The 2014 Retailer of the Year Awards were presented during the gala Market City Ball at Burswood on Friday evening.

We are pleased to announce that some Great Greengrocer members were awarded in 2014 Retailer of the Year Awards.

Fresh Provisions Bicton was awarded the Metropolitan Retailer of the Year, Fruit Basket was awarded the Best Small Store and Geraldton Fruit & Vegetable Supply was awarded for both Excellence in Apple & Pear Retailing and Excellence in Potato Retailing.

This prestigious event has been running for 12 consecutive years and is a joint initiative between the Chamber of Fruit and Vegetables Industries WA (Chamber) and the Perth Market Authority.

"The annual retailer of the year awards acknowledge WA's finest retail stores for excellence in fresh fruit and vegetable retailing", said Stephen Ward, CEO, and Perth Market Authority.

The awards are open to all retailers including major supermarket chains, independent retailers, small stores and weekend markets. There are eight store award categories and three fresh produce award categories which stores can compete in.
