Deliciously Yorkshire Taste Awards
Headline Sponsorship / Category Sponsorship
Our annual Taste Awards ceremony is our flagship event and has grown year on year to be the largest and most respected food and drink awards in the North of England.
2023 saw a record number of both product and non-product entries, all of which are judged by a panel of high profile and respected industry experts including retail buyers, food broadcasters, authors and critics, chefs and food business entrepreneurs. Judging takes place over several day during which our finalists and eventual champions are decided. Our glittering awards ceremony attracts almost 300 industry representatives and gains huge regional coverage through the Yorkshire Post and a range of other media outlets.
