Muntons, which has a site on Jewison Lane, Bridlington, won the award for the ‘Best food and drink industry AD project’ at the AD and Biogas Industry Awards ceremony.
This was a highly contested category for UK food and drink companies sponsored by HRS Heat Exchangers.
The annual Industry awards event was held at the Vox conference centre, Birmingham with the ceremony hosted by Charlotte Smith, presenter of Radio 4’s Farming Today programme.
Dr Nigel Davies, Muntons manufacturing and sustainability director, collected the award on behalf of the company.
Nigel Davies said: “To win this award means a great deal to us.
“Our site services manager, Mick Cochrane, was the driving force behind our AD project but sadly he passed away just before the project was completed. His legacy is the Muntons AD plant.”
