SuperMeat & Fish Awards judging to commence

Entries are now closed for the SuperMeat & Fish Awards 2012 and judging will soon be under way as the UK’s most prestigious retail meat competition steps up a gear.

This year will see seven retailers taking part, including Aldi, Asda, The Co-operative, Lidl, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Tesco, competing across a range of product categories, while Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Tesco will go head-to-head in the store awards.

The SuperMeat & Fish Awards, organised by Meat Trades Journal, are the leading awards of their type and provide a showcase for the best products and retailers throughout the UK. Judging both products and stores across a range of categories, the awards climax with one retailer taking home the title of Meat & Fish Retailer of the Year.

Ed Bedington, editor of MTJ, said: “These awards continue to go from strength to strength and I’m excited to see what this year brings. The meat and fish areas of multiple retailing are among the most dynamic categories in the stores, and innovation and standards across the range are first-rate.

“We’ve got a great panel of expert judges, who will be getting their teeth into the products later in April, and I’m looking forward to seeing the flair and innovation this competition always provides.”

The awards will take place at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London on 5 July, and the event is sponsored by Bpex, Eblex, Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales, the Livestock & Meat Commission and Vion Food UK.
