RFG Awards 2018: The winners and runners-up

The RFG Awards dinner 2018 was another great success and a huge thank you to all our members who took the time to enter each award category. As usual, the judges had some lively discussions as they debated who should  take the top prizes and claim the runners-up slots. They were especially impressed with entries that focused on the award they were competing for and used statistics  and  customer testimonials to evidence their achievements.

The entries also highlighted the importance of collaboration within the industry and with our customers. The best results are often achieved through a true partnership approach. Judges were faced with some very tough choices but, in the end, they had to make some tough decisions.
