We reveal the winner of Best Local Industry Supplier

This category aims to celebrate our local suppliers and producers who play such a vital role in the food or drink community. The winner of this category can be an individual or company consistently providing reliable, quality products to customers and always looking for the opportunity to go a few steps further.

The finalists...

Hessian Coffee

Neil Clark and Niall McCrae, partners at The Hessian Coffee Company, have years of experience in providing the best in coffees, teas, equipment, training and products to the hot beverage local industry. Their family ethos is passion, honesty, customer focus and fun.

Hedges Farm Shop

Hedges Farm is family-run and dedicated to providing produce that’s grown here, not flown here. Our aim has always been supplying quality home-produced and locally-sourced meat.

Bridget B’s, Watton-at-Stone

We have grown and diversified into supplying many of Hertfordshire’s top eateries with an extensive range of top quality meats, much of which is born and reared on our own farms and all prepared by our master butchers. We go the extra mile to keep our customers, and most importantly their customers, happy.

And the winner is...

Hedges Farm Shop

Our judges loved the ethos behind this award-winning family farm shop. They rear their lamb and beef themselves on the farm, as well as turkeys at Christmas! Their butchers are friendly and knowledgeable, offering advice on the best cuts and how to cook them!
