About Us

Entries are judged by our independent judging panel of over 100 industry experts, during an extremely rigorous judging process.

By winning an Irish Quality Food and Drink Award, and displaying the logo on the products, you are demonstrating to both existing and potential customers that you have earned the gold standard of excellence.

All entrants receive detailed feedback from our esteemed panel of judges, and winners also benefit from receiving a recognised accreditation that helps to facilitate new business and accelerate the process of breaking into the retail market.


Whether you are a new brand in need of exposure, an established organisation looking for recognition, or a well-known retailer, we have categories suitable for your product.

Entries for the product categories in this year's Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards are now closed.
