Producers Bursary Awards

The winners of the coveted BBC Good Food Shows Producers’ Bursary Awards Scheme have been announced! The BBC Good Food Show team have been searching the UK and Ireland to find the most outstanding artisan food and drink producers they can. The campaign calls for applications from small artisan producers with companies carefully shortlisted and all entries tasted at the BBC Good Food Test Kitchens by a team of experts. The deserving winners win the opportunity to exhibit free of charge at the prestigious BBC Good Food Show in Harrogate or Birmingham.


The bursary scheme has had a significant impact on many small companies over the past few years including The Northern Dough Company who are now available nationally. Mo's Cookie Dough is now sold through Whole Foods, and Kate Jenkins, the owner of Gower Cottage Brownies, who claims that entering the awards was the best thing she ever did for her business.

The BBC Good Food Show Producers’ Bursary Award scheme, managed by Katy Truss of Fabulous Food Finds is now in its eighth successful year and rewards the most deserving, small, independent artisan producers. To be eligible they must be less than three years old with a low annual turnover and most importantly must be able to impress the judges.

Visitors to the BBC Good Food Shows will be able to meet, taste and buy from this year’s impressive winners shown below.

The Winners

BBC Good Food Show Harrogate HIC, Spring 5 - 7 May 2017

  • Dr Wills (Newcastle) - Founded by Dr Will Breakey and restauranteur Josh Rose, they set up Dr Will’s clean sauces because they couldn’t find a healthy alternative to the everyday sauces that we all know and love.
  • Kitsch Confections (Milton Keynes) - They create mouthwatering and naturally flavoured marshmallows, that are free from egg, and gluten in a wide range of exciting flavours.
  • The Bridge Lodge (Wales) - by foraging the ingredients by hand from their land in Wales, they make jars of delicious wild garlic pesto & wild garlic salt. "With each of our products we not only want to create a tasty, seasonal product but more importantly increase awareness and appreciation of what nature grows around us."

BBC Good Food Show Birmingham NEC, Summer 15 - 18 June 2017

  • A Little Bit Food Co (Bromyard) - Combined with Sophie's love of cooking, she continues to be inspired by the incredible versatility of fresh herbs. These amazing plants transform her sauces & dressings into something a little bit more extraordinary!
  • Fravocado (South Devon) - Made by Becky in South Devon, it was born after she gave up dairy in 2014 and struggled to find a replacement for ice cream which wasn’t full of sugar and additives.
  • The Dukkah Company (Cornwall) - Inspired after travelling through North Africa, and making and serving dukkah blends to friends and family, The Dukkah Company was born.

Entries for the Winter 2017 and Summer 2018 Shows will open in June, so if you know of a fabulous small producer who needs a nudge, or are a small producer yourself that would like to apply, get in touch with Katy Truss.
