Comedian to compere SuperMeat & Fish Awards

Top comedian and sitcom star Hugh Dennis will be presenting the winners at this year’s glittering SuperMeat & Fish Awards.

Dennis, star of Outnumbered and Radio 4’s The Now Show, will be handing out the gongs during the awards culmination at the Park Lane Hilton, London, on 4 July, 2013, before revealing which retailer has taken the prestigious title of Meat & Fish Retailer of the Year.

Ed Bedington, editor of MTJ, said: “The standard of entries has been excellent this year and the competition fierce. Morrisons will be looking to hold on to the title it won last year, but its rival retailers are not going to let that happen without a fight.”

The SuperMeat & Fish Awards, which have been running for more than a decade, reward excellence in supermarket retailing and the manufacture of meat, poultry and fish products. This year will see Aldi, Asda, The Co-operative, Lidl, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco all competing for prizes. Judging both products and stores across a range of categories, the awards climax with one retailer taking home the prestigious title of Meat & Fish Retailer of the Year.

The SuperMeat & Fish Awards 2013 are sponsored by Bpex, Eblex, Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales, and the Livestock & Meat Commission Northern Ireland.
