Now in its ninth year, the Derby Food & Drink Awards recognises and celebrates the city's vibrant and growing food and drink sector.

A glittering awards ceremony takes place at the stunning Derby Roundhouse on 9th October 2017 where hundreds of guests will enjoy an indoor food & drink market and live demonstrations.

Nominations are judged on quality, not quantity, so make sure you consider your nominations carefully - last year over 2,500 nominations were collected!

When the nomination period ends, judges for each category (see Sponsorships) sample each finalist to select a winner.
