For the very first time The Select Lincolnshire and Tastes of Lincolnshire Partnership are inviting the public to vote for The People's Choice Award - Local Producer of the Year, sponsored by Lincolnshire Co-operative.
Fans of Lincolnshire's award winning food can vote for their favourite Lincolnshire producer from the list of Select Lincolnshire and Tastes of Lincolnshire members online at www.tastesoflincolnshire.com, www.selectlincolnshire.com or www.lincolnshire.coop

Mary Powell of Lincolnshire County Council and The Select Lincolnshire & Tastes of Lincolnshire Partnership comments "We are justifiably proud of our fantastic food and drink - I believe no other county has a passion for feeding the nation like we do! We know shoppers have their favourite Lincolnshire delicacies; and now we want them to tell us which producer they think deserves this outstanding accolade.
We are very pleased that Lincolnshire Co-operative and The DoubleTree by Hilton are sponsoring our awards this year; and showing such support to the county's vital food and drink industry"
Lincolnshire Co-operative's Supply Chain Manager Nicola Berry said: "We're delighted to sponsor the Food and Drink Awards 2012 as we believe there's lots to celebrate in the field of Lincolnshire produce, especially as we're now officially recognised as the Best British Food Spot.
"The category we have chosen to support is the People's Choice Award. We know from the popularity of our Local Choice range that yellowbellies love the quality local food from their county. We really hope that lots of people get behind their favourite producer and vote so we can find out who deserves this prestigious title in 2012."
One lucky person who votes will win two tickets to the exclusive awards ceremony and a luxury over night stay at the brand new DoubleTree by Hilton, Lincoln on the 2nd February 2012; where the 'who's who' of the Lincolnshire Food Industry will dine on the finest 3 course, locally sourced menu created by new Hilton Head Chef Alec Maxfield formerly of The Fat Duck, and be entertained by guest speaker Tim Nicol - Village Champion for Taste Tideswell, part of BBC One's Village SOS programme.
