Taste of the West

IFP To Sponsor Industry Meat And Poultry Award

On the 13th September, Integrated Food Projects will be attending the Taste of the West Awards 2018. The competition supports local food and drink manufacturers from the South West regions; Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire.

Taste of the West is the largest independent food group, established in 1991 to promote and support the South West’s food and drink industry. It now champions food and drink producers in the region with its highly regarded annual awards ceremony to highlight industry excellence.

This year, Integrated Food Projects is sponsoring the Meat and Poultry category of the awards which brings together farms, and meat producers in a shortlist to find the best produce and achieve a ‘highly commended’, silver or the prestigious gold Taste of the West Award.

Oliver Jenkins, Head of Client Solutions, at Integrated Food Projects, said:

“We are thrilled to be sponsoring a category at the Taste of the West Awards, it is a great opportunity for food and drink businesses to really shout about the best of British products and show what is on offer across the region. I’m really looking forward to the day and of course sampling the products.“

The awards will be held at The Great Hall of Exeter University from 11:30am, where around 400 guests will be attending along with the Integrated Food Projects team.


Integrated Food Projects have partnered with Kettleby Foods on a number of high-profile multi-million pound capital projects since 2003/4, helping the business to develop and grow. Throughout that time they have provided cost-effective and efficient solutions on development projects both at our existing ready meals production facility and also in creating a new satellite facility. The projects at our existing facility were managed without impact on our ability to service our own clients, and all projects have been delivered within budget, in a timely fashion and to the requisite standards of safety and quality. Their team work ethos and professional approach ensure successful projects and I would utilise Integrated Food Projects in the future without hesitation.

I have worked with Integrated Food Projects on many capital expenditure projects since 2004, the latest being the development of the new plot of land adjacent to our main site. They successfully employed a project delivery process to ensure the integration of a leased modular building solution with the development of the site infrastructure to improve logistics and Health and Safety. Their staff are always positive and enthusiastic and have fostered a team-work approach ensuring another successful project delivered. I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
