Processing & Supply Chain awards

Awards to recognise processors and suppliers and these are free to enter.

Supermarket Meat Processor of the Year

Supermarket Fish Processor of the Year

The judging will be based on evidence provided, not prior knowledge. Answers should be tailored to the category, so companies entering ‘Best Supermarket Fish Processor’ should relate responses to fish processing, not non-seafood operations. High marks will be given to reflect progress on the processor’s own targets and benefits delivered to retailers through creative and successful projects. A strong and mutual working relationship between entrant and retailer should be demonstrated. The stress should be on the results and creativity of projects, not size of investment.

Supermarket Supply Chain Partnership of the Year

The awards are not judged on amount invested, in the initiative or the size of it, but on proportionate benefits to the business and to customers and improvements to existing supply chain strategy. Success with a complex project deserves more marks. The award could cover any part of the supply chain, from initial product procurement, transport to depot and storage to effective delivery to customers. Evidence will need to be shown when entering.
