LUDLOW Food Centre could be in line for a national award.

It is a finalist in the 2018 Farm Shop and Deli Awards.

The 2018 judging panel of industry experts met up last November at Windsor Farm Shop for a day of evaluation and deliberation. Secret visits and mystery shops followed over the next couple of months, before finally announcing the 2018 Farm Shop & Deli Awards category.

The awards continue to commend retailers’ success in speciality sectors and regions respectively. Category awards are up for grabs across 13 different specialisms including Food Hall of the Year and Ludlow Food Centre is one of the finalists in the running.

“We are thrilled to have been announced as a finalist in the Food Hall of the Year category at the prestigious Farm Shop and Deli Awards,” said Food Centre Managing Director Jon Edwards, who praised staff on the success.

“The awards are highly competitive and have such a high standard of entries that to reach this stage is a great reflection of the hard work and commitment of our staff in continuing to bring great food to our customers.”
