2021 has been a challenging year for the food and drink supply chain. As well as the covid-19 pandemic, there has been the end of the EU transition period and generally challenging trading conditions. This category recognises companies that weathered considerable storms during 2021.

Tell us how your business has coped with a challenging situation during the year. It may have been your Covid-19 operation or recovery strategy, your plan to manage growth in challenging times, a loss of a key market or maybe a technical project that didn't go entirely to plan! Show us how your organisation has worked through the difficulties to emerge stronger.
