The Food & Drink Heroes Awards support, celebrate and recognise the inspiring stories of Food & Drink entrepreneurs across the UK!

Food & drink contributes £31.1bn to the economy and research shows that Britain’s food and drink sector continues to forge ahead at home and abroad despite current economic and political uncertainty.

Having launched the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in 2012, which now receives over 5,500 applications annually and a community of circa 20,000 entrepreneurs, we’ve been overwhelmed with outstanding food & drink entrepreneurs entering and engaging with the programme. So much so, that we decided they needed their own platform.

Food & Drink Heroes champions the pioneers of change behind some of Great Britain’s most exciting emerging and established food and drink brands and ventures.
