Just desserts: Waterford food store picks up highly-prestigious Harrods award
An artisan food store in county Waterford has won a highly prestigious award which ranks it up there with the super exclusive Harrods in London.
Mezze, a Middle Eastern inspired specialist food and drink shop on Tramore’s Main Street has just been announced as the Guild of Fine Food best newcomer in the UK and Ireland at the Shop of the Year 2020 awards.
Established to recognise and promote excellence in independent retail, the rigorously judged accreditation scheme presented six trophies at Fodder Farm Shop and Café in Harrogate, where the world of fine food gathered to find out the winners of each category.
Having been trading for less than two years, Mezze was commended for its “warmth” and the “passion” of owners Nicola and Dvir, as well as the diversity and quality of its offering, much of which is made on site.
Judges for the awards included Stuart Gates, senior buyer at Harrods, award-winning retailer Tracey Colley and food writer, Patrick McGuigan.
