The Norfolk Deli in Hunstanton wins title in the national Farm Shop and Deli Awards 2020

The Norfolk Deli in Hunstanton is celebrating winning a coveted regional title in this year's national Farm Shop & Deli Awards.

The deli, which is still open for business in Greevegate, won the East Anglia Regional Award. It was also shortlisted along with seven other finalists for the Deli of the Year title.

Mark Kacary, who founded the business in 2014 with his wife, Rosie, said: “We were the only Norfolk business represented at these awards this year. To have been a finalist in the Deli of the Year alongside the other fantastic delis from across the country was a huge achievement for a small business located in a small North Norfolk coastal town.

"We strive each year to be better and hope to bring this award home with us one day. When we saw that we hadn’t won, I decided to have my hour's exercise with the dogs, and only discovered that we had won the East Anglia regional award when my daughter phoned me from Vancouver to wish me a happy birthday.

"She said, but of course you do know that you have won an award, don’t you?”

The results of the awards, held in partnership with The Grocer, was broadcast via social media due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Said Rosie: "Winning the East Anglia Regional Award is an accolade we’re incredibly proud to have won, we can always wait another year to win the Deli of the Year award.”

The Norfolk Deli remains open and the website has been changed to make it easier for people to order products. The Norfolk Deli home delivery service offers everything from fruit and veg boxes to made-to-order meals.

“This is an incredibly important time for customers to support businesses like ours as we are helping to support a myriad of small Norfolk producers, many of whom people would see and buy from at farmers’ markets," said Mark.

The website has an online farmers' market section so that customers can still source their products.

"If we want to see our favourite small producers attend a farmers’ market in the future we need to ensure they survive. We hope we can help a little by giving customers access to their products through our website,” added Mark.
