Farm Shop & Deli Show Awards 2019 Finalists Announced

The shortlist for the prestigious awards has been announced, with winners due to be unveiled at the Farm Shop & Deli Show Monday 8th April at the NEC Birmingham.

The judging panel for 2019 met in November in London for a day of evaluation and deliberation. Secret visits and mystery shops followed over the next three months to finalist the shortlist in advance of the announcement on 1st March of the category contenders for the 2019 Farm Shop & Deli Awards, in partnership with The Grocer.

Chair of judges and food and drink journalist and broadcaster Neil Barden commented: "I am delighted to continue to be involved with the Farm Shop & Deli Awards. It's a fabulous initiative for the sector and offers the best way to recognise and reward excellence for the UK's local, artisan and high street speciality retailers. These awards are so important for the industry. One really big factor is the quality of the judges. They're really right across the board from retailers, to producers and food and drink journalists."
