Select Lincolnshire Awards 2015: The shortlist

The businesses shortlisted for this year’s Select Lincolnshire Food, Drink and Hospitality Awards 2015 have been announced.

The award ceremony, which will be held on February 3 at the White Heather at Caenby Corner, will see the winners announced for 14 different categories including the Venue of the Year which has been sponsored by Lincolnshire Business magazine.

The People’s Choice Award segment has generated over 1,600 votes from shoppers and food lovers across the country – this is up 266% from last year.

The winning businesses will be chosen by a panel of judges and announced at the ceremony.

Gillian Richardson, Business Development Manager for Select Lincolnshire for Food, said: “Every year we look to recognise and reward the people behind Lincolnshire’s billion pound food and farming sector.

“The judging panel found it really difficult to shortlist the entries for each award category, because every application had its own strengths.”
