Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards

The Mallows Company is the proud organiser of the annual Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards, a competition which celebrates all that is great about local produce and drink, recognising excellence within the county’s dining venues and rewarding those who work so hard within the culinary sector.
In the seven years to date, we have overseen the successful growth of the competition from four categories to eighteen, including ‘Restaurant of the Year’, ‘Young Chef of the Year’ and ‘Local Food Hero of the Year’ and secured sustained sponsorship from some of Northamptonshire’s major businesses within the sector including Carlsberg UK, Booker, Heygates Flour and Animal Feed, Weetabix, Whitworth Bros. Ltd and Whitco. The Awards were inspired and supported by Northamptonshire Enterprise Agency (NEP)
We manage every stage of the competition, including:
  • Staging a high-profile launch event attracting key sponsors and sector supporters
  • Attracting countywide participation from potential entrants and public engagement through interactive categories
  • Staging various judging processes including panel sessions, cook-offs and mystery shopping
  • Securing support from celebrity chefs, food writers and catering companies of national renown
  • Organising and hosting the black tie Awards Dinner for 450 people
  • Planning and co-ordinating all press and public relations activity

For the latest information for businesses that wish to trade food and drinks in the EU after exit:  The European Commission has published the following guidance: EC guidance on goods on the market.

 This addresses various aspects of EU Food law after exit, including clarification on their interpretation of goods placed on the market:  “If an individual food product has been placed on the EU-27 market before the withdrawal date, i.e. it has been (a) held in the EU27 for the purpose of sale, including offering for sale or any other form of transfer, whether free of charge or not; or (b) sold, distributed, of transferred by other forms to the EU27, this “stock” of food can continue to be sold, distributed or transferred in the EU27 as of the withdrawal date without the need for labelling changes”.
