All retailers, food producers and manufacturers across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are invited to enter products for the chance to achieve industry acclaim in the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards.

Now in their fourth glorious year, the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards recognise excellence in products available to Irish consumers, and with categories enhanced for 2016, there are even more opportunities to impress the team of expert judges.

Once again, the judging will take place over four weeks in June and July at the Dublin Institute of Technology’s School of Culinary Arts and Food Technology. The results will be announced at a gala dinner in September at the Round Room at the Mansion House.

The awards themselves are organised into two distinct sections: Irish Quality Food Awards – products for the multiple and independent grocery retail market and the Irish Quality Drink Awards – alcoholic drinks for the retail sector. Following the success of its inaugural year, the Irish Café Quality Food Awards has also been launched again to recognise excellence in foodservice.

Full category descriptions are detailed on the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards website:irish.qualityfoodawards.com and the Irish Café Quality Food Awards website: irishcafe.qualityfoodawards.com.

Entries for the awards, which are once again headline sponsored by innovative packaging company Graphic Packaging International, will be accepted until 25 May 2016 and judging will take place from 23 June to 14 July 2016.
