We Won! Observer Food Monthly Awards 2017

We Won!!! Rafi’s Spicebox named Best Independent Retailer by The Observer Food Monthly!!

Earlier in the year we asked you, our lovely customers, to vote for us in the Observer Food Monthly Awards. And guess what? We won!

We can proudly say that, thanks to you being kind enough to vote for us in your numbers, we are the Best Independent Retailer in the 14th Observer Food Monthly Awards. So THANK YOU!

We’ve always had a huge respect for the Observer Food Monthly, and we’re absolutely honoured to have won what, in our eyes, is the country’s highest accolade in the Food Industry. We wouldn’t be in this position now without you, our fantastic customers, who were kind enough to vote for us.

We also need to send out a massive thanks to our brilliant team and family, who are an amazing group with incredible passion and knowledge. Finally, we owe a great thanks to Rafi, who, like many Indian Mothers, is probably looking down on us with a proud yet slightly critical grin. We owe all of this to her unrivalled talent and inspiration.

Now in their 14th year, the Observer Food Monthly awards, supported by Marks & Spencer, reward the finest in British Food & Drink. We were invited to this year's ceremony, which was held on Thursday 12th October at the Freemason’s Hall in London. The evening was hosted by Jay Rayner and Nigella Lawson, and had a star studded guest list including Jamie Oliver and Nigel Slater.

You can read all about our win in the The Observer this Sunday (15th October), and feel free to pop into our shops and say congrats to our brilliant team!
