The Event

Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards has recognised and promoted independent butchers – their service, craft skills, and quality goods – for the last 27 years.

There are 11 categories to choose from, and we promise that one of them will be a good fit for your location and company strategy. The Awards give a national platform for favourable media coverage, whether the business is a family-run small butcher in a remote area or a network of shops.

The Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards are proud of the integrity of their two-phase judging procedure, which begins with paper judging by a panel of industry experts and then proceeds to the coalface, one-on-one in your business, with our chair of judges. All finalists are invited to a special awards lunch on April 26th, 2022 at the Farm Shop & Deli Show – NEC Birmingham, when the winners will be revealed. This is an event that is throbbing with expectation and excitement, where you can celebrate success and achievement in the butchery business with like-minded individuals.
