The Quality Food Awards have recently appointed Tania O’Donnell as our new full-time Editor. She will help to further push the Quality Food Awards web portal, launched in 2015, which has played a key role in supporting the expansion of the awards. It has quickly become the hub for an audience of foodies and industry professionals alike, providing an entertaining and authoritative platform for high quality content from the development of great food and drink, through to regular updates, discussions and news about our portfolio of Quality Food and Drink Awards.
This year we have launched the Christmas Quality Food Awards to accommodate the large number of Christmas products entered into the Quality Food Awards each year. The Christmas Quality Food Awards will take place in October 2017, giving companies the opportunity and time to market their Christmas Q wins on pack and in print, prior to their launch in store later that year. With mountains and mountains of mince pies in stores on the lead up to Christmas, a mince pie with a Q Award winning logo speaks volumes to the consumer of today.
This year we are launching the Foodservice Quality Food Awards which will include categories from last year's Cafe Quality Food Awards and catering products from the Wholesale Quality Food Awards. These awards will celebrate innovation in product development in the Foodservice sector, whilst judging with the same robust and fair judging process of the Quality Food Award. Results will be announced in London in October.
The Wholesale Quality Food Awards have been rebranded in 2017 to the Local Shop Quality Food Awards to make them more relevant in today's market. Look at our new site to see what has changed. Local Shop Quality Food Awards will still be announced before the Retail Industry Awards on the Thursday 28th September.
A new category for this year for the unsung heroes of our industry. Judges will look at how the nominated person has contributed to delivering their company's strategic goals through their specialism. Keep your eyes peeled on our site for when entries open later in the year. The award will be announced at the Quality Food Awards in November.
