About NFU Mutual Ashford, Tenterden & Whitfield

With over a century of experience in protecting the needs and interests of local communities, farmers and commercial clients, we at NFU Mutual Ashford, Tenterden and Whitfield Agency are proud to continue sponsoring the Taste of Kent Awards.

Across Kent and East Sussex, we continue to support a number of manufacturers, growing and developing outstanding quality produce across the region. Many of them are making huge strides by innovating and diversifying into new, exciting areas, and this award will help to showcase their hard work. It is with great pleasure to support the English Wine Category and with 61.5% of all UK based vineyards in the South East, it is the perfect time to continue to celebrate this growing industry.

The below is a quote from NFU Mutual Ashford, Tenterden and Whitfield Agency explaining why they are keen to support the Taste of Kent Awards:

The Taste of Kent Awards, is the perfect showcase for displaying the excellent quality and care that goes into the fantastic produce that originates in Kent. The Awards have always highlighted how important local food and beverages are to Kent, and we are keen to continue to support the awards that are so important to the communities around us.
