Deliciouslyorkshire, the Regional Food Group for Yorkshire and the Humber have announced the launch of their 2023 Taste Awards.
A huge celebration of the county’s food and drink businesses, the awards are now the biggest of their kind in the north of England and attract hundreds of entries.
Allison Kane, Deliciouslyorkshire’s Business Development Manager said: “We’re really excited to launch this year’s Taste Awards along with a new category for Best Sustainable Product which we’ve added to the line-up.
“The Awards are a great way to get your products and business in front of a huge range of industry experts on a massive regional stage and we’re delighted to welcome back our headline sponsors from last year’s event, FixOurFood and the University of York School for Business and Society.
“This year’s esteemed judging panel will include food writers and critics, chefs and retail buyers who will be working their way through the entries of our 24 categories in late August to determine our 2023 shortlist, with our winning products and businesses announced in November. We can’t wait!”
This year’s winners will be revealed at a glittering black-tie event at the Pavilions of Harrogate hosted by artisan food expert Nigel Barden and Chef Consultant Steph Moon.
As well as revealing the winner of each category, the evening will culminate with the announcement of the coveted Supreme Champion, awarded to the product which the judging panel agree is the standout entry of the year. Also unveiled will be the winner of this year’s Judy Bell Yorkshire Food Hero Award. Named in honour of the late and great founder of Shepherds Purse Cheeses and chair of Deliciouslyorkshire, the title is awarded to an individual who has gone above and beyond to champion Yorkshire’s food and drink industry.
