THE DRINKS RETAILING AWARDS
The Drinks Retailing Awards is one of the biggest nights on the UK drinks industry’s calendar.
It’s the only event where supermarkets, independents and convenience retailers come together to celebrate the brilliant achievements of the whole off-trade, throwing the spotlight on businesses that excel in product range, customer service and making drinks special. Our judging process is one of the most rigorous on the awards circuit, ensuring that Drinks Retailing Awards winners really are the very best in the business.
For the winners, the awards bring industry prestige, enhanced profile, marketing muscle and increased sales potential.
The awards night itself brings together supermarket buyers, independent retailers and our amazing sponsors for a very special networking and social occasion. The 2024 event is on Tuesday, February 6.
“We are thrilled to have won Convenience Drinks Retailer of the Year at the Drinks Retailing Awards. The DRAs have a huge reputation for being one of the most highly respected competitions in the trade due to the calibre of entrants, nominees and the judging process.
“The rigorous judging process included exclusive consumer research based on perceived value, quality of the shopping experience, innovation, ranging, out of stocks and new product selection. This information was considered alongside sales and market trend data.
“This win is a great testament to the efforts of all our Off Licence traders at the SPAR RDCs and the team at Central Office.”
