Regional winners revealed for Farm Shop & Deli Retailer Awards

by | Apr 27, 2022 | Community, News | 0 comments

Yesterday, specialist retailers, suppliers and the award judges came together in person at Farm Shop & Deli Show to celebrate the very best of the sector as the regional winners were announced to a packed audience.

For 2022, the awards recognised specialist retailers who are doing their part to create a better world through sustainable initiatives, whilst supporting their customers, communities and suppliers.

The nomination and entry campaign commenced in January and February this year, where consumers and suppliers were invited to nominate worthy contenders, and specialist retailers were invited to enter. From more than 100 entries, the judging panel whittled this down to 51 finalists, announced in early April, with the nine regional winners announced on Monday 25 April.

Nigel Barden, chair of judges for the awards comments: “We had some fabulous entries, many reflecting how resourceful retailers have been in the food and drink sector, as they faced another very different and challenging year. Our judges had a difficult task drawing up the regional shortlists and winners for this year’s Farm Shop & Deli Awards, as there were some remarkable entries reflecting how resourceful many in the food and drink sector are, particularly with the emphasis being focused on recycling, waste and sustainability. It is heartening to see how much these talented, resourceful and diligent entrants care about their businesses and it was a privilege to read about them and celebrate them at the winners announcement.”
