National Grocery Retail Awards 2024 – Entries Open Until 29 May

Entries for the National Grocery Retail Awards (NGRA) 2024, organised by Checkout magazine, are officially open until 29 May.

The NGRA is a combination of the awards for fresh-food retailing – the Checkout Best in Fresh Awards – and the leading awards for the supplier industry, the National Retail Supplier Awards.

The amalgamation aims to create the largest and most prestigious awards for the industry in Ireland.

Winners of last year’s awards include SuperValu RathgarAldi Ireland and Keeling’s.

Categories recognised include Best Retail Group of the Year, Best Off-Licence, Best Cash-and-Carry and Best Sustainability Initiative.


The NGRA honour best-in-class retailers and suppliers alike, and the organisers hope to boost the profile of excellent businesses within the sector.

Recognition in the awards aims to boost worker pride at high levels of service, and to promote product excellence.


The first round of judging will see entrants assessed by an anonymous, independent shopper as she/he/they visit/s the store.

Stores that successfully reach the second round will be visited by a member of the official judging panel.

Judges will consider the results of both visits in their final decision.


For retail group and supplier categories, a panel of industry experts will be leading the assessments.

The more detailed submissions entrants can submit, the better.

Entrants should limit the length of submissions to four (4) A4 pages, maximum, and address the criteria on the official application form.

‘Innovation And Responsiveness To Consumer Trends’

“The National Grocery Retail Awards are the most prestigious and inclusive awards for the grocery retail sector in Ireland,” says Maev Martin, editor, Checkout magazine.

“Since their inception, in 2021, they have become one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the Irish grocery retail calendar.


“The individual stores, retailers and suppliers who excel in the National Grocery Retail Awards are those that have demonstrated innovation and responsiveness to consumer trends.

“These are the hallmarks of a leading grocery supply and retail operation.”

As Ireland’s dedicated magazine for the grocery retail and FMCG sectors, Checkout is a must-read title for senior managers and top-level executives across the retail sphere.

It is through its reputation as an award-winning publication that Checkout aims to recognise and promote excellence across the sector.
