Farm Shop & Deli Show Retailer Awards finalists revealed | News


The finalists in this year’s search for Britain’s top specialist food and drink retailers have been revealed.

A panel of expert judges have selected regional shortlists, with the winners to be announced at the Farm Shop & Deli Show at NEC Birmingham on 25 April. See below for the list of finalists. 

This year, the judges had particular focus on businesses undertaking sustainable initiatives while also supporting their customers, communities and suppliers.

Sustainability is a key concern for specialist retailers as waste reduction, recycling and energy efficiency can have financial benefits as well as environmental ones.

“With these awards we celebrate those retailers whose incredible spirit and entrepreneurial mindset has shone through,” said Andrew Reed, MD of events & exhibitions at Farm Shop & Deli Show organiser William Reed, publisher of The Grocer.

The Farm Shop & Deli Show is part of the The UK Food & Drink Shows at NEC Birmingham from 25 to 27 April. Uniting four shows under one roof, the event covers the complete supply chain in three days of insight, innovation and inspiration, with the content of each show tailored to meet the requirements of its respective audience.
