Each year at the Quality Food Awards, we found that we were receiving more and more Christmas products, but retailers were unable to really shout about their wins for the crucial Christmas selling period.
So this year we will be announcing our Christmas winners earlier than the other awards in order to give you an extra boost for this most busiest time of year and ensure you can get that Christmas Quality Food Awards logo on pack before the big seasonal rush.
