It’s really a tribute to the team that we have here who work hard to keep our business at the top of our game. We never stop looking for ways to improve our offering and of course for new and exciting products, so it’s great to be recognised for our efforts”.

Higginsons are well known across Cumbria and beyond for their legendary hand-made Pies, speciality local meats, award-winning Sausages and home-cured Bacon.

The winners will be announced during the awards ceremony on Thursday 21st March at Kendal College, by food and drink broadcaster Nigel Barden.
