Brüninghoff is awarded the 2017 State Prize for Food
We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the “North-Rhine Westphalia State Prize for Food” by the Ministry for Environment, Agriculture, Conservation and Consumer Protection of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia. This prize not only stands for the commitment in the area of food and nutrition, as well as the examination of the challenges being faced by society, but it also stands for sustainability and environmental management. Besides the quality and taste of the food, further judging criteria taken into account included the provision of apprenticeships and the payment of wages in accordance with the current tariff agreements. The precondition to receive the State Prize is having received the Gold Award from the German Agricultural Society (DLG), something we have already received this year. The Minister of Agriculture and Consumer Protection Christina Schulze Föcking emphasised during the awards ceremony that the agriculture and food industry in North Rhine-Westphalia is well-positioned overall. We are of course delighted that we have been able to make a very significant contribution to this, and that this contribution has been honoured with us receiving this award!
