The Eat Game Awards

The Eat Game Awards is an exciting initiative set up by James Purdey & Sons, Boisdale Restaurants and Taste of Game. Its main aim is to award recognition and help develop game as a vibrant and modern addition to the British menu, whilst encouraging the British public to discover and embrace this valuable food source. The Awards will identify and celebrate the innovators, creators and revolutionaries in the world of wild game.

The Eat Game Awards will be supporting the Country Food Trust. Currently, they produce game meat casseroles packaged in ready to eat long life pouches, for every unit sold, one will be given to charity. All proceeds raised on the Awards night will go to the charity.

Aimed at stimulating demand, interest and respect for the produce of the game industry on a national scale. We believe that this event will promote this unique, sustainable, natural British produce and highlight the fantastic field to fork ethos!
