Annual celebration of local products that are grown, produced, caught, reared, brewed, crafted or cooked here in Dorset

The Love Local Trust Local Food & Drink Awards were created in 2018 by the Cossins Family in order to promote quality, honesty and proximity in the Dorset food and drink that we buy, consume and enjoy with our families & friends.

In 2021 we were proud to host the only face to face Dorset food & drink awards of the year. Our inaugural awards took place virtually in 2020, amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, a time that has continued to highlight the need to embrace all that is “local” as we try and feed our families with nutritious food and drink that comes from a place we know and trust.

The Love Local Trust Local Awards are proud to recognise and celebrate small, independent businesses including farmers and fishermen, that genuinely support and embrace everything “local” in their food & drink production. Companies entering these awards must source their main ingredients from within 30 miles of their Dorset location.


We have 15 categories for you to choose from, find yours and enter from Sunday, 1st May 2022. If your business is lucky enough to qualify for more than one of our awards, then please enter all of them by midnight Wednesday 7th September 2022!
