Farm Shop & Deli Show, part of the UK Food & Drink Shows (25th – 27th April, NEC Birmingham) and home of the Farm Shop & Deli Awards for the specialist retail sector, are approaching their deadline for entering the 2022 Retailer Awards this month, Friday 25th February.

In celebration of those who have shown innovation to adapt their business during the unprecedented past 18 months. Entries are open across nine regions to recognise those specialist retailers who are playing their part in creating a better world through sustainable initiatives, whilst supporting their customers, communities and suppliers.

An esteemed panel of judges will consider the ways in which retailers adapted and evolved their businesses throughout the pandemic before announcing Regional Finalists in early April. The winners will then be revealed live from the Farm Shop & Deli Show, NEC Birmingham on Monday 25th April 2022, culminating in a wonderful celebration of the speciality sector.

Andrew Reed, Managing Director Events & Exhibitions says, “During the last 18 months, the specialist retail community has had to be so innovative and with these awards we want to celebrate those retailers whose incredible spirit and entrepreneurial mindset has shone through.

“If you are, or know, a retailer who deserves recognition for creating a better world through sustainable initiatives, no matter how small those steps may be, we want to hear from you! Farm Shop & Deli Retailer Awards are a fantastic way of celebrating our wonderful industry and I urge you to get your nominations and entries in today.”
