SMALL suppliers can get some support from the Co-op as its search for the Small Producer of the Year begins.

The retailer has teamed-up with the Quality Food Awards to launch the second annual search to showcase the quality of smaller, local producers. Finalists could get their product listed in their local Co-op store as part of package of benefits.

Sue Wade, from the Co-op, said: ‘It’s exciting to collaborate with smaller producers, it’s their innovation, quality, passion and traditions which ensures their products are loved locally.’
