This year we received an abundance of entries, all of which were of a very high standard. Nevertheless, following evaluation, deliberation, secret visits and mystery shops the judging panel of industry experts finally whittled down the shortlist and we are pleased to announce our Farm Shop & Deli Awards category finalists, with the winners announced live at the Farm Shop & Deli Show, 3.30pm on Monday 16th April 2018.
The 2018 Farm Shop & Deli Awards judging panel
Some comments from our judges:
"The standard and quality of entrants this year was outstanding which made judging extremely hard! Inspiring!"
Jamie Hall, Neal's Yard Dairy
"When scoring I was looking for the businesses that are doing it for the love of the food and produce they are selling, rather than running it just as a place of business, it was great to find those who are really putting their heart and soul into it."
Chris McNeil, Delicatessen Magazine
"The standard of entries have been really high this year, some of the ideas that have come through from the retailers have been really innovative. The focus not only on offering great products but also keeping customer needs in mind, being aware of upcoming trends and offering something different has shone through the applications I’ve seen."
Ashleigh O’Mahony, The Grocer
