Essex Life Food & Drink Awards 2017

Nominations are closed for the Essex Life Food & Drink Awards 2017. 

The Essex Life Food & Drink Awards are now established as the most prestigious food and drink awards within the county and aim to celebrate all that is great about our local food and drink industry, giving valuable recognition to producers, growers, suppliers and hospitality venues across the region.

To choose the very best winners in each category we looked to both readers and businesses to nominate the best in Essex! So if you had a special meal in an Essex restaurant or pub, had been impressed with the produce and service at a local farm shop or cafe, or have a favourite food or drink that is produced in the county, then we asked you to let us know.

There are 13 categories covering a broad range of activities across the food and drink industry.

Finalists were selected by a panel of expert judges and the winners were announced at the glittering awards ceremony at Braxted Park near Witham on October 5.
