Craft Butcher magazine achieves Finalist status in National Awards
We are delighted to hear that Craft Butcher magazine has been revealed as one of only four finalists in the ‘Magazine of the Year’ category of the Trade Association Awards.
Run by the Trade Association Forum (TAF), who represent 174 trade associations and over 190,000 businesses, the awards exist to recognise, reward and promote best practice amongst trade associations in the UK. Magazine of the Year sits within the ‘Engage’ section of the awards, which according to the TAF,
‘recognise leadership in engaging with members, their teams and their stakeholders.’
The Trade Association Awards are independently judged by fellow trade associations and sector leaders and are supported by government, with the Department for Business and Trade forming part of the final judging panel.
Eleanor O’Brien, Managing Director of National Craft Butchers, commenting on the announcement said,
‘We are beyond thrilled for Craft Butcher magazine to have achieved finalist status in an awards judged by our own peers, other trade associations. We strive to ensure each issue is packed with content that is genuinely useful to the running of our members businesses, whilst keeping it an interesting and easy read for a busy craft butcher. To have achieved this accolade less than three years after re-launching the magazine is a real achievement.’
Winners will be announced on 22nd February at an awards ceremony in London.
National Craft Butcher’s President, David Gigli, added,
‘We’ve received great feedback from our members about Craft Butcher magazine so it’s very rewarding to see that being recognised, especially against stiff competition from many, much larger trade associations. On behalf of the Executive Council I’d like to congratulate the team at Craft Butcher and will be keeping my fingers crossed for the final.’
