Irish Quality Food & Drink Awards 2017 :: New Initiatives

New Initiatives

As you would expect from the industry's most prestigious awards programme, we do not rest on our laurels. We have launched a raft of exciting new initiatives to compliment, enhance and reinforce the credibility of the most sought after awards in the grocery sector.

Quality Food Awards Editor

The Quality Food Awards Portfolio has recently appointed Tania O’Donnell as our new full-time Editor. She will help to further push the Quality Food Awards web portal, launched in 2015, which has played a key role in supporting the expansion of the awards. It has quickly become the hub for an audience of foodies and industry professionals alike, providing an entertaining and authoritative platform for high quality content from the development of great food and drink, through to regular updates, discussions and news about our portfolio of Quality Food and Drink Awards.


Irish People’s Choice Quality Food Awards

In collaboration with Limerick Institute of Technology, the Irish Quality Food Awards will be awarding an Irish People’s Choice Quality Food Award. This will be selected from entered category winning products, following a rigorous, second phase of consumer panel judging run by LIT. The results of this years Irish ‘People’s Choice’ Quality Food Awards will be presented at LIT on Tuesday 25th April 2017.
 
 
 

Small Producer Irish Quality Food Awards

The Small Producer Quality Food Awards were launched last year with the aim to provide a platform for smaller producers to highlight their achievements in a hugely overcrowded marketplace. All small producers which enter the Irish Quality Food Awards are put forward for this prestigious award. Judged by an expert panel of judges, the products are put through their paces alongside all the other products. The winner of the Small Producer Irish Quality Food Awards 2017 will be announced on 26th October.
 
 

Irish Foodservice Quality Food Awards

This year we are launching the Foodservice Quality Food Awards which will include categories from last year's Irish Cafe Quality Food Awards. These awards will celebrate innovation in product development in the Foodservice sector, whilst judging with the same robust and fair judging process of the Irish Quality Food Awards. Results will be announced in Dublin in September. 

 


A new category for this year for the unsung heroes of our industry. Judges will look at how the nominated person has contributed to delivering their company's strategic goals through their specialism. This could be a producer, development chef or somebody in your innovation department.  Keep your eyes peeled on our site for when entries open later in the year. The award will be announced at the Irish Quality Food Awards on 26th October.
