It’s always nice to get good news, especially these days. On Wednesday last I learned that the Oonagheats.com Food & Drinks Producers’ On-Line Directory (what a mouthful!) had got the attention of the judges at the Irish Quality Food Awards. It turns out that I’d been nominated and subsequently shortlisted for an award!
It’s the COVID-19 Response Frontline Hero category at the 2020 Irish Quality Food and Drink Performance Awards. Thank you so much to those of you who nominated me, I’m so pleased / chuffed / thrilled / all of the above!
But I’m really more pleased at having been able to do something small to help food & drinks producers to survive in the face of lost orders and customers as restaurants, cafes and hotels closed due to COVID-19. Some producers reported a loss of 75% of their sales. It is the food & drinks producers who are the real heroes, I mean it.
Fingers crossed for the awards event on December 11th – I’ll let you know what happens. You can read about all the other categories and shortlisted entrants here.
