Michelmores sponsors Devon Life Food and Drink Awards 2015

Michelmores' Food and Drink team sponsored 'The Best Seafood Supplier of the Year' award at Devon Life's 2015 Food and Drink awards on Thursday 5 November.

The annual awards dinner, hosted this year by BBC Radio Devon's Simon Bates, celebrates the county's food and drink industry across 15 awards categories including; best restaurant/dining experience of the year, best independent food shop of the year, best gastro pub of the year, best farmers market of the year and best butcher/meat producer of the year.

Winner of the Michelmores sponsored 'Best Seafood Supplier of the Year' award was Dan the Fish Man, an ex fisherman and lifeboat crew member who is unapologetically fanatical about fish and fishing. Dan is committed to sourcing and selling the freshest local fish and can be seen with his colourful barrow at weekly markets across North Devon. This is the second year in a row that this one-man business has won the award.

Head of Michelmores' Food & Drink team David Thompson, who was on the judging panel for 'The Best Seafood Supplier of the Year' and presented the award to Dan the Fish Man on the night said;

"Congratulations to Dan the Fish Man on winning this award for the second year, his enthusiasm is infectious and he is a really worthy winner of the category.

We are delighted to have been an awards sponsor at this year's Devon Life Food and Drink Awards. It was a fantastic evening and great opportunity to meet some of the top people from the industry in the county."
