The winners were vetted by the MCCAA to ensure that these traders abide by the award’s code of conduct. The MCCAA checked that these companies adhered to regulations; that prices in their outlets were indicated as per The Price Indication Regulations; that consumer complaints were dealt with in a timely manner; and that whenever possible they avoided that disputes with consumers were referred to the Consumer Claims Tribunal by opting for resolution through conciliation.
The winners of the five categories each received a trophy, a certificate and the use of the Servizz bi Tbissima logo.
During the award ceremony, six consumers selected at random from those who participated in the voting process, were awarded a €100 cheque each. The consumers were presented with the cheques by the MCCAA Chairperson and the Director General for Consumer Affairs, Joyce Borg.
