By bringing together the shooting, game meat and hospitality sectors, together they want to find the unsung heroes of British game.

The Awards have launched a national search to find and reward the champions of British game, those that use innovation and passion while working with this natural, countryside harvest. Ten nominees have been selected across ten categories, and now is your chance to select the winners.

The Field is delighted to be sponsoring the category for Best Added Value Game Product.

James Horne of Purdey said, “The consumption of game meat is a great joy to those that have enjoyed the spoils during the game season. We are determined to broaden the awareness of the delights this meat brings and encourage its wider consumption across the UK. The Awards are a tremendous way of recognising the significant breadth of game use and innovation that so many ordinary people, chefs, restaurants and companies have brought to our table.”

Ranald Macdonald of Boisdale said, “The eating of game is integral to the survival of the Great British countryside, the rural economy and our way of life. It is also delicious and nutritious. For everyone’s benefit we need to encourage the consumption of British game.”

Annette Woolcock of Taste of Game: “We are very excited by the Awards and hope the shooting and game meat industry will get behind them by nominating and voting for their favourite businesses and individuals. There are some great businesses now using game and we want to reward and showcase them through these Awards”.
