With only a month to go, it’s time to sharpen those pencils, polish those keyboards and get your Love Local Trust Local award entry into the team
For those not in the know, these awards (now in their third year) were created by farmers for farmers. They celebrate the very best in local Dorset production and the team want to hear from all the growers, producers, farmers, dairy producers, fishermen, brewers, bakers, shop owners or hospitality trades that have a wonderful food story to tell.
Dorset is an amazing food county that celebrates some wonderful high achieving food and drink brands; Dorset Cereals, Hall & Woodhouse Brewery, Dorset Blue Vinny, Purbeck Ice Cream, Black Cow Vodka, Langham Winery, Dorset Knob and many more from the treasure box of amazing Dorset producers.
Love Local Trust Local is more than just an awards ceremony, it’s a complete food movement. If your food has a great story then you’re bound to fit into one of the 15 categories: Cheese, Dairy, Meat, Fish, Sweet and Savoury Bakery, Dorset Drinks, Honey, Jams, Chutneys and Condiments, Innovation & Diversification, Conservation & Sustainability, Business Development and Growth, Farm Shops and Hospitality.
An award and a label
Love Local Trust Local is a food label to watch. The team are sharing their love for local food with the wider community so that they can continue to educate and encourage people to eat better, be healthier, live longer and shop from small, independent businesses near them. Farmers and producers need a voice, and these awards are supporting all of them.
To be part of it all, enter today. You have one month and counting …
