Could we be a Farm Shop and Deli Awards winner?
The Farm Shop and Deli Awards have been celebrating excellence in the specialist retail market for 5 years and the Smiddy is in the running for the 'Farm Shop small retailer of the year' award but we need your help to win.
The Awards recognise the very best standards in specialist retail and celebrate the highest levels of service, product knowledge, initiative, innovation and community involvement. The aim is to highlight our highly driven and passionate local businesses like the Smiddy Farm Shop, to generate the coverage they deserve. Winning this Award would help build them as a destination, putting them on the map both regionally and nationally and in turn, bringing interest to Stirling.
Nigel Barden, chair of judges and BBC Radio Two Gastronome commented "The Farm Shop and Deli sector continues to grow in size and importance, as do these awards, which crucially acknowledge the finest in the field, in both retail and online. They also help consumers track down the finest out there, as these talented retailers continue to push the boundaries."
These coveted Awards recognise excellence within the specialist retail market, focusing on independent speciality retailers who sell regional fresh/farm produce or have a delicatessen counter. They are offered across thirteen categories, including Farm Shop small retailer. Entrants will also have the opportunity to win as a Regional Winner. The Regional Winners will progress through to have the opportunity to win the overall coveted title of ‘Farm Shop & Deli Awards Retailer of the Year’ announced at the Farm Shop & Deli Show, Monday 16th April 2018 at Birmingham’s NEC.
Part of the judging process is the online consumer voting, where you have the chance to vote for us. You can visit our awards page here, fill out the form and tell them what you think. Voting closes on Tuesday 31st October 2017. One lucky voter will be entered into a draw to win a food hamper.
