Tasty choice for food award voters

Select Lincolnshire Food Awards.
Select Lincolnshire Food Awards.

Shoppers and food lovers across Lincolnshire are being invited to judge the county’s best growers, producers and hospitality businesses in this year’s Select Lincolnshire Food awards.

The annual awards recognise and reward the people and businesses behind Lincolnshire’s billion pound food and farming industry.

One of the most competitive categories is the ‘People’s Choice Award’ which gives consumers; as well as local chefs, cooks and shoppers, the chance to vote for their favourite local food business which they feel is worthy of an extra-special prize.

Business development manager for Select Lincolnshire for Food Gillian Richardson said: “We’re thrilled to be organising the food, drink and hospitality awards again this year. But out of all the different categories, it is the ‘People’s Choice Award’ that businesses most want to win.

“It’s the second year that I have been involved in these awards, and the ‘People’s Choice Award’ is about giving the vote to consumers. It would not be possible without the support of Lincolnshire Co-operative which is sponsoring the award.

“I’d like to invite everyone to cast their vote on the Select Lincolnshire for Food website, and help us find the most rewarding business worthy of the People’s Choice Award.”

To vote visit www.selectlincolnshire.com/members/Vote.aspx before Monday, January 19. All votes placed will be entered into a free prize draw for a hamper with local produce.

The winners will be announced during the Select Lincolnshire for Food Awards ceremony on Tuesday February 3, at The White Heather, Caenby Corner.
