Hosted by celebrity restaurant critic Jay Rayner, the winners will be announced on Thursday 15 September 2022 at The Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.

Chief Executive of the Food and Drink Federation Karen Betts OBE said:

“This year’s awards bring together over 200 nominees across 19 categories, showcasing the very best of our industry. The judges had an invidious task in choosing winners from an extremely strong field – from companies driving new sustainability initiatives to championing employee wellbeing, as well as embracing new technologies and supporting cutting-edge skills development in their teams.

“The food and drink sector is based within communities right across the UK’s nations and regions, and these awards really demonstrate how our great companies continue to bring great products to consumers in challenging times. Good luck to all the brilliant nominees!”
