Local Farm Shop Uncle Henry’s from Gainsborough are entered into the Farm Shop & Deli Awards 2016, with founding partner Olives Et Al, to recognise excellence in independent speciality retailers and need your help to win!
The Awards recognise the very best standards in specialist 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 Uncle Henry’s , 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 Gainsborough.
Nigel Barden, chair of judges and BBC Radio 2 Gastronome commented:
There are some very focused, driven and talented food retailers in Britain, who deserve to be nourished and encouraged. It’s marvellous that these awards can bring them to much wider attention. The 2015 Awards revealed some truly brilliant winners, many of whom source produce locally and it’s marvellous to see that there’s a good spread of outstanding retailers in both urban and rural settings. The British food and drink offer has never been better, as richly illustrated by the Farm Shop & Deli Awards.
Emma Ward, General Manager at local Farm Shop Uncle Henry’s said
Here at Uncle Henry’s we are passionate about great tasting home-grown and local food. We are also proud to stock products from over 45 Lincolnshire producers; our local food heroes! Winning the farm shop and deli awards would bring recognised achievement to our fantastic team who work hard to source our fantastic local products, make our delicious Uncle Henry’s items and serve our customers with passion and enthusiasm for the products we sell.
The Awards recognise excellence within the specialist retail market, focusing on independent speciality retailers who sell regional fresh/farm produce or have a delicatessen counter offering twelve categories to enter under and win including Farm Shop of the Year.
