The Quality Food Awards 2016 will be dishing up another chance for success across the board, from the smallest artisan producer to the largest multi-nationals.

The awards are considered the ultimate endorsement of food products and, because each product is put through a rigorously fair judging process by a team of over 200 food experts, consumers and entrants know that each winning accreditation is credible and deserved.

“Now in its 37th year, these prestigious awards are perfect for small and large producers alike,” said Helen Lyons, of organisers Metropolis Business Media.

“We are inviting entries for the Quality Food Awards, the Good Choice! Awards – recognising excellence in the healthy option and free-from sector – and the Quality Drink Awards, celebrating the very best in wines, beer, cider, whiskies and spirits.

“What sets us apart is the impartiality and rigour of the judging process, which sits at the heart of everything we do - it means people buying products with the Q Mark know they are choosing the best in the market.”

The awards cover 85 categories, including chilled and frozen products, seasonal goods, drinks, and confectionary.

The opening date for entries is June 24 and judging begins on August 1. The winners will be announced at ceremonies at London’s Grosvenor House on 10 November 2016.
