We reveal the Food Producer of the Year 2016

Our county is home to internationally-known brands that send a taste of Kent around the world as well as innovative food producers who have seen a niche and seized their chance.

This award aims to recognise the best local food producers in Kent, celebrating the dedication that goes into creating the fabulous choice of fine foods available in our supermarkets, delicatessens or farm shops. We considered how produce is made, where it is made and how it is brought to the marketplace as we searched for our winner.

And the winner is...

Kent Collection, Cranbrook

Paulo Rigolli and Dalton Hopper. Smokehouse and hand-made traditional artisan charcuetrie. Call 01580 714978 or kentcateringltd@gmail.com
