Awards

Whilst we’ve won more than our fair share of awards, it has to be said the biggest award we receive is one that we get every day. And that’s to see our customers enjoying the food, service and surroundings we’ve worked so hard to get just right. For us, that’s what it’s all about.

That said, it’s always nice to be professionally recognised by your food industry peers and we’d be lying if we pretended not to get butterflies on the big night. Awards are also a great way to keep us striving to do the best by our customers. So without further ado, let us present the Zouk roll of honour…

Glastonbury is the worlds most well-known and loved festival and competition was tough as all traders had made exceptional efforts to make their stalls look fantastic. Zouk carefully sourced recycled and reclaimed materials to ensure the stall was in keeping with Glastonbury’s ethos. Glastonbury said ‘…it was a very difficult competition to judge.  A number of stalls were nominated by the Markets Team and were judged on the effort made to look amazing on site.  We selected our winner after the festival to give us time to go through all the photographs and nominations and are delighted to announce that Indian Street Food (Zouk) were our winners.  Well done you guys for your imagination, very impressive.’
