ECR Ireland is delighted to announce that the ECR Ireland Heroes Awards will be held on Thursday 27th July 2023!

Nominate your ECR Heroes by 12pm, Monday 26th June.

Following on from hugely successful campaigns in 2021 & 2022, ECR Ireland will once again salute the standout heroes across the Irish grocery sector who deserve to be celebrated for their contribution to the industry.

The goal of the ECR Heroes Awards is to hero the workers across all departments and functions who have delivered time and time again and honour them at an awards ceremony on Thursday 27th July 2023.

These people & departments always go the extra mile and deserve to be acknowledged for their efforts to ensure that their hard work and dedication is rewarded.

Nominating an ECR Hero is a fantastic way to reward deserving colleagues and celebrate the positive difference they make in the workplace or wider community.
