Who’s your star of 2011? Today we’d like to give you a nudge in the direction of our nominations for The Grocer Cup.

The list of 10 heavyweights spans supermarkets, suppliers, convenience and foodservice. (Wholesalers shouldn’t feel left out, however – last year’s winner was Booker boss Charles Wilson.)

Peter Blakemore and Ranjit Boparan both made a splash with ambitious acquisitions, while Dalton Philips put himself on the map with an assured first year. Or will it finally be the turn of perennial bridesmaid Justin King?

You can read a full list of the nominees and cast your vote here – or look out for more information in this Saturday’s edition.
