We’ve won 14 awards at last weekend’s Grocer Own Label Food and Drink Awards. A fantastic achievement as that’s double what we won last year!

GOLA_2017_AwardsLogo_CCThis year, in a change to the usual silver/gold awards, there was a Category Champion and Innovation Winner for each category. The awards for innovation are new this year and allow those products that have developed over the last 14 months to be celebrated too.

It was a weekend to be proud of as we also won Sandwich Convenience Retailer of the Year for the third year running. The team were delighted to collect their award at the event.

Breige Donaghy, Director of Delicious Food said:

“It’s fantastic that we’ve won for the third year in a row Convenience Sandwich Retailer of the Year at the Sammies. It’s a superb result and a reflection of the great work the team have delivered over the last 12 months.”

As Steve Murrells said in his recent colleague Q&A, we know that our products are as good as anything in the marketplace today. These awards confirm that having been judged by both consumer and expert panels.

Look out for these products and our sandwiches in store and why not try an award winner next time you shop. Well done to everyone involved.
