Local cheesemonger La Cave à Fromage from Brighton and Hove are entered into the Farm Shop & Deli Awards, in partnership with Olives Et Al, to recognise excellence in independent speciality retailers and need your help to win!
The Awards recognise the very best standards in speciality retail and to celebrate the highest levels of service, product knowledge, initiative, innovation and community involvement. The aim is to highlight our highly driven and passionate local businesses like La à Cave a Fromage, to generate the coverage they deserve. Winning this Award would help build them as a destination, putting them on the map both regionally and nationally and in turn, bringing interest to Brighton and Hove.
Our expert panel of Judges, which includes BBC Radio 2’s Gastronome Nigel Barden, will need these invaluable consumer votes which are part of the judging criteria. Nigel commented “Last year I was 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. Our winners are set to represent a gold standard in the speciality retail arena. I’m extremely excited to see what entries we receive this year!”
David Deaves, Manger, at La Cave à Fromage said “’It’s really exciting to be taking part in the cheesemonger of the year awards, not only will it benefit the city and the shop, but it is also testament to the hard work of the team at La Cave. It would also not be possible without the continuing support of the local and winder community of Brighton and Hove and I believe the residents would be very proud to have the countries best cheesemonger in their city”
The Awards recognise excellence within the speciality retail market, focusing on independent speciality retailers who sell regional fresh/farm produce or have a delicatessen counter offering thirteen categories to enter under and win including cheesemonger of the Year.
Entrants will also have the opportunity to win as a Champion. The Regional winners will progress through to have the opportunity to win the overall coveted title of Farm Shop & Deli Awards Retailer of the Year announced at the Farm Shop & Deli Show, Monday 20th April 2015 at Birmingham’s NEC.
