Welcome to the 2014 Quality Food Awards

The Quality Food Awards are the most prestigious awards for food and drink products on sale in UK grocery outlets. What sets these awards apart is the impartiality and robustness of the judging process, which rightly sits at the heart of everything we do.


When I speak to people about the Quality Food & Drink Awards, they often tell me that they are the most difficult accolades to win in the food and drink industry. That’s something that I am actually very proud of as it highlights just how thorough the judging process is and underlines the true value of winning one of these awards.

Our judging panel is comprised of experts from many different industry disciplines, and our judges are a vital component of the validity and robustness of the results. Our judges take every aspect of a product into consideration – rewarding great flavours, high-quality ingredients, excellent value for money and outstanding packaging, which increases the retail success of a product.

The Quality Drink Awards will be presented during a drinks reception in the Court Suite at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane, which will be followed by the Quality Food Awards gala dinner and presentations. To find out more about the drink awards click here

This year’s QFAs will once again include the much sought after Quality Food and Drink Awards Retailer of the Year category, presented for the first time in 2013 and already one of most prized trophies in our awards lineup.

We’re delighted to continue our association with Benson Group, our headline sponsor, and Alaska Seafood as sponsor of the fish categories. I’d like to welcome on board Invest NI, who have joined us as a sponsor for the first time this year. Heartfelt thanks go to all of our sponsors and supporters. As ever, without your support, none of this could happen.

May I take this opportunity to wish all entrants the very best of luck. I very much look forward to receiving your entries by our deadline of 27 June.
