FDF awards

Following on from our success at The Queen’s Award this year, Smylies are very happy to announce that we have been shortlisted for the Food and Drink Federation’s (FDF) Exporter of the Year Award. With all the hard work that Smylies do, receiving recognition from such a prestigious organisation is an honouring and humbling experience, and our team can’t wait to get stuck in at the awards ceremony on 20th September.

What are the FDF Awards?

The FDF Awards is a celebration of the UK’s thriving food and drink industries, and a way to congratulate those who have excelled in the sector. Around five hundred guests are invited to the event to enjoy a delicious meal and mingle with other individuals and companies who work with food and drink. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by esteemed British food critic, journalist and writer Jay Rayner.

Some exceptional brands will be in attendance, such as Bird’s Eye, Nestle, PepsiCo and KP Snacks, all of whom are partnered with Smylies and are exported by us to countries across the world!

What do Smylies do?

As part of the FDF Awards, Smylies have been nominated for ‘Exporter of the Year’, sponsored by Santander. There is a lot that goes into creating an enterprise like Smylies, including cultivating client relationships, working with the best brands in the UK and around the world, and ensuring that all the products we stock arrive at their destination in the best possible condition.

Our bespoke portal allows you to browse the thousands of products that Smylies offer for you to import. You can use this service to create an order for your business or overseas retail shop and supermarket.
