The Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards are back – and this year they feature a host of new categories.

The categories have been designed so that as many food and drink businesses as possible have a chance to enter.

The 12 award categories are:

  • Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards Overall Winner

  • Outstanding Achievement Award

  • Best Café

  • Excellence in Customer Service (Derby and Derbyshire)

  • Best for Sustainability

  • Best for Drinking

  • Most Family Friendly

  • Best Newcomer

  • Best Experience

  • Best Country Pub/Restaurant (outside the city)

  • Most Innovative

  • Best Outside

Nominations, which open on Friday 30th July, are welcomed from members of the public, business leaders in the city and food and drink establishment owners.

The entries will then be used to select the three finalists in each category, who will be announced on Wednesday 8th September.

The Excellence in Customer Service category will be narrowed down to six finalists, with the winner being voted for by the general public.

The Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards overall winner and the Outstanding Achievement Award will be chosen by the Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards steering group.

Representatives from each sponsor will judge their category, which involves ‘mystery shopping’ at all three finalists and scoring against defined criteria.

The winners will then be announced at a ceremony at The Chocolate Factory on Monday 18th October.

The awards have already attracted an enviable line-up of sponsors, including Denby, The Derby Food 4 Thought Alliance, Peak Radio and White Peak Distillery.
