Prestigious award for Gary Andrews!

Date published: 22 August 2016

2016 is the Northern Ireland Year of Food and Drink and how fitting that Gary Andrews, Food Technologist at CAFRE Loughry Campus, has won the “Food Hero of the Year Award” at the Grow Make Eat Drink Awards held in Belfast.

Gary Andrews, CAFRE (centre) with Graeme Huston Editorial Director, Johnston Publishing NI with Vicky Green, Groups Business Development Manager from category sponsor & venue partner Ramada Plaza Shaw’s Bridge.

Gary was up against stiff competition from Bill Duncan – Head Chef Foyle Hospice, Tracy Hamilton – Mash Direct, Emmett McCourt – Chef & Author and the Causeway Coast & Glens Food Network.

This award is thoroughly deserved and particularly valued as he was nominated by one of his client companies – Paul McClean, Kearney Blue Cheese, for his contribution towards the development of the artisan cheese sector in Northern Ireland.
