Over 100 delis have already been nominated and over 1,000 votes cast by their customers to find Olives Et Al’s Deli of the Year
The competition aims to find the place and people with the best attitude to running an independent food shop. The winner is generally a store with a warm, welcoming atmosphere, a love of great food and dedication to the sector.
It also champions and supports shops that are at the heart of every high street.
Leading producers such as Godminster, Tracklements, Laverstoke Park and Luscombe are offering their support for the first time, supplying the finalists with boxes of products.
The winner and runners up will win a trip to the Extremadura region, in Spain – an area famous for foods such as olives and Iberico ham.
Voters can still nominate and vote for their favourite deli at http://www.olivesetal.co.uk .The winning deli will be announced in London in September.
