Finalists for SuperMeat & Fish announced

The judges have cast their votes and come up with the shortlist for this year’s SuperMeat & Fish product awards.

Some of the best products from top retailers have entered the awards and a team of expert judges have tasted, tested and come up with finalists for 12 product categories.

Last year Marks & Spencer won the Best Overall Product Award for The Grill Pork Belly Hog Roast with Kentish Apple Sauce & Crackling Crumb. On that occasion, lamb, beef and game buyer at Marks & Spencer Tom Harvey said the retailer was “thrilled to win the award” and that it “cemented Marks & Spencer’s reputation as leaders in product development”.
