The search is on to find the Island's most innovative food, farming and fishing producers.

It comes as the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture is inviting nominations for the 2019 Awards. 

Geoffrey Boot MHK, Minister for DEFA, said:  The awards recognise those working hard in this vibrant, challenging industry, and contribute to a culture where local food and drink is regarded as part and parcel of the Island’s national identity.’

Nominations should be sent to Lucy Verdon, Marketing Executive, DEFA at lucy.verdon@gov.im, by Friday, March 29.

Winners will be announced on Friday, August 9 at the Royal Manx Agricultural Show and will receive £300 in Shoprite vouchers, trophies and certificates.
