What next?

We will contact you in good time with all the relevant details and to advise the delivery schedule and venue where judging will take place.

Delivery of products and further instructions:

As mentioned you must attach a label with the correct product code to each of your products, this will ensure that the correct product is judged against the entry form.

When delivering your products please ensure that that they are sent in a suitable container (ie cool packs/ sealed bags / chilled boxes) to keep the product in good condition taking into account likely time in transit. Please also include product packaging where possible.

We will have a team of food economists onsite to cook your products, there is no need to cook these in advance. You should enclose cooking instructions in order to best showcase your product which the food economists will use. A sample template is shown above.

Sample numbers and size of sample:

The entry (entries) should be of sufficient size to be judged against the judging criteria.

If your product requires cooking/heating of any kind please ensure that 4 samples of EACH product entered are sent.

In the case of sausages please send 4 packs of sausages rather than 4 individual sausages.

In the case of large joints/birds, 2 samples will be sufficient.

If your product does not require heating/cooking then please ensure that 2 samples of EACH product entered are sent.

If your product requires any associated products to be supplied, please also include this/these.

Packaging entries:

For packaging entries, please enclose 2 samples of the packaging; with at least one example of the packaging to have the product enclosed.

Should you have any queries please contact the events team via email or call 01908 613323.

Many thanks for participating and good luck!

Important Notice Covid-19 / Government Rulings: The organisers have set up facilities to judge all products which are entered and delivered by participants to the Harper Adams University test kitchens location. However, we take no responsibility should the judging not take place at the venue or on the dates publicised, should any circumstances outside of our control mean the facilities are not available or withdrawn, or if any rulings by Government prevent the judging and assembly from going ahead.

A special thanks to our 2021 Awards partners

Event date is subject to ongoing Government rulings on public assembly and therefore the organisers reserve the right to make appropriate changes if required affecting the date or venue at their absolute discretion.
