Taste of West seeks the best for food awards

Food and drink manufacturers to be showcased in annual Taste of West awards

Once again, Taste of the West is looking for the best food and drink manufacturers in the South West, for its annual awards.

Established 18 years ago, the Taste of the West Awards showcases the best food and drink the region has to offer, writes Greg Carter.

John Sheaves, Taste of the West’s chief executive officer, said: “This is about the people behind the products and the brands which now make up a vibrant food culture here in the West Country.”

Individuals and businesses that have entrepreneurial flair and imagination, and offer excellent customer service, need apply for this prestigious award, the Carol Trewin South West Producer of the Year.

Last year’s winner, Patrick McCraig, of Otter Brewery, says: “The effect that this award has had on the whole business since we won has been brilliant- a real confidence boost for all our staff that we are all doing the right thing.”

Entrants will be judged on set requisites, including business development and growth, production methods and methods of distribution.
