Checkout Best In Fresh 2017 Award Winners Revealed

The winners of this years Checkout Best In Fresh 2017 award winners, were announced yesterday (4 July) at a ceremony that took place at The Shelbourne Hotel.

More than 200 retailers attended the event for the only awards ceremony to recognise excellence in fresh produce retailing.

The Checkout Best In Fresh Awards reward and promote excellence in fresh food retailing in Ireland, with retailers of all sizes and formats honoured.

won the Best Small Supermarket Award.

The Best Forecourt honour went to Mace Lissycasey, while Best Convenience Store was presented to Brett’s Centra, in Kildare

“The stores that we acknowledge at the Checkout Best In Fresh Awards can truly be called the real leaders in Ireland when it comes to fresh product retailing,” said Checkout editor, Jenny Whelan.

“Once again, both our winners and finalists have raised the bar when it comes to fresh produce, and can easily call themselves amongst the very best in Ireland, as well as in Europe.”

Other award winners at this year’s event included Musgrave, which was presented with the BestMultiple/Group Retailer award on the back of the work it has done in developing both SuperValu and Centra in recent years; Lidl Churchfield, which won the hotly-contested Best Discount Retailer category this year; and Celtech, which took home the Checkout Best in Fresh Industry Innovator award for its ab-initio system.
