The organisers of the annual Farm Shop & Deli Awards are looking for customers to nominate farm shops and specialist food retailers in the Midlands region for the title of Best Midlands Food Retailer.

New for 2021, the awards are placing emphasis on how specialist retailers have adapted their business and supported their community, staff and suppliers this year, rather than focusing on financial success. Consumers and suppliers are being asked to nominate retailers worthy of winning via an online nomination form by 31st October. There is a chance to win a foodie hamper from Fortnum & Mason for everyone who nominates.

Those who have been nominated will be contacted in November and invited to enter via a quick and easy online entry form. Retailers do not need to wait to be nominated and can enter themselves using the same online entry form. The award’s judges, headed by returning Chair Nigel Barden, food and drink broadcaster, will score all online entries. Shortlisted retailers will be announced in January and invited to attend the winners’ announcement live from the Farm Shop & Deli Show on Monday 12th April 2021 at the NEC, Birmingham. Here the ‘Commended’ and ‘Best in Region winners’ will be revealed, culminating in a wonderful celebration of the speciality sector.

The Awards are open to the following food retailers: –

  • Baker
  • Butcher
  • Cheesemonger
  • Delicatessen
  • Farm Shop – Large Retailer
  • Farm Shop – Small Retailer
  • Fishmonger
  • Food Hall

The Farm Shop & Deli Awards have been running for the past eight years and have celebrated, and supported, the speciality retail market by utilising their reputation and reach in the sector.
