We're super pleased to be able to share some more good news with you...
We have been announced as one of only four businesses to have reached the finals in the Regional Growth category of the Food and Drink Federation (FDF) Awards 2016.
To reach the final, we had to prove that we can compete with other big players in the food industry, including global sweet maker Haribo, and we did this by sharing our ambitious plans for future growth.
Finalists had to demonstrate a successful track record in growth strategy, strong leadership, a commitment to sustainability, and plans for future growth.
Our co-founder, Jonathan Shepherd (known to most people as 'Shep') said: “We’ve come a long way over the last two years – we’re constantly pushing for our Yorkshire Wagyu meat to be recognised as one of the best out there.
“It really is an achievement to have reached the final four in our category as we know there are some strong contenders, and we hope to spread the word about our beef with this shortlisting.”
The specialist judging panel tasked with deciding on the shortlists comprised of industry experts and sponsors.
Shortlisted businesses will learn whether or not they have been successful when the results are announced during the black-tie dinner evening at The Brewery in London on September 22. The event will be hosted by broadcaster and presenter Hardeep Singh Kohli.
FDF director general Ian Wright said a huge number of entries from across the food and drink sector were received.
“This is a great reminder to us all of the talented and dedicated colleagues we have in Britain's food and drink industry. We look forward to welcoming the finalists, guests and supporters to an evening that we are sure will be a wonderful showcase for our industry’s strength, expertise and endless creativity,” he added.
