Gongs will be presented for a total of 17 categories at the ninth annual British Kebab Awards, following a competitive nomination process.
A panel of judges including MPs Nadhim Zahawi, Carolyn Harris, David Warburton, Angus Mcneil as well as James O’Brien of LBC will help to decide the winners of each category – although anyone could vote for their favourite kebab outlet from a shortlist for each category.
The Awards have become a fixture in the annual food awards calendar, and celebrate the growing contribution of the kebab industry to the UK.
The British kebab industry contributes over £2.8 billion annually to the British economy, supporting around 200,000 jobs across takeaways, restaurants, suppliers and the food industry in the UK. There are also around 200 doner kebab manufacturers in the UK, with a turnover in excess of £750m.
The first kebab shop opened in North London in 1966 and there are now over 20,000 kebab outlets in the UK selling an estimated 1.5m kebabs every day.
The awards are sponsored by the UK’s largest takeaway website JUST EAT Takeaway, as well as Ben and Jerry’s, Big K, Cobra Beer and Coca Cola, with the aim of showcasing the wide range of restaurants serving kebab styled food.
