Food and farming awards: Success for Bury and Unicorn

Two Greater Manchester foodie institutions have been acknowledged in the national BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards this year.
Those leaders in organic produce, Chorlton’s Unicorn Grocery were named joint winners in the Best Local Food Retailer while the world famous Bury Food Market got yet another gong.
The high profile ceremony held in Birmingham this week also saw the campaigning chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall baned BBC Food Personality of the Year. He sounded pleased with the accolade saying: “I’m really thrilled and genuinely excited to receive this award…. especially as I was nominated by BBC radio listeners, that’s what makes something like this extra special. It’s been a very exciting and an intense year – so this award is genuinely coveted and I’m chuffed to bits.”
Among those presenting awards were Jamie Oliver, Jimmy Doherty, Angela Hartnett, Gregg Wallace, Alex James and Ainsley Harriott.
The full list of winners can be found here and a programme dediacted to the event will be broadcast on Sunday.
