Future Food Awards receives hundreds of entries

The Future Food Awards, a partnership between Speciality Food, The FoodTalk Show and Bread & Jam, has been inundated with entries from innovators across the speciality food and drink industry.

Sue Nelson, founder of the FoodTalk Show and co-founder of the Future Food Awards, said, “We had the unenviable task (no, really!) of working our way through hundreds of entries for the Future Food Awards. If the criteria involved taste, the bar was set very high, but that was a given and not the definitive judgement for a finalist. These awards are about people passionately overcoming difficult challenges with imagination and creativity and coming up with stunning results. We were surprised by the quality of the entries, which to be honest, was way above even last year’s high standards. How we are going to come up with the winner in each category I am not sure, just to get this far is a huge achievement.”

The finalists in each category will be announced soon, and will go on to pitch to the full panel of judges, which includes Ollie Lloyd, CEO of Great British Chefs and William Chase, the founder of Tyrrell’s Crisps, Chase Distillery and Willy’s ACV at the Bread & Jam festival on 3rd October 2019 at the Institute of Directors in London’s Pall Mall to be in with the chance of being crowned the Supreme Champion.
