grocer gold awards 2016

Entries have opened for the 2017 Grocer Gold Awards, the biggest and most prestigious night of the year in the food and drink industry.

There will be 27 awards this year, including two new awards and a criteria change to a third.

The new Waste Not Want Not award has been introduced in support of the major food waste campaign launched by The Grocer, which is open to retailers and suppliers whose pioneering approaches or exhaustive investigation of their own supply chain has delivered the most compelling results.

Another new award for the Food to Go Retailer of the Year has also been introduced, while the newly named Symbol/Franchise Retailer of the Year award has been widened to incorporate franchise operators.

The glittering black tie event will be held on Tuesday 13 June 2017 at London’s historic Guildhall. The entry deadline is 3 March. The shortlist will be published 21 April.
