A toast to the winners of the Sussex Food and Drink Awards

Waiting for Video...

The Sussex Food and Drink Awards are the only awards that highlight, recognise and support Sussex farmers and producers and the businesses which sell and promote their produce.

Sussex is blessed with a wealth of glorious food and drink, from the beautiful green downs and its coastal waters to the huge number of creative and hard-working producers and manufacturers in the county, who are creating award-winning food and drink every day.

Olympian patron Sally Gunnell OBE and Danny Pike from BBC Sussex hosted the awards banquet, a fabulous seven-course Sussex feast at the Amex Stadium on Thursday 31st January and our wonderful sponsors presented prizes to the winners.
