Food and drink manufacturers have been invited to win national recognition by entering their products in the Chefs’ Choice Awards, organised by the publisher of Food Manufacture, William Reed.

Now in their second year, the awards celebrate the achievements of food manufacturers and foodservice companies that supply foods to restaurants nationwide. The awards aim to showcase the best top quality food products.

Judged for chefs by chefs, the awards seek operators that have produced frozen, fresh, chilled or ambient products that deliver innovation, great taste and value.

Open for entries

Staged in association with Food Innovation Solutions and Good Sense Research, 27 categories – ranging from bread and morning goods to poultry products, sweet cakes, biscuits and desserts – are open for entries.

Taking part in the awards is easy: simply enter a finished product that is ambient, chilled, fresh, frozen or part-baked in one of the 27 categories featured on the awards website​. The deadline for submissions is Monday November 20 and each entry costs £475+VAT.

All category winners, entrants achieving a highly-rated standard and finalists will be able to use the awards’ logos on packaging and in all marketing.

Judging panel

The Chefs’ Choice Awards judging panel includes: chefs, nutritionists, food technologists and end users, including restaurateurs and pub landlords. They will be probing each entry to assess its aroma, flavour, texture, level of innovation and value per portion.

Winners will be revealed at a reception at London’s Haymarket Hotel on Tuesday February 27 2018.

The awards are supported by Food Manufacture​ and sister titles Restaurant, The Morning Advertiser​ and The Grocer​.
