended the event with Tulip’s nominees, said: “It was a great night for Tulip and I was extremely proud of our people and business.

“It is very rare for the same organisation to win the same award two years in succession”

“We have put a tremendous amount of effort into our apprentice programmes and I am delighted that this has had public recognition, both through Steph for her achievements at Westerleigh on an individual basis, and the wider Engineering Apprentice Scheme which she participated in.

“It was also a great achievement for King’s Lynn to win Site Team of the Year after the team there successfully delivered a transformation programme which improved yields, efficiency and wastage, while embedding a culture of continuous improvement to make it a truly world class centre of excellence for sliced cooked meats. It is very rare for the same organisation to win the same award two years in succession, and with Redruth having clinched the award last year for their own turnaround story, King’s Lynn’s award shows what a remarkable job the team have done.”
