Arch Retail Solutions Co-Sponsors Cleaver Awards

Arch Retail Solutions Co-Sponsors Cleaver Awards. National Cleaver Awards is a prestigious recognition for product and service excellence in the South African butchery industry. The competition was launched in 2005 to meet the needs of the consumer by raising standards among butcheries and, since then, these awards have proven to do just that. Arch Retail Solutions is proud to announce its involvement with the 2024 event as co-sponsor.

For the 2024 competition, more than 1 000 butcheries entered. Voting commenced 1 February, where customers have been given the opportunity to vote for their favourite butcher. The top performing butcheries in each region and nationally will then anonymously be visited by SAMIC, the South African Meat Industry Company, tasked with ensuring the quality and safety of meat in South Africa.

Butcheries are competing in the following categories:

Butcheries with three or less till points

Butcheries with four or more till points

Food market/supermarket butcheries

Regional and national winners are announced from the above categories. The following Arch family members were winners in the 2023 competition: Uitkyk Meat & Supermarket (Pretoria), Impala Vleis (Brits), OK Foods Cambridge (East London) and Hartenbos Slaghuis (Hartenbos).
