About The Quality Food Awards

The Quality Food Awards – recognising the finest food products, available to purchase in the UK.

Now in its 44th year, the Quality Food Awards are the longest-running, most prestigious food awards in the UK; they cast a spotlight on products that offer fine ingredients, great taste and aroma, beautiful packaging and amazing value for money.

The Quality Food Awards are not just about new products - our judges are looking to reward excellence in food and soft drinks, regardless of when a product was launched. If it tastes great and looks great, a well-established product is as eligible to win an award as one that was launched in the past 12 months. We do ask that the product is on sale by the time the award results are announced.

Winning a Quality Food Award is an outstanding achievement. It means that your product has been judged to be the very best by renowned industry experts – and that really is something to shout about.

Entries are closed for the 2023 Quality Food Awards.

What makes us different?

Here at the Quality Food Awards we pride ourselves on our stringent judging process, and the things that make us different. It is really important to us that every entrant finds value in participating in the awards:

  • We don't blind taste
    We consider all aspects of your product(s), including packaging and presentation

  • Feedback
    If our judging panel believe that there is some room for improvement with your product, we think you deserve to know so you can take that feedback on board as part of your product development process

  • Free use of logos
    We know how much of a difference to sales it can make when consumers see the Quality Food Awards logo on product packaging, so we send all winners a logo that can be used on your product packaging and marketing materials entirely free of charge

Judging panel

Here at the Quality Food Awards, we have dedicated a huge amount of time over the years to building up an enviable panel of judges from all corners of the industry. 

We have a reputation for being the most prestigious food awards in the UK, and the collective experience and expertise of our judges means that the winning products in each of our categories are truly deserving of their awards.

Similarly, the detailed feedback that every entrant receives after the awards has proved to be truly invaluable and has aided in product development for a number of producers and retailers across the UK.
