A diverse industry, the agri-food sector is moving from strength to strength in Northern Ireland. The Food Heartland Awards are ‘encouraging all local food and drink business and young people working and studying in the sector to enter and get the recognition they deserve’.
The ceremony celebrates everything from specialist producers to the best restaurants. Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council Lord Mayor, Councillor Julie Flaherty, was certainly excited for the evening: “These exciting awards not only recognise the hard-work and dedication of local food companies but shine a spotlight on the abundance of top-quality produce and producers that exists.”
With 12 categories, including titles for Best Marketing Initiative and the Best Growth Award, these trophies needed to stand out.
These eye-catching trophies incorporate the Food Heartland NI logo, with a profiled top cut from our top-quality aluminium. Utilising our in-house finishing facilities, these awards feature a smooth, shiny finish, perfect for the glitz and glam of an award ceremony.
With selective UV-printing, we’re able to do a colour-matched print of the tag-shaped logo, while leaving the rest of the award with a polished finish. Gaudio is home to extensive UV-printing technology, with colour-matched inks that then dry instantly.
Our printing services are ideal for specific colours, shapes and fonts. Print allows for beautifully designed awards that don’t compromise your brand. Instead, we can create designs that combine iconic brand elements with our experience in bespoke award manufacture. It also allows for variation on the theme; for example, the gold printed tag for Industry Ambassador award winner, Simon Dougan MBE.
The Food Heartland Awards also gave our designers the opportunity to implement some fun, tactile elements, taking this award above and beyond. To embody the logo, we’ve included real brown string on the tags, looped through the aluminium.

Finally, the award sits on a light oak base. A wooden base can add a sophisticated, natural feel to any award. In this case, it was particularly fitting for a ceremony celebrating the best of the agri-food sector. With a spacious flat face, this wooden base is laser engraved with award categories and winners’ names. Our individual customisation options mean that your awards are more than just display pieces, they’re a personal keepsake for many recipients.
