Taste of Excellence Food and Drink Awards 2021 – Click here to vote!
We need your nominations – Celebrating Lincolnshire’s food, drink and hospitality businesses in 2021.
Lincolnshire Life has held its annual ‘Taste of Excellence’ Awards for more than 20 years. Last year we had to adapt how we champion and highlight the region’s food, drink and hospitality sectors due to the pandemic but in 2021 we want to return to a more recognised format for the competition. We want to celebrate the fantastic businesses and people on our doorstep; those who have faced and come through all the challenges of the past months; the start-ups and new ventures and the fantastic innovative products and services in our local marketplaces.
We know the recognition that these awards provide makes a substantial impact on local businesses and going forward it is essential that we all continue to give them our support.
We are calling on our readers and clients of these businesses to give your nominations in the 2021 Awards. We have expanded the number of categories this year, and our judges will be once again out this autumn making their assessments of the highest nominated businesses. We are especially interested to hear your reasons for nominating your heroes, favourites and those who have gone above and beyond your expectations.
For 2021, instead of our large scale Awards Night in November, we will hold a smaller scale celebration with safety uppermost in our minds. Your 2021 Award Winners will be announced in a special supplement in the December 2021 issue of Lincolnshire Life magazine.
