This year, the awards are bigger and better than ever, with 20 award categories that represent the huge spectrum of fine farm produce on the market, the awards saw an unprecedented number of great quality entries. The awards seek out products with stellar British credentials, and close attention will be paid to the provenance of the ingredients. Celebrity judges, include Nathan Outlaw, Rosemary Shrager, Jimmy Doherty and Valentine Warner to mention a few.
Jon Edwards, Managing Director at Ludlow Food Centre, added: “We are so lucky to have such skilled artisans across the entire business. The passion, dedication and skill that goes in to each of Ludlow Food Centre’s products is second to none, and I’m delighted that 3 of our products produced in The Butchery, Bakery and the Jams & Pickles kitchen have been recognised in these prestigious awards. We have our fingers crossed now that the expert judges will love our products as much as we do!”
