With the continued COVID-19 restrictions throughout Ireland, the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards team have made the difficult but necessary to decision to cancel the product award categories for 2020. This decision has not been taken lightly.  We would have loved to have been able to celebrate the best of Irish produce with you all once again, but ultimately the safety of our entrants, judges and team members is our top priority. We fully support the efforts of the Irish government to stop the spread of the virus throughout our community. 

We remain committed to celebrating excellence in Irish food and drink wherever possible, and we will proceed with rewarding outstanding people and projects in 2020 via our performance awards. Categories include; Best Initiative by a Foodservice Provider, Own Label Range of the Year, Rising Star Award and Supplier of the Year. For 2020 we have also included two COVID-19 specific categories to highlight the excellent work which has taken place during this difficult time. 

You can view the Performance Awards shortlist here, where you will find details of all the fantastic individuals and companies that have made this year's shortlist. 

Winners will be announced in a virtual ceremony taking place on Friday 11 December. Register to attend the awards here

We would like to thanks our sponsors, entrants and judges for the continued support and understanding they have shown throughout this year. 

The Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards recognise and celebrate the best in retail, wholesale and foodservice food and drink products available in Ireland.
