The team at Winter Tarn Dairy, based at Dockray Hall, Kendal, have just discovered that the company has won a bronze award for their Farm House Salted Butter in the Farm Shop & Deli Products Awards.

The annual awards now in their third year have quality and excellence at their heart. Supported and judged by leading farm shop and deli retailers, top wholesaler buyers and owners and industry experts, the Farm Shop & Deli Product Awards recognises and rewards the best in specialist food and drink products.

In late January through to mid-February, a panel of industry specialist judges, consisting of wholesalers, retailers, and experts, came together to evaluate an amazing collection of entries from independent brands.

The Farm Shop & Deli Product Awards are unique as they assess the overall business model of products. The panel of judges have reviewed everything about the product including the value chain and branding, along with taste, ensuring products are not just great tasting but are well set to successfully sell in the independent sector.

This enhanced criterion gives business confirmation to buyers that an awarded product is worth stocking, and the judges included well known retailers and wholesalers such as Booths, The Gorgeous Food Company, Cotswold Fayre, Diverse Fine Foods and Kitchen Food Company.

Commenting on the awards, Giorgio Rigali, Head of Communications, Exhibitions at William Reed commented: “Following another record-breaking year for entries, we are thrilled to announce our list of winners for 2024. NPD is critical to growth and these awards are unique, by way that producers get genuine informed feedback on their products and their business model which helps them refine their strategy. The list of winners truly highlights the quality and innovation that is available throughout the specialist retail sector, and we are delighted to be able to provide the opportunity for these businesses to have their products put in front of wholesalers, retailers and experts.”
