The Made in Sheffield Awards celebrates excellence in manufacturing from businesses within S postcodes. The awards provide an opportunity for manufacturers to network and gain insight from other businesses in the region. It is a fantastic occasion to showcase what our region has to offer.

For a third year, Sheffield University Management School supports the Made in Sheffield Awards. This year, the school has chosen to sponsor the Sustainable/Ethical Manufacturer of the Year Award as it fits with our mission of having a positive impact on societies across the world, driving sustainable practices through innovative research and transformative education. The judges will be looking for the company that has made the greatest commitment to reducing the negative impact of manufacturing on the environment.

Other categories that are featured in the Made in Sheffield Awards include: Manufacturing Innovation Award; Export Award; Apprentice of the Year; Food and Drink Award; Manufacturer of the Year (under £25 million); and the Made in Sheffield Award.

On 24 March 2022, Made in Sheffield and Insider Media announced the shortlisted entrants. For the Sustainable/Ethical Manufacturer of the Year Award that we are sponsoring, the shortlists are as follows:

  • Powerstar
  • Bluetree Group
  • Hogen Systems
  • Gripple
  • Moss Valley Fine Meats

On 28 April 2022, South Yorkshire's manufacturers were celebrated as the winners were announced at the Made in Sheffield Awards Dinner.

Congratulations to Gripple who won the Sustainable/Ethical Manufacturer of the Year Award which we sponsored.

"The category shortlisted entries from both long-established firms that have embraced sustainability and younger companies in which sustainability is core to their existence. While the judges recognised the fantastic work the smaller companies are doing, they chose Gripple for the huge impact it is making, leading the field in best practice across the entire agenda – from supply chain, to energy and recycling, to community." - Insider Media
