We use the label ourselves and now share it with carefully selected Dorset businesses that share our ethos and also believe in local, well-sourced food from our fabulous county including our winners and runner-up’s of the Love Local Trust Local Awards!
In the summer of 2020, despite the Covid-19 pandemic, we launched the inaugural Love Local Trust Local Awards for Dorset Food & Drink producers, farmers and fishermen. We were hesitant at first and tempted to delay our plans. However, what better time than in the midst of a global health crisis to promote buying and consuming local food & drink with provenance you can trust?
The inaugural awards received not only some fabulous entries but were deemed a huge success by our sponsors and judges who thoroughly enjoyed the process and created significant interest in the press and from many Dorset businesses wanting to be involved. No mean feat in the midst of a pandemic! The Cossins family are passionate about Dorset, Food & Drink and advocates of promoting British farming and the collaboration of small, local businesses working together. Their intention is for the Love Local Trust Local Awards to grow and to be around for many years to come in the support of all that is Dorset!
If you would like to be part of this, please take a look at our categories, choose the ones for you and complete the entry form.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Love Local Trust Local food & drink family.
