We recently launched the Brighton & Hove Foodie Awards, celebrating the best restaurants, food pubs, cafés and food shops and over 500 people in the city have already voted!

The Foodies will be open for voting until September, when the winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony during the September food festival.

“Brighton & Hove’s food offer is something to enjoy and to be really proud of today -and we have created the Foodies to give the very best food businesses in our city the opportunity to be applauded by the public,” said Paula Seager, Managing Director of Natural PR, which also runs the Sussex Food & Drink Awards and specialises in food PR.

Latest7 magazine and Juice FM will be promoting the awards scheme over the next six months, through Andrew Kay’s food column and Andrea Fox’s Friday morning show, including a monthly update of who is in the lead in each category.

Everyone can vote once per category and voting is online at: www.brightonfoodawards.com
