The fifth Taste of Kent Awards, the brainchild of food and drink champions, Produced in Kent, attracted record levels of voting from members of the public, with a 42 per cent increase in votes over last year.

A panel of expert judges had whittled down the three most popular entries in each of the 12 public voting categories to one overall winner. And for the first time, in a 13th special category, the Taste of Kent Awards also acknowledged the county's most innovative food or drink product.
