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 8th 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 also new for this year BBC Good Food's Feast at 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.

Applications for shows in 2017 - 2018 are now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part and congratulations to our winners...
