Taste of the West Awards

The Taste of the West Awards programme has been promoting and supporting the South West food and drink industry for over 30 years. It has grown to become the most prestigious food and drink awards programme in the South West - don't miss out on your chance to be part of it.

Each and every year we work with around 350 food and drink producers who enter their South West food and drink products into our awards programme. So whenever you see a shiny awards logo on a product, you know it has been tried and tested by our panels of independent industry experts.

We also run an annual awards programme for hospitality and retail businesses. Each year our team of judges visit around 400 establishments across the South West, evaluating the quality and provenance of the food and drink they serve and/or sell.


Meet our 2023 Champion Award Winners

In 2023 our expert panel of judges meticulously tasted and evaluated an impressive array of products, from mouthwatering cheeses to exquisite wines, and visited the best of the region's food and drink establishments across both the hospitality and retail sectors.

We announced the champion winners of all 42 categories at our awards ceremony, which was held at Sandy Park last November; our special thanks and appreciation go to our food & drink suppliers for contributing to the evening's menu.
