Why attend the Butcher's Shop of the Year?


    new customers and business


    your business regionally and nationally


    awareness of your product quality and service


    your exceptional business to a wide audience


    the loyalty, skills and hard work of your team


    with industry peers and suppliers


First you are assessed on your written entry and photographs by our judging panel. This panel is made up of experts including butchers and consultants with decades of experience in the meat industry. These panel members will scrutinise your written entries in detail so be sure not to leave anything out.


For those who reach the second phase, a consumer will visit you at your shop to assess the everyday operations of the business. This is a vital part of the judging process as it gives us the opportunity to see the business running on a normal day and see how you interact with your customers.
