Celebrating Lincolnshire’s food, drink and hospitality businesses in 2020
Lincolnshire Life has held our annual ‘Taste of Excellence’ Awards for more than 20 years. Understandably, this year, we have had to adapt how we champion and highlight the region’s food, drink and hospitality sectors but we still want to celebrate the fantastic businesses on our doorstep.
We know the recognition that these awards provide makes a substantial impact on local businesses and there has never been a better time for us to give our support.
We are calling on our readers and clients of these businesses to give your nominations in these new look 2020 Awards. We have new categories highlighting our current challenging times and how businesses have adapted to cope. We are especially interested to hear your reasons for nominating your heroes, favourites and those who have gone above and beyond your expectations.
However, we will have to postpone our Awards Evening. For 2020, instead of our ceremony in November, we will hold our next celebration when it is safe to do so. Your 2020 Award Winners will be announced in a special supplement in the December issue of Lincolnshire Life Magazine.
We are sorry that this year we can’t invite you to celebrate with all our finalists due to ongoing restrictions, but we hope ‘A Taste of Excellence’ will come back bigger and better next year!
