Ireland's Top Grocers Honoured In Checkout National Grocery Retail Awards

Ireland's leading grocery operators have been honoured in the inaugural National Grocery Retail Awards, hosted by Checkout Ireland, ESM's sister publication.

The award for Ireland's Retailer of the Year went to SuperValu, while the Ireland's Discounter of the Year award was presented to Lidl Ireland.

SuperValu was named Ireland's Fresh Food Retailer of the Year, Aldi Ireland took the Ireland's Best Supporter of Local Suppliers award, while Dunnes Stores won the award for Ireland's Best Private Label Range. In addition, a number of individual grocery outlets were honoured.

The new awards scheme is an amalgam of the Checkout Best in Fresh awards and the Checkout National Retail Supplier Awards, with a number of additional categories added, including Ireland’s Retailer of the Year, Best Off-Licence, Best Cash & Carry, Best Sustainability Initiative, Best Private Label Range, and Best Community Initiative.

“The individual stores, retailers and suppliers that have excelled in these awards are those that have demonstrated innovation and responsiveness to consumer trends,” says Maev Martin, editor, Checkout magazine.

“These are the hallmarks of a leading grocery supply and retail operation. Our winners have set new standards because they bring their passions and dreams of what a store can be to life to create the perfect shopping experience."
