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 embark 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 previously called for the general public to nominate their favourite game meat business or person, and they are now able to vote for their top nominees from the 12th August to the 30th September 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 addition of a Scottish Prize, in partnership with Scotland’s Natural Larder (SNL), will cover the ‘Best Scottish Entry’ in each of the categories (excluding Champion of Champions).

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.
