Date: Monday 21 December

Due to restrictions around the Covid-19 pandemic the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards had to make the difficult decision to cancel the product awards for 2020. However they still felt it was important to continue to celebrate the great work being done in the industry; this year focusing on the people and projects. They have honoured the champions throughout the industry from individuals to businesses who have shown commitment to their communities during the pandemic.

Winners included three frontline heroes; Jack Hamilton, Mash Direct for his Business in the Community, Oonagh Monahan, Alpha Omega Consultants as Local Community Champion and Patricia Quinn, Birds Eye Ireland for her work in Health and Safety.

The 2021 awards will be launched in February.
