Yorkshire Stories of Sustainability

Best Sustainable Product Award – Deliciously Yorkshire Taste Awards

As part of our continued support of The Deliciously Yorkshire Taste Awards, FixOurFood sponsored a new category in 2023. The Best Sustainable Product Award is judged in line with the three pillars of sustainability – economic, environmental and social. We welcome entrants from all producers and invite them to submit evidence against the three pillars. Once the entries have been shortlisted, the entries are also judged on taste.

2023 winners, Acorn Dairy, stood out among so many quality entries with an impressive commitment to sustainability and of course fantastic flavour!

The team at Acorn Dairy, based near Darlington came out on top, with the judging panel noting: “It’s clear there is a lot of ground-breaking work going in the sector to reduce chemical inputs, increase the use of renewable energy, promote biodiversity, water quality and soil health as well as reducing emissions. Acorn Dairy and their Whole Milk entry are an exemplar of this, not only is it good for human and planetary health but it tastes delicious too!”

As part of the award we have created 3 films from the highest scoring entrants, The Yorkshire Pasta Company, Sloemotion Distillery and of course Acorn Dairy. The videos share more information about the impressive companies and also share future plans and concerns about the food system.
