Top prizes, voted for by the show’s trade buyer visitors and industry experts, were awarded to three of the brands. These included the 3 highest voted brands winning a free place on the Grocery Accelerator ground-breaking, ‘Prepare & Scale - 16 week, fast-track programme’ (worth £1,450). The 'Best in Show' prize went to one lucky business; an amazing 12 month mentoring and support package. Value: Priceless! - as it’s a prize you can’t buy.
