Voting opens for popular Nantwich Food Awards
12th June 2017

Categories for this year’s Food Awards linked to the prestigious Nantwich Food Festival have been revealed, and online voting is now open. Click here to vote for the 2017 Food Awards.

The awards give the public an opportunity to vote for their favourite local eateries, retailers and producers that champion the diverse range of food offered in Nantwich and the surrounding Cheshire area.

The gala presentation evening that recognises the excellence of local food and drink businesses is now in its seventh year. 

Food Festival Director John Coulter always enjoys the awards. He said: “Nantwich is a real gem for food and drink, and the awards recognise the dedication of many people. These excellent businesses are vital for the local economy.

“This year we have amended the categories, but from the incredible feedback we received it was obvious that people enjoyed much of existing formula as well. Now it’s over to the public to pick their favourites.”

The new categories are: Best Newcomer (within the last 24 months), Best Local Producer (within 20 miles), plus an Excellence in Customer Care award.

Old favourites still up for grabs are: Best Restaurant (including hotel restaurant), Best Pub with Food, Best Cafe or Coffee Shop, and Beer Champion.

The much-loved awards recognise the contribution of local businesses that offer an incredibly diverse array of artisan food and drink products to Nantwich customers.

Some of the nominees will have stalls at this year’s Food Festival that takes place in early September, while some will organise events on their premises during the weekend.

Voting is now open for this year’s awards, and the online poll closes on 9th September.

Anyone who votes for the winner in any of the categories will be entered into a draw to win £40 to spend in that establishment. 

The awards night is scheduled to take place at Nantwich Civic Hall on Friday 27th October.
