Help Hunters of Helmsley to win ‘Delicatessen of the Year’ in the Farm Shop & Deli Awards 2018

Local delicatessen Hunters of Helmsley is calling upon any fans of the shop to help them win its category in the Farm Shop & Deli Awards 2018.

The awards, which are in their fifth year, celebrate the highest levels of service, product knowledge, initiative, innovation and community involvement in the sector, drawing attention to highly driven and passionate local businesses across the country. They focus on independent, speciality retailers who sell regional fresh/farm produce or have a delicatessen counter. They are offered across thirteen categories, including Delicatessen, which Hunters has been nominated for.

Members of the public are being asked to vote for their favourite retailers to help them get through to the next stage of the competition. Regional winners will be chosen, who will then progress through to a national competition to have the chance of being crowned ‘Farm Shop & Deli Awards Retailer of the Year’. This will be announced at the Farm Shop & Deli Show, Monday 16th April 2018 at Birmingham’s NEC.

Hunters of Helmsley has been based on the Market Place of Helmsley for more than 25 years. In 2015 it was named Britain’s Best Small Shop at the House of Commons.

Nigel Barden, chair of judges and BBC Radio 2 Gastronome commented: “The Farm Shop and Deli sector continues to grow in size and importance, as do these awards, which crucially acknowledge the finest in the field, in both retail and online. They also help consumers track down the finest out there, as these talented retailers continue to push the boundaries.”    

Christine Garnett, who owns Hunters of Helmsley with her husband Chris, said: “We would love to win one of these coveted awards. As a small business owner you put your heart and soul into it, and myself and Chris are really passionate about what we do. It’s always a fantastic boost for the whole team to receive a nomination for an award, and we thank our loyal and wonderful customers who vote for us and put us forward for things. We hope we can do you proud!”
