The search for the UK’s best farm retailers has begun, with entries now open for the Farm Retail Association’s Farm Retail awards 2020. Members of the FRA can now enter their farm shops, farmer’s markets and trade suppliers for free for a chance to win in the Large Farm Shop of the Year (turnover over £1.5m); Small Farm Shop of the Year (turnover under £1.5m); Farmers’ Market of the Year; Farm Café/ Restaurant of the Year and Trade Supplier Member of the Year categories.
New to the 2020 edition of the awards is the Rising Star Award, which will celebrate farm shops or markets that have been in business for 36 months or less. The Lifetime Achievement Award is also open for nominations for the first time.
Chairman Rob Copley commented, “These are the only awards that are judged by fellow farm retailers and to win is a huge accolade. We would encourage everyone to get involved, this is your chance to recognise your team and promote your achievements to your customers. We wish you luck!”
Submissions for the awards will close on 1st December 2019.
