SuperMeat & Fish awards under way

Retailers will be squaring off later in the year for the annual battle to take the ultimate prize for the supermarket meat and fish sector.

The 2012 SuperMeat & Fish Awards is already shaping up to be one of the strongest to date, with seven leading retailers taking part, including Aldi, Asda, The Co-operative, Lidl, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco.

Entries are now open for products into those seven stores, and you can enter directly by contacting Rebecca George on 01293 610422, or email her on rebecca.george@wrbm.com.

The SuperMeat & Fish Awards, organised by Meat Trades Journal, are the leading awards of their type and provide a showcase for the best products and retailers throughout the UK.

Judging both products and stores across a range of categories, the awards climax with one retailer taking home the title of Meat & Fish Retailer of the Year.

Ed Bedington, editor of MTJ, said: “Last year saw a fantastic competition with Asda beating off its rivals to take home the ultimate title. We’re expecting this year to be even more exciting and look forward to judging the products and stores shortly.”

The awards will take place at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London on 5 July, and the event is sponsored by Bpex, Eblex, Hybu Cig Cymru, the Livestock & Meat Commission and Vion Food UK.
