About Us

The Butcher’s Shop of the Year Awards are the only UK awards dedicated to recognising this vital sector of the UK market, and to reward vibrant, progressive, locally based businesses.

Formatted specifically to champion best practice in the local meat chain through the producer and processor to retail, these awards set out to recognise high standards of service and presentation, skill and initiative.

The awards are also a celebration of the incredible work being done in this sector, whether through selling game, speciality sausages and pies or by widening the butcher’s shop offer to the consumer to include quality delicatessen, sauces and accompaniments.

The awards are to reward excellence and recognise the professional and creative development that is driving the butchery sector forward. Raise standards throughout the local supply chain, and encourage effective communication between producers, primary and further processors, other service providers and retailers.

The Awards are brought to you by MTJ which is part of William Reed Ltd
