Preparations for September’s popular Nantwich Food Festival are well under way, and the nominations for this year’s Food Awards have been revealed.

The annual awards are a chance for the public to vote for their favourite local outlets that champion delicious produce from Nantwich and the surrounding Cheshire area.

The showpiece presentation evening that recognises the excellence of local businesses is now in its sixth year.

Food Festival Director Roger Mills is delighted how the awards have developed. He said: “The awards salute the establishments which help to create a positive vibe about Nantwich. These businesses showcase our beautiful town and support the local economy by drawing visitors from a wide area.”

The six categories are: restaurant (including hotel restaurant), pub with food, cafe or coffee shop, beer champion, food and drink retailer (based in Nantwich town centre), and food and drink retailer in the wider Nantwich area.

The prestigious awards acknowledge local suppliers that contribute to the incredible array of independent artisan food and drinks available around Nantwich. Many of the nominees will also have stalls at this year’s Food Festival in September.

Six lucky members of the public can also enjoy a prize. Anyone who votes for the winner of each category will be entered into a draw to win a £40 voucher to spend at that outlet.

Voting for this year’s awards closes on 10th September, with a gala awards night scheduled to take place at Nantwich Town Football Club on Sunday 2nd October.
