Vegan supermarket nominated for BBC award
File this news under ‘Fuck yeah!’.
A legendary vegan workers’ co-operative, which has served the Manchester community for two decades (yes, 20 years), has been shortlisted for a national BBC Food and Farming award.
Unicorn Grocery in Chorlton is a fabulous store packed solid with fresh produce, locally-sourced deli foods, ciders, pantry items, personal care items and much more.
In fact, you could comfortably find everything you need for a weekly shop under their roof.
The BBC Food and Farming Awards are broken up into several categories, with Unicorn being shortlisted in the Best Food Retailer category.
The BBC explain this category by saying:
This award celebrates the local shops making a positive difference to our lives, our high streets and communities by selling great quality, delicious and affordable food. Whether it’s a butchers or fishmongers, a bakery, deli or farm shop – we asked what is great about the food they source, the service they provide and their impact on the surrounding area.
I think it is fantastic that a completely vegan grocery store is one of just three businesses to have been nominated in this category.
We can’t do anything to help Unicorn Grocery win their category as the awards are completely judge voted, but we can send out best wishes to them via social media.
Let them know how thankful you are for the hard work they do for their community and how pleased you are to see them nominated by sending a message of support via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
FUCK YES!!!!!!!!!!! This is SO exciting!!! I have been going to Unicorn Grocery every time I visited Manchester for over 10 years, they are AMAZING! Everyone working there is so helpful and their prices are really reasonable – and the best thing, their jute bags with all the awesome messages on them! Truly deserved!!! 🙂
