Welcome to the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards 2023!
Now in its 10th year, the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards have become a well-recognised badge of excellence amongst customers and the food and drink community across the island of Ireland.
Our broad range of categories recognise a variety of quality products from retailers, wholesalers, foodservice and own label brands; we even have a Small Producers category, for companies with fewer than 10 staff and annual sales under €1million, with a significantly reduced entry fee.
This year's Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards product categories are now closed.
You can still enter the Performance Awards, which are completely FREE!

We were thrilled to discover that not only were we named ‘Christmas Retailer of the Year’, but we were the overall ‘Retailer of the Year’ at this year’s prestigious Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards. With 106 awards in total it is a testament to the incredible work of our teams who work across every facet of the buying process - from the buying admin support to the quality testing to the packaging design right through to the marketing.
Winning an Irish Quality Food & Drink Award is an endorsement that your brand/product reaches the very highest standards in terms of quality and taste.
It tells retailers, wholesalers and, of course, consumers that your brand is a cut above the rest.
We would highly recommend any food producer to enter. The level of expertise and the professionals involved in the whole process is an invaluable exercise for any food business.
The judges feedback is an extremely constructive insight from the food industry which gives you the knowledge your product does need to be a success on the retail market.
The Irish Quality Food Awards and the UK Quality Food Awards give you credibility,
they’re very highly thought of,
so it’s a great introduction to a new company just to be in the Awards.
We see quite a significant change in rate of sale after we put an Irish Quality Food Awards logo onto our packs. You can really see where consumers come looking for high quality products.
We have been producing great product for a number of years and award like this further enhances the confidence that we have in our bakery and our team.
Our success in the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards helped to open the door for us to very exciting business opportunities with a number of potential clients in the Republic.
