Quality Drink Awards 2017 :: Small Producer Entry

Small Producer Entry

The Small Producer Quality Food and Drink Awards are a unique collaboration between the Co-op and The Quality Food Awards.
They provide a great platform for small producers to fly their flag and showcase the passion, ideas, innovation and creativity behind many locally loved products.
This really is ‘THE MOMENT’ for British Food; smaller producers are leading the way in terms of innovation, and these awards are a celebration of British local and artisan food and drink, whilst bringing together the commitment and support of The QFA’s and The Co-op for smaller producers.
If you have fewer than 10 staff and annual sales of no greater than £2 million you are eligible to enter. Please complete this form for the discounted entry of £119 + Vat.    

The Process

1) Download your discount entry code here and then enter the main awards. Please enter your code into the "PROMO CODE" box on the first page of entry. The questions you will be asked at entry can be found here. All small producer products will be judged in the main Quality Food Awards or relevant sister awards and will receive feedback from our expert panel of judges. 

2)Follow the delivery instruction for judging to make sure your products are delivered correctly and judged at the correct time. We ask for 8 samples of your product in correct packaging. If this is too much or not possible please contact Sarah Ray.

3) You may be asked for further samples for the Small Producer judging with Co-op at the end of August but you will be given this request in good time for delivery. Just because you haven't be asked for more samples does not mean you have not been successful. 

4) Products will be judged by Co-op in the relevant categories. 

5) The Small Producer Shortlist will be announced after judging and all shortlisted products will get the chance to present at Co-op as well as further benefits, these can be found here.

6)The winners will be announced at an Awards Presentation on 9 November in the Court Suite, Grosvenor House Hotel, London before the main Quality Food Awards. 

If you have any questions on entry please do contact Sarah Ray and she will be able to help.
