Lisa Hand, Dunbia’s Head of Supply Chain, has scooped not one, but two awards at the inaugural Women in Meat industry awards!

Running against strong competition, Lisa won her category award for Meat Businesswoman: Manufacturing & Processing – a fantastic achievement in its own right. She then went on to win the overall Meat Businesswoman of the Year award, in recognition of her contribution to the meat industry over her twenty year career to date.

Speaking of her achievements, Lisa commented; “I was incredibly honoured to have been nominated and I was delighted to win the manufacturing and processing award. When my name was called out as the winner of the overall Meat businesswoman of the Year I was overwhelmed to have won! All of the finalists are amazing women and have achieved so much, it is a wonderful thing to have recognition in the industry for all of our contributions, and hopefully we can encourage more women to consider a career in the meat industry.”

Dunbia was delighted to support Lisa at the Awards which took place at The Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, London on 16th November. Celebrity chef Lesley Waters best known for her appearances on Ready Steady Cook, presented the winners with their awards.

Alan McKeown, Corporate Services Director, Dunbia said; “We are absolutely delighted to see Lisa win these awards. She makes an outstanding contribution to the success of our Company and has earned tremendous respect from suppliers and customers right across the trade. She fully deserves this recognition, and I have no doubt this will encourage other women in our business to continue to build their own career success in the industry.”
