UK bakers are being encouraged to enter a competition to celebrate the best of British food and drink.

Taste of Britain will judge products on production standards and sustainability, as well as the positive impact they make on the local community, in five categories: Best UK Food, Best UK Drink/Beverage, Best Regional Food, Best Organic Food, and Best Seasonal Food.

Organised by the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, Sainsbury’s, Defra, the IGD, and Food From Britain, the closing date for entries is 27 July. Entry forms can be accessed at [].

Winners will be announced in a 16-page supplement in The Daily Telegraph, which coincides with the start of British Food Fortnight.
