Retailer of the Year award

We were delighted to be announced as Retailer of the Year at the 2018 Food and Farming Industry Awards, awarded at the House of Commons.

The Food and Farming Industry Awards are staged annually by Farm Business and Lewis Business Media to recognise excellence and innovation across the agricultural sector. This award is presented to either a retailer or foodservice outlet that has supported British agriculture and includes sourcing policies which favours British produce.

Farm Business publisher Simon Lewis said: “Congratulations to Morrisons who were deserved winners on the night. Once again these awards have highlighted the breadth and depth of talent, drive and ambition in the farming sector. We are delighted to recognise the achievements of the winners, but also all of those shortlisted, which, in itself, is a great achievement.”

Chair of judges Meurig Raymond said: “It was a real privilege to chair the judging panel and every category posed real dilemmas for the judging panel, such was the excellence of all the entries. Huge congratulations to all the winners who each managed to demonstrate something different and special about their businesses.”

Good Egg Award

We received a Good Egg Award from Compassion in World Farming in June 2018 to recognise our business ambition to only source eggs from hens in cage-free systems. All our shell eggs are now from free range production systems, 2 years ahead of our target of cage-free production by 2022. All our ingredient eggs will be from cage-free production by 2025.

As part of this award, we are tracking our progress against this commitment below:
