Food Awards Winners Announced

The winners of the Bristol Good Food Awards 2012 for Local Producers have been announced following the Love Food Festival held at Brunel’s Old Station on Saturday, March 31.

After the general public decided on a shortlist of the best Bristol producers, respected food critics decided on the winners in a blind taste test.
