Winners of The Taste of Kent Awards 2021 will be announced soon and we're supporting White Cliffs Country food and drink businesses all the way!
The annual awards are open to all food and drink businesses located in Kent, so we're championing the rich bounty of food and drink produced in White Cliffs Country together with the fantastic food and drink businesses that we have in Deal, Dover, Sandwich and the surrounding villages.
Breakwater Brewery & Taproom, Dover
Amongst those businesses in White Cliffs Country that have been shortlisted in the prestigious awards are Provenance Potatoes, Deal (Sustainable Food and Drink Business of the Year); Walmestone Growers, Wingham (Grower of the Year) and The Meatball Company, Deal (Diversification Award).
The Taste of Kent Awards, which have been running for more than 17 years, are very important for the local food and drink industry in Kent. Helping to ensure that Kent food and drink businesses gain the special recognition they deserve, the awards also enable businesses to raise awareness of themselves and interact with the general public by encouraging them to vote for their favourite foods, drinks and establishments. The awards are facilitated by Produced in Kent, which represents more than 300 growers, producers, manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, pubs, restaurants and other food-serving hospitality outlets in the county.

The 2021 Taste Of Kent Awards will formally recognise the hard work, dedication and professionalism of the local independent food and drink industry in its response to the challenges of the pandemic and, ultimately, will celebrate the outstanding food and drink we have in the county and promote its amazing businesses.
With the public having been able to take part in the voting process, White Cliffs Country followers have been able to support food and drink businesses across Deal, Dover and Sandwich with nominations and votes. The shortlist of all finalists from across Kent is available on the Produced in Kent website, with the winners to be announced at a virtual ceremony on 11th May.
