A KEBAB manufacturer in Essex has been crowned the best supplier at the British Kebab Awards.

Kismet Kebabs Ltd, based in Latchingdon, has been manufacturing and supplying class quality kebabs all over UK and countries worldwide.

It operates from a purpose built factory on a massive six-acre site in the Dengie.

In a ceremony last Tuesday (October 26) for the British Kebab Awards 2021 the manufacturer was awarded Best Supplier of the Year.

The awards are run in association with Just Eat to recognise and champion the efforts of kebab takeaways and restaurants across the UK.
