The winners of this year’s Grocer Gold Awards have been announced.
The prestigious ceremony took place on Tuesday 14 June, with a glittering reception at the Guildhall in London. It was a wonderful evening, which saw the industry come together to celebrate what has been a challenging but fantastic year in the FMCG sector.
The evening was hosted by actor and impressionist, Rory Bremner, and Adam Leyland, Editor of The Grocer. Together they proudly announced the winners of the hotly contested The Grocer Gold Awards 2017.
