Nominate a Champion of Suffolk Game for National Awards

Nominate a Champion of Suffolk Game for National Awards

The Eat Game Awards is a brand new initiative created by three leading British businesses, James Purdey & Sons Ltd, Boisdale Restaurants and Taste of Game, bringing together the shooting, game meat and hospitality sectors to celebrate the wild game meat produced in Britain.

The Awards are on a national search to find the champions of British game and to reward their success, innovation and passion in working with this natural countryside harvest. The Eat Game Awards website calls for the general public to nominate their favourite game meat business or person from the 4th September to 28th February 2018.

The Awards reflect the ever-growing use of wild game with 10 different categories:

  • Best restaurant regularly serving game
  • Best pub regularly serving game
  • Best game chef regularly cooking game
  • Best game farmers market stall including street food vendor
  • Best added value game product
  • Best multiple retailer selling game
  • Best small retailer selling game
  • Best game butcher
  • Game Hero
  • Champion of Champions

After the nomination period has finished in February, the public will then be able to vote for the top 10 nominees from the 1st June to the 28th August 2018. The individual or business with the most votes will win in each category. The results will be announced at the Eat Game Awards dinner at Boisdale Canary Wharf on the 9th October 2018.

The online nomination process is quick and easy. Nominations are being accepted now at

The Eat Game Awards are supported by a steering group made up of experts from a cross section of the hospitality, retail, game meat and shooting worlds, including William Sitwell, Chris Blundell, Claire Zambuni, and Tristan Kirk and Simon Wilkins of Lincolnshire Game.  J B Gill (pictured), formerly of the pop group JLS and now a television presenter and farmer, is an ambassador of the Awards.

The nominated charity that the Awards will be supporting is The Country Food Trust, whose aim is to feed those in need with game meat casseroles packaged in ready-to-eat long-life pouches.
