Jim Harper said: “Checkout Scotland will be a fantastic opportunity for the trade to gather and recognise their colleagues’ efforts during the Covid crisis, while also supporting GroceryAid, our industry charity.

“The event will celebrate an industry that has shone during the pandemic, serving communities across the country with passion and energy. Critically, the event will also help raise awareness of the GroceryAid charity and the life-changing work it does for industry colleagues in need of a little help.”
