A FOOD blogger has won a prestigious award.

LUXlife Magazine created the annual Food and Drink Awards, where they pay homage to the people and brands that are leading the ongoing transformations within the industry.

This year, The Foodie Card has been recognised as the UK initiative working the hardest to support the efforts of restaurants, café’s, bars and more in delivering quality food and drink to consumers.

The card, launched in July 2019 off the back of Victoria Richardson’s successful food blog Pershore Patty, connects independent eateries with local foodies who are searching for great places to dine across Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire.

At the heart of The Foodie Card is the desire to help the local community thrive, driving people to their nearby undiscovered shops and restaurants to support the local economy.

It’s this philosophy and the fantastic range of businesses involved that has seen Pershore Patty and The Foodie Card receive the remarkable accolade of Best Food and Drink Business Supporter 2019.

Victoria Richardson, founder of The Foodie Card, commented: “I’m incredibly thrilled to have been recognised as the Best Food and Drink Business Supporter."

“Food has always excited me, so with the blog, I wanted to celebrate the fantastic culinary options available in the local area. However, I soon realised that it wasn’t enough and I wanted to do more. So 18 months later, I launched The Foodie Card to draw even more foodies into their local eateries.”
