There are a very busy few weeks coming up as we prepare for initial judging in UCC and shortly after in The Baking Academy. We have entries which have come in from all across Ireland and as always we are encouraging food producers to share deliveries for initial judging where you can.
The most important thing for us is that your sample arrives on time, at its very best and ready to be tasted.
- It does not have to be delivered by the producer.
- It can arrive by post, by courier or indeed in a shared delivery with another producer from your locality (In fact this is encouraged!)If you have a delivery to Blas na hEireann initial judging and would be interested in getting in touch with another producer from your area you can now use a message board feature on our website. Simply log in to onlineentry.irishfoodawards.com and you will see a link in the top right hand corner, under Forums. Here you can find the board for your county and in turn the thread for Shared Deliveries, just leave a comment letting other producers know if you are looking foir a shared delivery or are travelling and will be happy to take another producers delivery.
Every year, we are delighted to see more and more producers work together and share the load! (and maybe even build some new relationships with local colleagues in the food business).
