The Northwest Fine Food Awards

The first stage of the North West Fine Foods awards took place on Thursday at Blackburn Rovers Football Club.

The Fine Foods awards raise the profile of local food, with North West suppliers having their produce judged by a team of some of the food world’s most respected names.

The expert team faced the tough challenge of tasting their way through over 500 local delicacies to searching for the very best that our region has to offer, with their final decisions being influenced by quality, taste, texture and appearance.
