If you are a wholesaler – delivered or cash and carry – product manufacturer, own label or branded supplier actively driving business in the food service sector, then the Chefs’ Choice awards are for you.

Enter here

These awards are judged by chefs for chefs; they are easy to enter and will provide a mechanism for all suppliers – fresh and frozen, chilled and ambient – to secure stand out and gain extensive positive marketing exposure to gain new and reinforce existing customer relationship.

Chefs’ Choice will independently validate product quality, value and taste and will enable all of the category Winners, Highly Rated and Finalist entrants to use – for free – the high profile logo endorsement supported by The Grocer, Restaurant, The Morning Advertiser and Food Manufacture media brands.


You will need to enter a finished food product that is ambient, chilled, fresh, frozen or part baked to take part.

We have 27 categories for you to choose from, including: Cheese and Dairy Products; Finished Desserts and Gateau; Preserves; Vegetarian Ready Meals and Portions and Hot Beverages – to name but a few.

Chefs will prepare the products in a professional kitchen following portion guidance and recommended prep, serving suggestions and cooking times. A specially selected panel of chefs, nutritionists, food technologists and development chefs will put each entry through its paces on a stringent range of agreed criteria.

Entry deadline is Monday 20th November.
