This week we were delighted to sponsor and attend the Butcher’s Shop of the Year Awards at the County Hall, Westminster.
This high-profile awards ceremony, hosted by Meat Trades Journal, showcases the best Butchers in the industry and offers awards across a wide range of categories from Young Butcher of the Year to the coveted Butcher’s Shop of the Year 2018.
In total there were thirteen winners, from butcher’s shops across the UK and the event organisers commented that the awards reflected another busy year in the sector, with each winning entry showing a real proactive approach to innovation and quality.
Stuart Revill, Managing Director at Butchers Sundries, was delighted to present the award for ‘New Butchery Business of the Year’ to Newcastle based, Block and Bottle, a multi-award winning free range butchers and craft beer shop.
The top accolade of ‘Butcher’s Shop of the Year 2018’ was awarded to Kirk’s, a butchers and delicatessen based in Skegness. Aidan Fortune, Deputy Editor from the Meats Trade Journal commented that “All of the finalists and category winners displayed an extremely high standard, making judging for this year’s competition very difficult. Every single one of these businesses are at the very top of their game and are providing a fantastic service to their communities’.
We would like to offer a huge congratulations to all the finalists and winners along with a special thanks to Meat Trades Journal for organising such a fantastic event. The Butchers Sundries team were delighted to attend the Awards to meet existing customers and having the opportunity to network with others in the industry. We were delighted to be involved in this event, and due to its huge success, we look forward to sponsoring the Awards again in 2019.
