EMSWORTH has once again proved it is the foodie capital of the south coast by coming runner-up in a national competition.
Having scooped the top spot in 2014’s Harvest Heroes Awards organised by Love British Food, it was just pipped to the post this year by Peterborough.
Emsworth British Food Fortnight showcased the town’s food heritage and has put it on the map as a foodie destination.
The event, organised by Emsworth Business Association and other local organisations, focused on education, community and celebration.
Everyone involved was keen to build on last year’s success which won the coveted Harvest Heroes honour.
Alistair Gibson, from the organising committee, said: ‘It’s so important to recognise that we need to keep going.
‘Local producers and our independent high street need our continuing support to ensure they are available next year and the year after and into the future for today’s young people.’
British Food Fortnight was founded three years ago to promote British food and help British producers.
