Sponsorship



Taste Canada  thanks all of our sponsors. Without their support the Book Awards would not be possible.

In 2013, Taste Canada – The Food Writing Awards will celebrate its 16th anniversary.

Our goal is to celebrate culinary writing in Canada—a barometer of trends in the food industry—and to bring the nominated titles to the attention of a larger general public.

We invite you to join us in taking Taste Canada—The Food Writing Awards to a new level of awareness in Canada. The awards offer a unique opportunity to present our sponsors’ products and services to some of the most recognized and respected Canadian food personalities and to the Canadian public.

The outreach is scheduled for January, February, April, May, August, and the ceremony in November and will be a combination of social and traditional media, and the use of “big mouths” in the industry to reach publishers, authors, and opinion leaders.

The event on November 4th will involve 300 of the top food writers, media, and influencers in the food industry. Last year’s sponsors are already lining up, and if previous years are any indication, we will have to turn away some of the 1000-strong guest list!

This is corporate identification with a unique Canadian book awards program and a celebration of Canadian cuisine from organizations focused on supporting and servicing the culinary industry from field to table.
