Welcome to the Quality Food Awards 2023

Now in its 44th year, the UK Quality Food Awards are the longest-running, most prestigious awards in the food and drink industry in the UK.

Our vast range of categories recognise a variety of quality products from retailers, wholesalers, foodservice and own label brands; we even have a Small Producers category, for companies with fewer than 10 staff and annual sales under £2million, with a significantly reduced entry fee.

Every single product entered will receive detailed feedback from our esteemed panel of judges, which can aid in product development.

This year, we are changing the names of our award results to Gold, Silver, and Bronze, instead of Winner, Highly Commended and Commended. The feedback on this is that it is a much more recognisable method of recognition for the consumer, and is far easier for entrants to communicate their success. We're really excited to hand out some awards! You can read more about it here.

2023 entries are now closed and judging is finished.

NEW for 2023: Introducing Bronze, Silver & Gold

A big change for the Quality Food Awards this year is a change to our scoring. For the past 43 years we have awarded Commended, Highly Commended and Winner awards, but this year we have renamed these to be Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Please note that our judges do not necessarily award a Bronze, Silver or Gold winner in each category, and they made the decision not to shortlist any products in some categories.
