Featuring Documentary Premiere

In the face of the pandemic, manufacturing never stopped. Unseen Heroes premieres at the Pinnacle Awards on October 7th, sharing personal impact stories of what manufacturers and food processors dealt with during the pandemic. We shine a light at the supply chain issues, the mental health impact stories due to isolation, physical distancing and masking while having moments of pride and postitive impacts of people – employees coming together. This documentary stars our 2021 award nominees—sharing their experiences on the front line as essential workers in a sector that never shut down. 

Hear their pandemic stories and join us in celebrating the extraordinary work of this vital sector, ramping up production in a high-risk environment to maintain our essential supply chain and keep workers healthy and safe.

Thank you to Shindig for hosting our event! Our virtual and hybrid event partner.
