Top food wholesaler acclaims Northern Irish suppliers

Henderson Wholesale, the leading Northern Irish independent food wholesaler and owner of Spar, Eurospar and Vivo branded stores, has shortlisted food producers for its annual Local Supplier Awards.

Established in 2012, the Local Supplier Awards celebrate the outstanding products, practises and ranges offered to SPAR and EUROSPAR stores in Northern Ireland and enables The Henderson Group to recognise the companies which supply to its extensive fresh and ambient ranges.

This year, companies were invited to submit entries across five categories which included Own Brand Supplier of Year, open to companies who supply goods for Henderson Wholesale’s popular range of own brand products; Best Direct to Store Supplier; Brand Innovation Award; the CSR focused Tomorrow Matters Award and the Overall Local Supplier of the Year.

Now in its fifth year, the competition received a record level of over 40 entries from both small, emerging supply companies right through to hugely successful, internationally renowned food producers, showing the high standard and calibre of our local agri–food industry. 

The winners of the prestigious awards will be announced at a special breakfast ceremony at the Balmoral Show next Friday.

Henderson Group fresh food director Neal Kelly, commenting on the awards, says: “The Balmoral Show is a great opportunity to showcase the incredible work of our local suppliers who work hard throughout the year to deliver such exceptional products for our customers.
