2015 sees the return of the Hampshire Life Food & Drink awards for the 10th year, and it is set to be the biggest yet.

Taking place at The Elvetham Hotel, Hartley Wintney on Wednesday, November 25, 6:30pm – midnight, the 2015 awards are back again to give you the chance to nominate your favourite Hampshire foodie businesses.

These awards recognise the importance of the Hampshire food and drink industry and support the local food and drink businesses including suppliers and producers, small farming businesses, chefs, restaurants, pubs and hoteliers and people who care about our countryside and the future of our local environment. Nominations are all made by you, our readers. We want to hear about the fantastic cuts of meat you purchased from your local butcher or the business that you feel excels in customer service.

The closing date for all nominations is 8 September 2015. After nominations have closed our panel of judges will select a shortlist before an independent judging process takes place, in which finalists are visited or interviewed to establish the overall winner. All finalists will be invited to join local dignitaries, sponsors and clients at the black-tie evening awards ceremony. After a champagne reception and three-course meal the winners will be revealed. Our online system is easy to use and time friendly, so if you own a new establishment, are a local baker or own a farm shop make sure your customers and visitors are aware that you can be nominated. As always the panel of judges are not looking for the quantity of votes but the quality, so no matter the size of the business, everyone is in with a chance.

Follow us on twitter @hampshirelife to hear about the progress of the awards and let us know who you believe is a worthy winner with #HLFDA.
