Pet Industry Federation Awards 2016 receive record entries

The Pet Industry Federation (PIF) has revealed the finalists for this year’s PIF Awards.  

The Pet Industry Federation Awards celebrate those pet businesses that have made outstanding achievements throughout the year. It also provides an opportunity for the whole industry to come together, socialise and network over a three-course meal with entertainment and a live band. This year’s entries were particularly high-calibre and the judges will now focus on whittling these quality finalists down.

The winners will be announced on Tuesday 1 November at a themed black-tie dinner to be held at the Wokefield Park Hotel, near Reading. Awards will be presented by actor and comedian, Chris Barrie of Tomb Raider, Brittas Empire and Red Dwarf Fame.
