Delifonseca Dockside has been named as a finalist in the Farm Shop & Deli Awards for the third consecutive year.

A panel of industry experts decided Delifonseca will join their peers from the independent retail market at the Farm Shop & Deli Show at the NEC, Birmingham on Monday, April 24.

Proprietor of Delifonseca Candice Fonseca said: “Having been shortlisted in the Farm Shop & Deli Awards for the third year running, it offers a mixed sense of pride and excitement amongst the team. We are thrilled to have been selected from such a high volume and calibre of entrants to secure a place in the final.

“The news of our shortlist now means that we are we currently up for not just one but two awards, as we were also recently nominated in the ‘Taste’ category in the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards. With that in mind, 2017 is looking to be a very exciting year indeed.”

This year’s awards features a panel including Chair of Judges Nigel Barden, Co-Chair of Judges Elaine Lemm together with Holly Shackleton, Editor of Speciality Food and Jamie Hall from Neal’s Yard Dairy.

Chair of Judges Nigel Barden said: “It’s a joyous journey visiting the awards finalists around the UK and, with the standards being so high, it’s the attention to detail that really makes the winners stand out. It’s also apparent when staff have been well trained and crucially enjoy their work. Inspired, informed and enthusiastic folk behind the counter make a shopping experience so much better.

“It’ll be a privilege to hand over the accolades at the Farm Shop & Deli Show on April 24 and to witness the look on the winners’ faces that clearly illustrates how all their teams’ hard work has paid off.”
