Industry charity GroceryAid has revealed its new GroceryAid Awards scheme that will celebrate the outstanding support provided by the industry.
The refreshed format will recognise support provided by companies to three critical pillars; Awareness, Fundraising and Volunteering. With five criteria in each pillar, the new inclusive scheme means companies big and small can contribute in different ways to qualify for an award.
The charity have also revealed that a record 180 companies received a Gold, Silver, Bronze or Recognised Supporter accolade.
Steve Barnes, Chief Executive of GroceryAid said, “We get great support from across our industry which meant last year, we helped more grocery people than ever before at over 14,500 colleagues. It is important we recognise those companies that back us and we are grateful for their steadfast support in such tough trading times.”
