Nominations for Scottish Craft Butchers “Extra Mile Award” now open
Scottish Craft Butchers have launched the nominations process for their annual Extra Mile Award celebrating the work of local butchers, ahead of a presentation scheduled for Wednesday 24th November in Dundee.
The initiative is celebrated every year as part of the company’s annual training awards. Voted for by the public, the award will be presented to an individual who has “gone above and beyond to support customers, colleagues and the business during the challenges of the past year.”
Scottish Craft Butchers have announced that the selected winner will receive a £100 prize and the person who nominated them will secure a £100 voucher to spend in the butcher’s shop.
“A chance to say ‘thank you'”
Gordon King, executive manager of Scottish Craft Butchers, said: “This is a chance for the public to recognise and reward someone at their local butcher’s shop who stands out from the crowd. Someone who has shown exceptional commitment to the trade, support to the customers or enthusiasm for the job.”
He continued: “This is the public’s chance to say ‘thank you’ to an industry that has never missed a beat throughout the entire Coronavirus crisis, and single out the exceptional individuals who have safeguarded supplies and service – often going that extra mile – for their customers. It’s important that we let them know just how much they are appreciated and the customers are the best people to do exactly that.”
