Taste of the West Awards 2016

This week saw the 25th anniversary Taste of the West Food and Drink Awards, which was held at Exeter Cathedral. Mark and Helen Gribble went to the event, alongside David Whitaker who is the manager of our Ashburton shop which was a finalist in the best South West Butcher’s Shop category.

Gribble’s Plympton has won this award for the last two years, and for our newest shop at Ashburton to be in the running for the prize after only nine months of being open is a huge achievement for the team.

We were judged as runners up on the day, but each of our four shops has achieved the highest accreditation of gold – the fifth year running for Ivybridge, Occombe and Plympton! This is alongside each of our shops also being awarded the best possible 5* food hygiene awards.
