Our Producer of the Year Awards

The Producer of the Year Awards are our opportunity to shine a light on the hardworking, dedicated teams behind the local produce we sell in our stores.

Now in their fifth year, the awards are a celebration of local farmers, growers and producers from across Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. They aim to raise the profile of food and drink producers in our region, as well as highlight the importance of shopping locally.

From Monday 2 January to Tuesday 31 January 2017, members and customers were able to vote for their favourite producers both online and in East of England Co-op stores. These votes will select the three County Champions, who will then be visited by a panel of food and farming experts who'll select the overall Producer of the Year 2017, to be announced at our annual Supplier Supper in March.
