For the third time in a row, Weber Maschinenbau is one of the premium sponsors of the Promotion Price of the Meat Industry. It is awarded annually by afz and FLEISCHWIRTSCHAFT, professional publications of the publishing company Deutscher Fachverlag, and honors junior staff from the entire meat industry. Creative ideas and strength of purpose are in demand and will be financially supported by a prize money. The aim of this initiative is to identify, promote and establish young talented people in the industry. In December, a personal statement by Tobias Weber has been published in the afz, which is a weekly journal for the meat industry, in order to clarify the importance of supporting these talents and to encourage them to participate as well. Whether as a professional in craft or industry, trade or processing, whether as a student or a scientist – everyone can participate in this contest. Closing date to apply is March 16, the award ceremony will take place at the Meat Vision Day on May 16 at the exhibition grounds in Frankfurt.
