Entries invited for the PetQuip Awards 2017

The launch of the PetQuip Awards for 2017 took place at PATS Sandown in March, with entries being invited for a range of categories.

Attendees at the event, now in its fifth year, will see awards presented to deserving winners from the pet industry on the first evening of PATS Telford at a gala dinner and party on Sunday September 24 2017.

PetQuip trade association manager Pat Flynn said: “The PetQuip Awards is now firmly established and is recognised as an enjoyable evening offering great networking between suppliers and retailers.  We are pleased that the industry has acknowledged the professional way in which we have approached the whole judging process and that the business-oriented but fun element of the awards evening has struck a chord in the pet world.”

Chris Brierly of Cotswold Raw, winner of the Food/Treats Pet Product Innovation category in 2016 commented: “We, as a truly small brand, felt very honoured to be asked to take the stage as a gold winner in the innovation category. Thank you for selecting us and for the added benefits such a big event like yours can give to all those new brands and retailers in the room.”
