The awards will be held at Solberge Hall on Monday, 9th May 2022, hosted by BBC Radio York presenter Elly Fiorentini.

"It will be a very special, memorable and exciting awards event, for many reasons. A time for us to get together and congratulate each other, and to really celebrate everyone’s incredible achievements, despite the fragile climate we have all been faced with," says Irene Myers, Chair of the Flavours of Herriot Awards. Irene continues, "A credit to you all for drawing on your resources, diversifying, supporting your communities, feeding those in need, offering food deliveries and working so hard, sometimes against the odds, to make sure all this happened. This is what the awards will be about, to recognise all the hard work, going that extra tough mile, alongside running your day to day businesses. We can’t wait for all your entries to come rolling in, to hear how you made a difference, and how your business has grown in strength, and determination. We want to applaud you!"
