Both local firms were competing against companies from across Yorkshire for the awards.

The awards were given out after three days of judging by a panel of experts who included top chefs, food writers, supermarkets buyers, who carefully judged each of the several hundred products in turn.

Head Judge, Nigel Barden said:

“We’ve tasted and judged some fantastic products over the last week.  As ever, the standard has been incredibly high and at times it’s been difficult to decide on a single winner for each category.  The entries are a great reflection of the food and drink scene in Yorkshire and it’s a pleasure to return each year to find it thriving.”

As well as Nigel, the panel included local chefs Steph Moon from Rudding Park and Josh Whitehead from the Harewood Food and Drink Project as well as Gilly Robinson from Malton Cookery School and Adrian Boswell from Selfridges in London who made the trip North to sample what the County had to offer.
