This year, the Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards feature 12 categories, which have been designed to allow as many food and drink businesses as possible a chance to enter.

For 2023, as well as long-standing categories, such as Best Café, Best Pub, Best Bar and Best Country Pub / Restaurant, we see the return of the Best International category.

And to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Marketing Derby Food and Drink Awards, a special Anniversary Award will be presented to the establishment which, over the years, has shown consistent excellence.

And, as always, an award will be presented on the night recognising Outstanding Achievement.

Here is the full list of the 12 award categories:

Nominations, which open from today, are welcomed from members of the public, business leaders in the city and food and drink establishment owners.

Online voting closes on Friday 21 July. The entries will then be used to select the three finalists in each category, who will be announced on Tuesday, 8 August.

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, 9 October.

The awards have already attracted an enviable line-up of partners, including The Chocolate Factory, Derby College, Derbion, Denby Pottery, Royal Crown Derby, Wavensmere Homes, Balls2Marketing, Compendium Living, Omeeto, Sky Recruitment, University of Derby, White Peak Distillery and App4.
