Farm Shop & Deli Show reveals 2024 retailer awards finalists

Farm Shop & Deli Show has unveiled the regional finalists in its 2024 Retailer Awards, championed by Fieldfare and in partnership with The Grocer – comprising some of the UK's best loved specialist retailers, pillars of their respective communities and champions of great produce and sustainable practice.

Farm Shop & Deli Show awards Judging took place last November, where an esteemed panel of judges came together in person at Fortnum & Mason in London for a day of deliberations and decisions.

From this they have created their shortlist of category finalists, whittled down from hundreds of entries, by taking into consideration the achievements retailers have made in the independent sector.

The 74 successful businesses span 11 categories: Baker; Butcher, Cheesemonger; Delicatessen, Farm Shop Large, Farm Shop Small, Fishmonger, Food Hall, Greengrocer, Online Business and Independent local shop/Village store.

They cover seven UK regions: Anglia, Midlands, North England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, South England and Wales. In addition, judges went on to select the Newcomer of the Year finalists. The nine successful new businesses span regions including Anglia, North England, Scotland and South England.

Judge Matt Whelan, MD Fieldfare who champion the Retailer Awards, tells us: "We are delighted to champion the Farm Shop & Deli Show Retailer Awards. What a great experience to be a member of the judging panel! Having the opportunity to see so many fantastic independent retailers, reviewing the many approaches they take to delivering a wonderful experience for their shoppers, was both a pleasure and challenge!"

Regional winners will be selected from the category finalists and, with the 'Retailer of the Year' accolade, 'Newcomer of the Year as well as 'Best in Category' and 'Best in Region' Awards up for grabs, the winners' announcement on Monday 29th April, 15:15 at Farm Shop & Deli Show, is set to be a fantastic celebration of speciality retailers.
