The 10th annual Wexford Business Awards are now open for applications, with some exciting new award categories up for grabs. Celebrating its Diamond anniversary this prestigious event promises to be a highlight of the 2018 business calendar as a diverse range of Wexford businesses compete for the top spot in their category.
This year sees the addition of a Food & Beverage Producer award category to recognise the value of the food and beverage production sector in Wexford.
This is a dynamic sector which continues to innovate and evolve, keeping pace with ever-changing consumer needs, tastes and trends, not just at home but also abroad. Irish producers have established a position internationally as a leader in the field of taste innovation, quality assurance, ethical practice and inspirational branding. In more recent times we have seen a rise in food tourism, a concept that is being proactively pushed by tourism promotion agencies, as a key pillar in the visitor experience, both locally and nationally.
Mary French, Group Marketing Manager at Wright Insurance Brokers commented, ‘We are delighted to support the introduction of the Food & Beverage Producers award. We are closely aligned to this sector which is contributing greatly to the county’s economic growth, employment and food tourism.’
Wexford is home to many of the nation’s finest food and drink producers, who are punching well above their weight in terms of innovation and quality. These local food heroes now have an opportunity to be recognised by their peers in the local business community.
