The Shortlist


Your votes – all 5,500 of them – have been counted! Here’s the shortlist in the Great Food Club Awards 2021/22.

You may notice that our shortlist is smaller this year than it has been. We have pared the categories back to create a genuine SHORT-list and make the awards even more meaningful.
