“We wanted to create a set of new Dorset food & drink awards that were all about the genuine, small, independent business. Those that have a fabulous product and work exceptionally hard to make it financially viable for themselves and their families. Those Dorset businesses that truly believe and execute being local in every sense of what they do. We want to celebrate and share their achievements.” Barbara Cossins
