Do you sell through a farm shop or specialist retailer?

GROWERS or suppliers in the UK who are selling their products through farm shops and delis are being urged to get invovled in the Retailer Awards 2024, launched by the Farm Shop & Deli Show. 

For 2024 the Awards are celebrating specialist retailers and recognising their achievements in the independent sector. Free to enter, entries are now open across eleven categories and seven regions to recognise specialist retailers across the country, with the entry deadline on September 29th 2023.  

This year the Awards are championed by Fieldfare, a family-owned business based in Kent that started more than 40 years ago. Fieldfare supplies loose frozen food with as little waste and packing as possible to farm shops, garden centres and independent stores across the UK.

The 2024 Awards:
-    New: Category Awards are back! Entrants will be judged across eleven specialist categories from bakers to village stores. 
-    This year they will also be looking for ‘Best in Region’ with winners selected from the category judging stage.
-    The Retailer of the Year accolade returns and will be selected by the judges from retailers who have won their Category and ‘Best in Region’.
-    For any new businesses that opened after January 1st, 2021, judges may nominate a ‘Newcomer of the Year’ winner.

The panel of judges, hosted by Nigel Barden, will be evaluating what initiatives retailers have implemented over the past 12 months to develop and grow their store / business. The winners will then be revealed live from the Farm Shop & Deli Show at the NEC Birmingham on April 29th.
