Last Monday we attended the prestigious Taste of Staffordshire Good Food Awards – and what an evening it was! Apart from enjoying what was a delightful and accommodating event, Packington were also listed as finalists in the Local Food Producer of the Year category which was fantastic to be recognised and nominated for. Still on a high from our recent successes such as winning the Good Pig Award in the Good Farm Animal Welfare Awards, we were overjoyed to be finalists at this year’s Good Food Awards. Not only that, but we were delighted to supply our award-winning free-range chicken as the main course at the gala dinner, served as Roast Breast of Packington Chicken with bubble and squeak potato roulade and apple jus.
We were really pleased to be able to showcase our free-range chicken to an audience who appreciate good quality food. It was an honour to attend such a special event which celebrates the efforts of local food producers. We’d just like to say a huge congratulations to all the winners of the Good Food Awards, some of which we got to speak to on the night, and also a big thank you to the organisers for giving us the opportunity to be involved with Taste of Staffordshire. The awards ceremony played host to over 250 guests, members and industry award winners. Held at BEST WESTERN Stoke-on-Trent Moat House Hotel and hosted by regional broadcast journalist Janine Machin, the awards merited those recognised for their hard work and dedication in producing quality local food and drink.
