Nine prestigious companies have already joined the Awards including Southeastern, Shepherd Neame, NFU Mutual Ashford, Tenterden & Whitfield, University of Kent, Crowe UK, EKC Group, Emergo, Oxbury and Southern Co-op with many having supported the awards for several years.

Floortje Hoette from Produced in Kent who run the awards explains, ‘The awards are a fantastic platform to showcase the tastiest food and drink we produce here in Kent, and the hardworking businesses behind it. Sponsoring the awards is a great opportunity for companies to get involved with the local food and drink community, whilst associating with the very finest produce, and showing support for a sector that contributes so much to our local economy, employment, the countryside and a greener future. I thank all of them for their continuing support.”

Open to any food and drink business located in Kent and Medway, the awards have been running for nearly twenty years –making them the longest running, and most prestigious food and drink awards in the South East. This year, the awards are taking on a slightly new format. All awards categories are self-nominated (entries open on 1 February 2023), the number of food product categories have been extended, a buyers guide is replacing the TOKA magazine and the awards ceremony on the 15th of June is preceded by a TOKA food and drink Fair, showcasing products of over 70 finalists. There is ample opportunity for sponsors throughout the awards process to engage with food and drink businesses and with key stakeholders in the sector.

Sponsorships are still available, please get in touch with Floortje Hoette for opportunities to become involved E: floortje.hoette@producedinkent.co.uk
