Ireland’s Forecourt & Convenience Retailer Awards

Supported by Ireland’s Forecourt & Convenience Retailer magazine – Northern Ireland and the Republic’s only specialist magazine for the forecourt sector - the IF&CR Awards have proved an incredible success since launching in 2005.

With over 400 entries each year, the IF&CR Awards are universally supported throughout the region by leading wholesalers, symbol groups, oil companies and independent retailers, rewarding professionalism and entrepreneurial spirit, acknowledging innovation and commitment, while continuing to drive industry standards ever higher.

The awards recognise and celebrate the importance of this multi-million Euro industry, and what its continued development has meant for local communities and the wider economy.

The best fuel and convenience retailers battle it out for one of the 17 highly-regarded accolades each year, attracting pride from their indigenous villages, town and cities, with which they have come to play a vital role.

The awards also celebrate the industry’s inspirational figures, including Store Manager of the year, and the Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognises the contribution to both the industry and the economy by the sector’s most pivotal characters.

The competition is independently judged by Spotcheck and the judging process is the most thorough in the industry, making these awards a powerful and influential force in one of the region’s most competitive, innovative and lucrative business environments.
