CO-OP Midcounties Food will be launching its competition to find the Cotswold's next big food and drink creator at an event in Shipston.

This is the second year Midcounties has run the competition which seeks to find the best local food and drink producers.

Finalists will get the chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of industry experts similar to the ‘Dragons’ Den’ format, with the winner receiving a £10,000 cash investment and a listing across a range of Midcounties stores.

The competition is being launched with special invite only event at Cotswold Distillery, in Stourton, Shipston-on-Stour on September 10.
