Producers Bursary Awards

logoOnce again, we are helping to support food and drink producers in the artisan and speciality food industry by hosting the Producers Bursary Awards. Now in its 9th year, the campaign offers small, outstanding British and Irish producers the opportunity to exhibit for free at one of the BBC Good Food Shows. Past winners have included Gower Cottage Brownies, The Spice Kitchen, The Hebridean Food Co and Ochil Fudge Pantry who have all agreed it helped to grow their small food and drink businesses.

Free stand packages are available at the BBC Good Food Shows in Birmingham (Summer and Winter), Harrogate and Glasgow and Hampton Court Palace.

The application process begins with an online application form, careful shortlisting and then a tasting session at the BBC Good Food Magazine Test Kitchen with a panel of expert judges to decide on the winners of the awards.

Single variety Co (London) - Single Variety Co specialize in delicious jams and preserves. They find the perfect variety of every fruit for each recipe. 

Macneils Smokehouse (Worcestershire) - A small artisan producer based in Worcestershire, Macneils smokehouse produce small batches of smoked salmon in their professional smokehouse.
