The winners were announced at a glittering black-tie presentation ceremony on Thursday 24th September, at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London.

Debbie Robinson, SPAR UK Managing Director, said: “The Retail Industry Awards are a truly unique occasion, marking the only time of year when the whole industry gets together to recognise and reward independents and chains alike. We are delighted to have followed on from our success last year to win the 2015 Symbol Group of the Year Award and to be also presented with the Symbol Initiative of the Year award for our Shop & Win mobile promotional campaign is fantastic achievement. Everyone in the entire organisation has worked very hard and is very deserving of these highly regarded and sought after titles.”

2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the Retail Industry Awards. The awards have become firmly established as the ‘Oscars’ of the grocery industry, celebrating excellence across a raft of different categories.

There is no restriction on store size, meaning the smallest retailers are recognised alongside the largest supermarket chains.
