Welcome to the Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards 

The Irish Quality Food and Drink Awards recognise and celebrate the best in retail, wholesale and foodservice food and drink products available in Ireland.

Our long history means that the ‘Q’ on pack is now the most recognisable mark of quality for retailers, food and drink manufacturers, foodservice providers, wholesalers, suppliers and small producers alike. This year the awards will be returning to the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin on 24 October 2019 where the whole industry meets to network and reward the best in the industry.

Staying true to a heritage spanning four decades, the Quality Food and Drink Awards will once again proudly uphold what is renowned as the industry’s most rigorous and transparent judging process. We call this long-standing tradition “respectful rigour”, bringing together a 200-strong panel of independent judges to debate and evaluate each and every product. This ensures that you can be confident that your products are judged by experts in the field.

We are delighted to share the 2019 Shortlist has been announced.
