Wing of St Mawes The Cornish Fishmonger, has been commended as one of the best retailers in the South West Region in the Farm Shop & Deli Awards. The Cornish Fishmonger was one of nine regional champions, chosen by a panel of expert judges, who showed the highest levels of service, product knowledge, initiative, innovation and community involvement.
The Awards celebrate the unsung heroes of the high street and speciality retail scene with categories ranging from butchers, bakers, farm shops and delis through to garden centres, food halls and online businesses.
Richard Ford, Fresh Editor, The Grocer and Judge said "These Awards recognise those specialist retailers who are leading the way in the 21st century. From long-established companies, which continue to use their bespoke, proven recipes for success, to innovative start-ups, these businesses are the cream of the crop!"
The Farm Shop & Deli Awards received a record number of entrants from nearly 300 businesses across the UK, along with thousands of public votes from consumers supporting their favourite speciality retailers.
BBC Radio 2's Nigel Barden, Chair of Judges said "I have travelled the length and breadth of country, from Northern Ireland to Scotland and right down to the deep depths of the South West, visiting large and small independent speciality retailers to identify our ‘Regional Champions'. The hours spent on the road have been amply justified as we've been lucky enough to meet some hugely driven, focused and talented individuals championing the absolute best in fresh, local produce that the United Kingdom has to offer. Wing of St Mawes The Cornish Fishmonger are huge assets to their regions"
