The Grocer Cup
The Grocer Cup for Outstanding Business Achievement is one of the grocery industry’s top accolades. It is awarded to the individual who has inspired exceptional results in the preceding year and has made the biggest contribution to the grocery industry. The Grocer Cup is a special award because readers of The Grocer vote from a shortlist of senior industry players to decide who wins.
The Grocer Cup is part of the prestigious annual IGD Food Industry Awards, which play a vital part in celebrating innovation and best practice. The awards are given to food and non-food companies throughout the industry and recognise success across a range of categories, including sustainability, consumer understanding, supply chain excellence and many more.
