Taste Award Sponsorships 2022

The generous support of our fantastic sponsors is a cornerstone of the Taste Awards.

Our aim is to celebrate and champion the very best of Yorkshire’s Food and Drink industry and becoming a category sponsor is a great way to do this.

The largest and most respected food and drink accolades in the North of England, the Awards attract hundreds of entries from businesses across the region and are a fantastic opportunity to promote your services to like-minded industry people in a passionate and ever growing sector.

Sponsoring a category can not only provide a huge boost for your business and the ceremony itself is a great networking opportunity to catch up with and entertain clients.

Our 2022 Joint Headline Sponsors:

The new School for Business and Society at the University of York brings together the Department of Social Policy and Social Work and the York Management School into a groundbreaking combination of disciplines, aiming to deliver real societal impact through research which looks at key debates in public policy, business and society.

Through combining and amplifying strengths in responsible business management, social and public policy, social work and public management, the School aims to create an environment that will help develop the ethical leaders of tomorrow.

FixOurFood is an ambitious research programme inspiring action across Yorkshire to co-create a regenerative food system. Led out of the School for Business and Society at the University of York the programme is underpinned by a robust evidence base; pioneering, envisioning, and stimulating respectful debate to drive transformation to ensure healthy people and a healthy planet.

To achieve this we are focussing on schools, hybrid business models and regenerative farming, alongside a comprehensive team of stakeholders and academic partner institutions to harness their expertise and innovative minds. The team is also developing new measures to help stakeholders understand the impact of decisions taken within the food system and identifying which policies and governance structures are needed to support transformative change.

Anthonia James, Operations Director of the FixOurFood programme said: “Both the School for Business and Society and FixOurFood are delighted to be sponsors of this year’s Taste Awards to celebrate the amazing businesses and food across Yorkshire.”
