The British Kebab Awards took place on the 7th January, with restaurants and suppliers across the UK celebrating as they were honoured for their contribution to the industry. 

The British kebab industry contributes over £2.2 billion annually to the British economy, supporting around 200,000 jobs across restaurants, suppliers and the food industry in the UK. There are also around 200 doner kebab manufacturers in the UK, with a turnover in excess of £750m.

The first kebab shop opened in North London in 1966 and there are now over 20,000 kebab outlets in the UK selling an estimated 1.3m kebabs every day.

The ceremony in London was attended by over 1,200 people.

Gongs were presented for a total of 14 categories at the third annual British Kebab Awards, following a competitive nomination process.

A panel of judges including MPs Nadhim Zahawi, Jonathan Reynolds, Andy Love and Keith Vaz, as well as Baroness Hussein-Ece, helped decide the winners of each category – although anyone could vote for their favourite kebab outlet from a shortlist for each category.

The Awards have become a fixture in the annual food awards calendar, and celebrate the growing contribution of the kebab industry to the UK.
