Annual celebration of local produce

Dorset Food & Farming Awards

The Love Local Trust Local Food & Drink Awards were created from an ethos born in 2018 by the Cossins Family to promote quality, honesty and proximity in all the food and drink that we buy and consume.

The inaugural awards took place in 2020 amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, highlighting the need to embrace all that is “local” as we strive to feed our families with nutritious food and drink that has known provenance we can all trust.

These awards are 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 12 categories for you to choose from, find yours and enter from Monday 28th June 2021. If your business is lucky enough to qualify for more than one of our awards, then please enter all of them by 5pm on Monday 27th September 2021!
