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 open - please make your initial application by completing the online form here:

Before you apply, make sure you meet the following criteria:

- Company must be no older than 10 years old

- Turnover no higher than £300,000

- Company must not have attended a BBC Good Food Show before

- Company must produce/ manufacture their own range of products in the U.K. or Ireland

- Product must be a retail product (street food/ food to go offerings are unsuitable for the scheme)

Any questions regarding the scheme or application process should be directed to Katy Truss of Fabulous Food Finds, who manages the awards on behalf of the BBC Good Food Shows, on

If you know of a small artisan producer you think deserves to be recognised, pass on their details or tell them about the Producers Bursary Awards.
