Don’t forget to enter The Grocer Gold Awards 2004, which are sponsored by software solutions supplier MEI.

Multiples, symbol groups, independent retailers and wholesalers are all invited to enter three key awards categories - best business initiative, best consumer initiative and best own label range development.

In addition, there will be an award for the country’s best independent chain.

This award is only open for those retailers who feature on The Grocer’s Top 50 list of the UK’s biggest privately owned grocery chains.

The winners of all this year’s Grocer Gold Awards will be revealed at a business dinner at London’s Dorchester Hotel on June 16.

All entries for the awards must be received by March 19. So hurry! Contact Nicola Smith on 01293 610427 for further information.
