Shortlist for year’s best projects revealed


CEDA has revealed the shortlisted entries for its annual Grand Prix Awards ahead of the association’s 2013 conference in Scotland next month.

The awards are designed to recognise and reward outstanding achievement among CEDA’s 80-plus distributor members.

62 separate projects were entered into this year’s competition, with the judges narrowing those down to a shortlist of 16.

The 16 shortlisted projects are split between just eight distributors.

Recently-retired industry stalwarts John Savage and Brian Booth – formerly of Foster Refrigerator and Howell Cummings respectively – will decide the winners.

They will make their final decisions after visiting each of the shortlisted sites over the next two weeks.

There are six separate categories covering both small and large projects in the cost and profit sectors, as well as one for the project that demonstrates outstanding customer service. An award is also given for the most environmentally-friendly project.

The winners will be announced at the CEDA Conference, which is taking place on April 11-12 in St Andrews, Scotland.
