Catering suppliers, manufacturers and chefs are being urged to enter.
There are six categories in the awards which include fresh pork cut, pork ready meal, best cold eating product, pork bakery product, best cured product and best innovative pork product.
Tony Goodger, BPEX foodservice trade manager, said: “When it comes to meals eaten out of the home pork meat has the largest share of the market, accounting for over 1.75 million servings and increasing year on year.
“Customers expect quality and what better way to show it by not only using pork produced to rigorous standards as part of an assurance scheme, such as Red Tractor, but also being crowned Pork Product Champion.”
The closing date for paper entries is 15 February. Award winners will be invited to a lunch on 12 April where the 2013 champion will be announced.
