British food and drink has never been more popular and exports continue to be a key area for growth.

This category is for companies that are entering new markets, creating targeted products or growing sales in established markets. It is open to manufacturers but also to intermediary companies.

The judges will look at achievement and ambition relative to the size of the company, not just the largest sales figures!

Please note that this category aims to celebrate the success of UK based companies exporting UK produced food and drink and therefore:

  • For manufactures, 75% of your product must be produced in the UK
  • Consolidators/intermediaries – you may only include British produced brands within your submission
