Crumbs Awards 2019 finalists revealed

Here are your Crumbs Awards finalists for 2019…

The time has come, folks – we can finally reveal the short list for the 2019 Crumbs Awards!

A massive congratulations to everyone who has been shortlisted. The quality of entries (of which there were hundreds) was higher than ever and really illustarated how much passion there is in the South West’s food and drink industry. Safe to say, competiton was impressively stiff. 

For those who haven’t made the shortlist, the journey is not over! We’d love for you to join us at the awards ceremony on 6 Oct to support your fellow professionals and to celebrate your own achievements. It’s a party in your honour (because we don’t even like parties… that much…).

The judges will now take their time to review each of the finalists before meeting up and hashing it out to agree on our 2019 champions. If you’ve seen the film 12 Angry Men, it’s a bit like that, but with sandwiches. 

Without further ado, here are your Crumbs Awards 2019 finalists
