Best In Fresh Awards

The Checkout Best In Fresh Awards take place on Tuesday 4 July at The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. The Awards are open to all retail groups and independent retailers, including multiples, symbols, discounters and non-affiliated stores.

The Awards have been designed to reward, encourage and promote excellence in fresh food retailing in Ireland, with retailers of all sizes and formats recognised for their high standards in this area.

Taking place each year in the early summer, the award categories cover everything from fruit and veg offerings, to fresh meat and fish, as well as food-to-go. They also include six supplier awards, which are voted for by the industry and include Bakery, Fruit & Veg, Meat, Seafood, Dairy and Equipment suppliers.

Last year, over 250 retailers attended the Best In Fresh Awards, where some of the big winners included Garvey’s SuperValu Dingle, which took the award for Best Large Supermarket; Tesco Park Pointe, which won Best Medium Supermarket; and Rushe’s SuperValu Killiney, winner of the Best Small Supermarket Award.

Jenny Whelan, editor of Checkout magazine commented on the awards; “The Best In Fresh Awards are always a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the very best in Irish grocery retailing, as well as being a great networking event.

“Choosing last year’s winners was extremely difficult, as the calibre of entries was so high, and I expect this year to be no different.”
