Each year we are astounded by the number of nominations we receive for these prestigious awards, and this year was no exception.

With the impact of coronavirus and lockdown hitting food and drink businesses great and small across the county, it is heart-warming to read of the kindness and support Kent people have shown.

Our 2020 finalists are outstanding examples of businesses we are proud to support in Kent. Keep reading to find out who made the cut. The second round of judging is now underway, and our deserving winners will be announced in the January edition.
