In 2020, due to continued restrictions around the Covid-19 pandemic the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards made the difficult decision to cancel our product awards. We felt it was important to continue to celebrate the great work being done in our industry; focusing on the people and projects in 2020. We wanted to honour the champions throughout the industry from individuals to businesses who have shown commitment to their communities during the pandemic.

Our winners included three frontline heroes; Jack Hamilton, Mash Direct for his Business in the Community, Oonagh Monahan, Alpha Omega Consultants as Local Community Champion and Patricia Quinn, Birds Eye Ireland for her work in Health and Safety.

Last year, we also introduced Own Label Range of the Year, sponsored by Invest Northern Ireland, to our Performance Awards. Judges awarded this accolade to Dunnes Store Simply Better, praising specifically their "all about the people" focus.

The Performance Awards presentation is available to view on demand, alongside all our winners here. You can also view our Performance Awards Winners Brochure, with more details of each of our finalists.

Thank you to our sponsors Invest Northern Ireland, Dunnes Stores and ABP, all of our partners, judges and entrants and congratulations to all of last year's finalists and winners.

We will be launching the 2021 awards in February and look forward to tasting all your incredible products! Receive the latest notifications and updates about the awards by registering your details here
