Our co-founder, Alison Lea-Wilson MBE, has been awarded the Outstanding Contribution Award at the national Wales Food and Drink Awards, and was honoured along with 16 other  winners from all over Wales at the black-tie ceremony.

Judges called Halen Môn a ‘global brand which has turned an everyday cooking ingredient into a superstar’ and commended Alison’s commitment and generosity when it comes to the Welsh food and drink industry.  

Some of the most innovative and creative food and drink producers in Wales were celebrated at the second Wales Food and Drink Awards, other winners included everyone from Conwy Kombucha to Dylan’s Restaurants. 

From established companies who have become household names to small start-ups, the business awards were set up to celebrate and showcase the best food and drink producers in Wales, whatever their size.

Businesses had been shortlisted in a range of categories, to reflect the diverse nature of what is a key sector in the Welsh economy and one that has gained a global reputation for excellence.  

Wales has some of the best food and drink products in the world and it’s important we celebrate this.

The awards highlighted the diversity of the sector, along with the successes of scaling up, creating jobs, and being an inspiration to others.
