delicious. Magazine Produce AWards

The Produce Awards will put Britain’s top producers centre stage, with the winning products and producers starring in the glossy food magazine’s pages in the October 2016 issue.

Top chefs and food writers will judge the eight categories in regional heats across the UK, looking for leaders in fishing, farming and animal rearing, as well as artisans making the best products from the raw materials. Regional finalists will then be entered into the national judging heat in London, overseen by some of the top names in the food industry, to be announced early next year. 

Editor Karen Barnes says: “delicious. magazine has a huge, loyal following of food-loving fans and we wanted to launch awards that build on our heritage as a publication dedicated to great-tasting food. We want to celebrate producers and artisans who are committed to quality and heritage. We aim to give a voice to the quiet heroes of the food world – the protectors of provenance and shepherds of sustainability.”

“We know the East and West Midlands has a huge number of producers who should be praised and rewarded for the work they do and exposed to a much wider audience – we hope through our awards, social media activity and winners’ publicity we can help them continue their valuable work and grow their businesses.”

Readers can nominate their favourite producers, and producers can enter the awards, from
14 January 2016. For updates and to enter or nominate, visit:
