As one of the most prestigious events in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector, we are honoured to be recognised for all our hard work.

In our latest post, read all about our nomination and why we can’t wait to attend the ceremony!

What are The Grocer Gold Awards?

The Grocer Gold Awards provide a platform for recognition and a symbol of quality and excellence for companies across the food and drinks industry.

Industry names including both large multiple suppliers and independent operators, go up against each other in over 20 categories to take the top spot and secure the highly acclaimed award.

The final decision lies with a prestigious panel of independent industry judges, alongside exclusively commissioned research from The Grocer and its partners, who will be crowning the final award winners during a glittery black-tie event.

The Exporter of the Year award

The categories focus on key business areas, such as innovation, customer satisfaction and commitment to the industry, forming a mixture of self-entry and special groups.

In the exporter of the year category, Smylies will be going up against three exporting giants, Atom Brands, Mr Lee’s Pure Foods Co. and The Whisky Exchange.

As a family-run business, specialising in the consolidation and export of British food and drink, Smylies have expanded worldwide since 2003, building relationships with distributors, retailers, supermarkets and more.

With our excellent service and continuing innovation, including our brand new Smylies shop, we hope to bag a gold and highlight our on-going business success to customers and industry peers!

The awards ceremony is a must-attend celebration in the grocery calendar, and will be held at the Guildhall in London, on Tuesday 11th June.

Hosted by Rt. Hon. Lord William Hague, the Smylies team will be sat amongst The Grocer Gold Award hopefuls. View all the 2019 finalists and the categories they’re competing in on The Grocer Gold Awards website.
