Editor, Elizabeth Barnett commented: “We are now in our eighth year of running and I feel so privileged to be a part of something that has been celebrating our fantastic food and drink industry for almost a decade. Hampshire has that special mix of land, weather, award-winning food and drink producers and growers and an excellent communication network that enables it to be one of the most successful counties in the country for food and drink production. This in turn of course leads directly on to our a vast array of excellent restaurants, cafés, pubs and hotels who are all dedicated to supporting Hampshire produce. Without the hard work and dedication of all of our finalists, we simply wouldn’t have a basis for these awards and I want to congratulate all our finalists in achieving so much and, most of all, for receiving the recognition from our readers.”
