Last night the nineteen winners of the deliciouslyorkshire awards 2010 were announced, featuring some of the most successful and original companies from around the region, following a record breaking 450 entries earlier this year.
The winners were announced at an exclusive ceremony held at Rudding Park, Harrogate.
The awards celebrate the elite of the region’s food and drink industry, showcasing fantastic local produce and commending the outstanding achievements of businesses and individuals from Yorkshire and Humber.
Anna’s Happy Trotters won the prestigious deliciouslyorkshire Supreme Product award, sponsored by the Proudfoot Group, for its Pork Belly after beating off stiff competition from all award winners who were collectively pitched against one another to win this desired commendation on the night.
The deliciouslyorkshire Champion, sponsored by Rollits, was awarded to James Mackenzie, Chef and Proprietor at The Pipe & Glass Inn in Beverley, East Yorkshire.
The judges considered James as someone who has gone above and beyond to promote and develop the region’s food and drink industry, infusing his passion and dedication, as well as influencing and inspiring staff and customers.
New for 2010, the Export Award sponsored by UKTI went to The Yorkshire Crisp Company in Sheffield who demonstrated its passion and determination to embrace global export markets.
ProperMaid in Huddersfield picked up the deliciouslyorkshire Outstanding Newcomer award sponsored by Montpelier Professional Ltd.
