North Lincolnshire food and drink awards

Drink and food producers in North Lincolnshire have been nominated in an effort to find the public’s favorite dining locations in the county.  Among the local establishments nominated for possible recognition is the Melton Ross’s Tom Wood’s beer, Holme’s Pink Pink Farm, Kirton Lindsey, Elsham’s Pipers Crisps, and the Mount Pleasant Mill.

The public will get a chance to sample and choose the winners at the Select Lincolnshire and Tastes of Lincolnshire Partnership’s Food and Drink Awards.  The event is organised along with the assistance of Lincolnshire Life and aims to celebrate the best in the county.

For the first time, this year the partnership is asking the people to vote for a new award, Local Producer of the Year.  The award category is being sponsored by the Lincolnshire Co-operative.

Fans that want to vote for their favourites can do so by choosing a producer from the list that was created by the Taste of Lincolnshire members.  Many of the producers that are nominated for honours either have their base in Lincolnshire or often set up stalls in the area.

Partnership member Mary Powell stated that they are proud of the food that is produced in the region and they believe that North Lincolnshire has a passion for feeding its residents great food.  She added that they know that shoppers love the delicacies known around the region and they are waiting to see who the public picks as the best.

Supply chain manager for Lincolnshire Co-Op Nicola Berry stated that they are happy to be a sponsor of the Food and Drink Awards this year as they believe that the produce in the region is excellent and they are happy to be part of the celebration.  She added that the region has been officially named the Best British Food Spot.
