Enter the Small Food Awards

The School of Artisan Food and Virtuous Bread are celebrating the best small food producers in the UK with this awards programme, with an entry deadline of 16 November 2016.

Small food producers are at the cutting edge of the food industry and yet, like all small businesses, they can struggle to get the recognition they deserve.

The Small Food Awards will celebrate artisanal microbusinesses in the following seven categories:

  • Chocolate
  • Real Bread
  • Charcuterie
  • Cheese
  • Viennoiserie
  • Cider

The spirit of these awards is "that products are at least party handmade and that entrants do not have access to a whole bunch of super expensive professional equipment that allows them to mechanise the process from end to end."

To be eligible:

There must be a maximum two people working in the business.  This includes volunteers as well as paid employees.

The products are produced in a home kitchen or other non-industrial environment, such as a garden shed, garage, sea container, railway arch, church hall kitchen, shared food prep space etc.
