Farm Shop and Deli Retailer Awards

For over nine years the prestigious Farm Shop & Deli Retailer Awards are renowned for supporting, and celebrating, local specialist retailers across 12 categories and nine regions

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

The judges are looking for retailers who have shown innovation to adapt their business during the unprecedented past 12-18 months. Perhaps it is steps that have been introduced to become a more sustainable business (examples could be in relation to packaging, recycle/reuse, waste, energy). No matter how large or small your steps may be, or what financial investment you have made, if you’ve demonstrated innovation and sustainability in your business, then we want to hear about, and celebrate, it!

Following a similar format to last year, we’re again looking to shine the spotlight on those retailers who deserve recognition and unveil the ‘Best in region’.
