SuperMeat & Fish Awards: do not miss out
Published:  03 May, 2017

Deadlines for the SuperMeat & Fish Awards are approaching rapidly and retailers and suppliers who have not yet entered must ensure they submit their entries to have a shot at winning a trophy. 

The traditional butchery and fish counter and product awards have expanded this year to include Supermarket Meat Processor of The Year, Supermarket Fish Processor of The Year and Supply Chain Partnership of the Year Awards. Most categories are free to enter.

The product awards, for which there is a charge, will incorporate Meat Trades Journal’s SuperMeat & Fish Christmas Products Awards. Winners can use the SuperMeat & Fish logo on product packaging and are covered extensively online and in print.

Past winners have included Tesco, Marks & Spencer and The Co-operative Food. The overall 2016 winner was Morrisons. Chairman Andrew Higginson referred to the accolade in its interim results statement last year.

The meticulous judging panel for the various awards include accredited master butchers, chefs and retail and supply chain experts and Meat Trades Journal has worked hard to make the entry process as simple and straightforward as possible.

The deadline for the retail & supply chain awards is Friday 19 May and the deadline for the product awards is Friday 26 May. The awards lunch will take place on Friday 8 September at London’s Hilton Bankside Hotel, kicking off with a drinks reception.

Meat, seafood and cheese packaging business Krehalon, which specialises in Secondary Seal Technology among other areas, is sponsoring the Supermarket Meat Processor of The Year Award. A range of sponsorship opportunities exist in other categories, but potential sponsors are advised to express their interest sooner rather than later to avoid missing out.
