Fiona Kay, owner of Cheese Please explained why she has chosen to become a sponsor of the Awards this year:
"Cheese Please is now in its eighth year of providing product expertise, quality service and a commitment to working closely with local providers and establishments. Our dedicated approach and supportive clientele have placed us in the finals of the Sussex Food shop of the Year for four years, winning two years in a row.
The Sussex Food and Drink Awards celebrates and promotes all that is good in Epicurus Sussex. It has been a privilege to be honoured in this category in past years and I am delighted to now sponsor it. As a regular judge in the World Cheese Awards and the Great Taste Awards, I want to celebrate local producers and outlets which support them and continue to put Sussex produce and foods first in the nation’s mind."
