The 28th Annual PAPA Awards have been launched to showcase the finest pizza, pasta and Italian food businesses across the country. This year we will also be celebrating the Pizza Pasta & Italian Food Association’s 40th Anniversary!

We are holding the awards again this year in conjunction with the European Pizza and Pasta Show, with the Pizza Chef and Pasta Chef of the Year finals being staged on the second day of the show. The event takes place at Olympia, London, on 16 November 2017, followed by the PAPA Awards dinner, at the Lancaster London Hotel in the evening when all the winners will be announced.
