Rising Star

About the category

This award recognises the excellence of the region’s next big thing. We’re looking for the new faces of Yorkshire food and drink entrepreneurship. If you are a new business that has started trading in the last 24 months, this is your time to shine. You might be a kitchen table start up, a new restaurant or even bringing something completely different to the sector. Whatever your business, and as long as you are less than two years old, we want to hear about you.

Congratulations to our Shortlisted entries
