In Lincolnshire, fresh local produce has a special place in people’s hearts.

In fact, food feeds more than appetites in Lincolnshire!

We’re a county full of food experts - growers, producers, processors and artisan businesses makes Lincolnshire the jewel in the UK food industry’s crown. 

From the Humber to the Wash, traditional skills of farming and food production have been nurtured and handed down through the generations to create a rich and diverse food heritage.

Celebrating Lincolnshire’s tradition of producing quality food and drink is the regional food brand Select Lincolnshire.

How do we celebrate? 

Each year we hold an awards ceremony where we congratulate the businesses who have helped to promote the county and local produce. This year the award show is held on 19th September at Lincoln Minster School, and we'd love for you to be a part of it!

Richard Askam will be our host for the evening.

Richard is a much sought after business speaker, panelist and event host and consistently wins the highest scoring feedback at the events he works at.

Voted No 1 speaker at Hewlett-Packard’s Global conference in the USA recently - he is travelling more than ever and enjoying every minute, which is evident if you have ever seen his stage craft as a speaker. Engaging, witty and demonstrative - Richard is one of the best story tellers of his generation.
