The Weetabix Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards is back for its fourteenth year with another sensational set of categories and sponsors.

Celebrating excellence within the local food and drink sector, the awards recognise all that is great about local produce and drink, and reward those who work so hard to achieve their best.

Two debut categories have been announced: the Healthy Food and Wellbeing Award which welcomes a fresh sponsor, Delapré Abbey; and the Farming Environmental Award sponsored by Weetabix for the Weetabix Growers Group.

Rachel Mallows emphasised at the launch that partners and supporters are asking foodies of the county to buy local, shop local and eat locally and help the sector not just recover, but thrive after the past two years.
