A Brighton butchers shop was the town’s only business to be recognised at the Sussex Food and Drink Awards last night (Thursday 31 January).
Bramptons, of St George’s Road in Kemp Town, was one of the two runners up for the Sussex Butcher of the Year award.
The awards were held at the Amex Community Stadium in Falmer – the home of Brighton and Hove Albion.
More than 350 leaders in the food, drink and farming industries arrived for a gathered for a “Sussex bubbly and ale reception”, sponsored by Harveys and Carr Taylor.
The stadium caterers, the Lindley Group, laid on a seven-course banquet which included Sussex beef and dairy, locally caught fish, locally grown fruit and vegetables and local cheeses. The coffee as Sussex ground and the chocolates were, of course, locally made.
The chairman of the judges, Clive Beddall, said: “All our grand finalists offer superb quality and innovation and reflect the rich diversity of the food and drink industry in this part of the world.
“And there are few areas of a modern food store or indeed a catering sector menu that cannot be supplied from Sussex.”
