Kelly’s of Cornwall has been named ‘Best British Food Brand’ at the Great British Food Awards 2016.

Launched for the first time three years ago, the awards were set up to provide a platform “for the skilled, passionate – and often unsung – artisans” behind the nation’s finest speciality food and drink.

Charlotte Hambling, head of UK marketing at parent company, R&R, said: “It’s a huge honour for Kelly’s of Cornwall to be recognised as ‘Best British Food Brand’, particularly as this award has been voted for by the public.”

The Padstow Farm Shop won the Independent Retailer in West of England category.
