SuperMeat & Fish Awards to be biggest yet
Published:  10 May, 2017

Meat Trades Journal’s flagship event, the SuperMeat & Fish Awards, is coming back bigger and better than ever before for 2017. 

Deadlines are fast approaching and retailers and suppliers that haven’t submitted their entries are being encouraged to make the most out of this opportunity.

The traditional butchery and fish counter and product awards this year have been expanded to include Supermarket Meat Processor of The Year, Supermarket Fish Processor of The Year and Supply Chain Partnership of the Year awards, with the retail and supply chain award categories free to enter.

In addition, for the first time, the SuperMeat & Fish Awards is combining with Meat Trades Journal’s SuperMeat & Fish Christmas Products Awards. Category winners are able to benefit from using the SuperMeat & Fish Awards logo on packaging and branding, and will receive coverage online and in print.

“We’re really excited about this year’s awards,” said Meat Trades Journal editor Rod Addy. “With a total of 34 awards up for grabs this year, there is a greater chance to win than ever before. We’ve already had an overwhelming level of interest, and those retailers that haven’t already entered are strongly encouraged to do so. What are you waiting for?”

Previous winners include Tesco, Marks & Spencer and The Co-operative Food, with Morrisons taking home the main award for 2016.

The awards lunch and drinks reception will take place on Friday, 8 September at London’s Hilton Bankside Hotel.

The deadline for the retail and supply chain awards is Friday, 19 May, while the product awards deadline is Friday, 26 May. To enter, click here or contact Catherine Lyne at catherine.lyne@wrbm.com or on 01293 610439.
