In the world of butchers, The Butcher’s Shop of the Year Awards are the equivalent of the Oscars. Here at Simpsons Butchers, we were delighted to scoop our first 'Midlands and East of England Butchers Shop of the Year' award for our flagship Heckington store for 2013-2014 and were astonished to win the same prestigious award in 2014-15.
“We were up against Norwich and Great Yarmouth, and both have been finalists before, so it was a proud achievement” said Gary. "This came just a day after we scooped gold in the prestigious Smithfield awards".
Brought to you by Meat Trades Journal, the Butcher's Shop of the Year Awards are renowned as the premier event for the UK butchery sector. They recognise excellence in craft butchery and winners enter an exclusive group representing the crème de la crème of British butchery. To win this fantastic accolade for a second consecutive year is a great achievement for the team, here at Simpsons Butchers and despite a very busy year with three new stores opening, we have maintained our all important high standards and are proud to be recognised by our peers.
