Furley Page Solicitors and NFU Mutual (Tenterden, Ashford and Whitfield) have been announced as joint sponsors of the Kent Wine of the Year category when the Taste of Kent Awards return next year.

The Taste of Kent Awards (#TOKA2022) are an annual celebration of the county’s best food and drink producers, organised by Produced in Kent. The formal launch of the awards will take place on Tuesday 16 November 2021 at the Houses of Parliament, and voting for the public will open on Monday 10 January 2022.

Furley Page and NFU Mutual will jointly sponsor the Kent Wine of the Year category, while Furley Page will also sponsor the Kent Food and Drink Start-Up Business of the Year award.

The annual awards are Kent’s longest running and most prestigious awards and the range of categories has grown year on year to incorporate every product that Kent is renowned for.

Deborah Geering, a Partner at the law firm, is leading the sponsorship for Furley Page.

Deborah said: “Furley Page is thrilled to be a part of #TOKA2022 again this year to help celebrate and publicise Kent’s excellent food and drink producers. The county turns out an eclectic mix of produce, including wine, local meats and cheeses, ice cream, crisps, fruit and many more exciting products beyond this.

“We are delighted to be able to sponsor the Kent Wine of the Year category and the Kent Food and Drink Start-Up Business of the Year category to help showcase the delicious products that our local food and drink producers are creating.”

Doug Jackson, senior partner at NFU Mutual Ashford, Tenterden & Whitfield, said: “Our team are really excited to be announced as joint sponsors with Furley Page for both the Kent Wine of the Year and Kent Beer of the Year categories. The opportunity to sponsor not one, but two great awards that mean a great deal to us and our business is a huge honour.

“A number of our commercial clients fall within these categories and we are really pleased to support them and the other nominees at this exciting time. Our best wishes go out to all nominees!”

The Taste of Kent Awards Ceremony will be held on Thursday 12 May 2022 at the Kent Showground at the Kent Event Centre, Detling.
