About the category

The purpose of this award is to recognise the contribution of an individual to the Yorkshire food and drink industry. The award plays tribute to the champions of food and drink, in whatever capacity that may be – perhaps as a business owner, writer, influencer, chef, advisor, or brand developer – regardless of their role, it is the passion for the sector, region or business that we want to see shine through.

Sponsored by: Rollits


Rollits is one of the few law firms in the country that provides such a wide range of services to the food sector backed up by practical, hands-on experience of the food industry. On a regional level, they are very much involved in supporting the growth of local producers and suppliers, which they demonstrate through their membership with Deliciouslyorkshire. With offices in Hull and York, they are in the food centre of the UK, meaning that they are perfectly placed to give specialist legal advice to food businesses in the region.
