We hear from Zena and Jon Tout, directors of Tout’s, which won Independent Retail Chain of the Year 2023; Laura Smith, manager at Sainsbury’s Upton, who won Store Manager of the Year 2023; Asda head of own brand strategy Joanna Johnson, who collected the award for Own Label Range of the Year won by Asda’s Just Essentials; and Alex Bartlett, director of Albert Bartlett, winner of Own Label Supplier of the Year.
