Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London said: “I would like to send my best wishes to the British Kebab Awards and congratulate all the nominees.

“This ceremony is one of the highlights of the calendar and a chance to celebrate a much-loved cuisine.

“These awards highlight the importance of the kebab industry’s contributions to the country’s culture and economy.”

Andrew Kenny, UK managing director of longstanding award sponsors Just Eat, added: “We’re delighted to continue our sponsorship of the British Kebab Awards, which recognises individuals and businesses at the forefront of the kebab industry.

“Not only do the shortlisted restaurants and takeaways serve fantastic food, they also offer a vital source of local jobs, bring diversity to our high streets and make a significant contribution to the UK economy – particularly important at the end of a challenging year.”

Nadhim Zahawi MP, chair of the Conservative Party, said: “Like much of the hospitality sector, kebab houses were hit hard by the pandemic, which is why there has never been a better time to fan the flames of Britain’s love affair with kebabs than by supporting The British Kebab Awards this year.

“This year’s awards serve not just as an opportunity to recognise the Kebab Houses which have continued to excite palates and fill stomachs in the face of so much adversity, but also as an opportunity to stride towards enhanced standards and an ever more vibrant industry as we emerge from the ashes of coronavirus.”
