Welcome to the all-new Kent & Medway Food & Drink Awards

We are proud to support many clients in the food and drink sector here in Kent & Medway and so when we heard about a new awards programme to celebrate their success, we decided to get involved.

We are delighted to be sponsoring the Tea/Coffee Shop of the Year Award and members of the public have until 5pm on 10th January to nominate the businesses or individuals they would like to see crowned.

The Awards are being organised by the KM Media Group and they say:

“We felt it was time to raise a huge cheer for the people behind Kent and Medway’s buzzing food and drink industry – and so these awards were born.  With nominations made by the public and the winners selected by a panel of independent industry experts, the aim of the awards is to give credit where it is truly due to the rising stars, industry trendsetters and unsung food heroes. So, whatever your food and drink favourites - be it a baker, a farmer, a cafe, a village pub, or a champion of your local community - we want to hear from you!”

The finalists will be announced in KM Group newspapers and Kent Online on Wednesday,  January 17, 2024, and the winners will be revealed at a reception at the Spitfire Cricket Ground, Canterbury on  Tuesday, February 27, 2024.

Any food and drink business or individual located in Kent is eligible and nominating is online and easy - just follow the link to say what makes them stand out from the culinary crowd.

The three businesses or individuals with the most nominations per category will then be shortlisted and the winners chosen by a panel of independent, industry-expert judges headed up by well-known chef and restauranteur Richard Phillips.
