Region’s top foodies up for recognition

The BBC’s food and farming awards return to our airwaves at the end of this week.

Radio 4’s annual awards ceremony
has become a firm favourite in the foodie year for me and it’s great to see three Greater Manchester companies in the running.
They are;
* British Elmwood Chicken, Co-operative Food, Manchester which is up for best retail initiative for its scheme to improve welfare for chickens
* Chorlton’s Unicorn Grocery which could be named best local food retailer.
* Bury Market which is in the running for the country’s best food market.
The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony, held at the NEC Birmingham tomorrow night when the BBC food personality of the year will also be revealed.
Follow the event with BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme online or on Sunday 12:30-13:00.
I’ll also update the blog with more on how our local competitors fare but for now – good luck all!
