Your chance to shine

Calling all food and drink innovators – The FoodTalk Awards are back!

Lots of food awards focus on nothing more than great taste. Which is fine – we love a delicious cheese or chutney as much as the next person – but what about innovation? What about those brilliant people who are pushing boundaries, trying out new ideas and doing the seemingly impossible in the name of culinary adventure? 

From unusual ingredients, inspired flavour combinations and magical free-from products, to the packaging and tech that’s shaping the kitchens of tomorrow, food tech innovation is changing the way we eat, cook and live forever.

The FoodTalk Show meets these incredible people every week, so the team behind the radio programme decided it was time the heroes of food tech got some recognition for their game-changing work.

The result was the hugely successful FoodTalk Awards 2017, which took place at a fabulous venue on the South Bank, as part of London Tech Week in June. If you didn’t make it on the big night, check out London Tech Week’s video here

So, the next question is: how do you get involved in The FoodTalk Awards 2018? (And trust us, you’ll want to, it’s going to be bigger, bolder and even more brilliant next year.)

Entries open on 1 September and you can find out everything you need to know on the FoodTalk Awards website. You’ve got until midnight on 30 November 2017 to submit your entry, so don’t delay – start winning today!

In the meantime, visit to tune in to The FoodTalk Show at 4pm every Thursday or listen again to previous episodes. The show is also available as a podcast via iTunes and all major directories.
