Discount supermarket Aldi has been crowned Grocer of the Year at the Grocer Gold Awards, for the third time in four years.

Discounter Aldi presented a “compelling” case for victory according to the judges, and fought off competition from Lidl and Ocado to take the accolade.

Greencore picked up two awards, for Branded and Own-label Supplier of the Year. Tesco was voted Britain’s Favourite Supermarket by the UK public and Andy Savage from Morrisons won Store Manager of the Year.

Discounters also triumphed in last year’s The Grocer Own Label Food & Drink Awards, with Lidl and Aldi drawing in top place with Asda.
