It has just been announced that Bury based Dunsters Farm is a finalist for the Wholesalers category of the North West Family Business Awards 2020.
Dunsters Farm beat strong competition with a record number of 192 businesses entering the awards from across the North West region.
This first-class event will be held under the wings of Concorde in the purpose-built hangar and events centre at Manchester Airport with host, food writer, and presenter Nigel Barden and will take place on Friday 6th March 2020.
“We are honoured to be announced as a finalist in the North West Family Business Awards. We are a third-generation family business and have been based in Bury for over 55 years. Our team works incredibly hard every day to ensure we are offering the very best products and service to our customers and it’s great to have this commitment recognised by the judges” explains Jeremy Mathew, Joint Managing Director.
Founder and Co-director, Sue Howorth said: “We were inundated with some incredible entries and we have been burning the midnight oil to get through them as they came in right up to the wire. The judges had extremely difficult decisions to make so the finalists should be extremely proud of themselves!
Co-director, Dave Clarkson said: “A huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time to fill out an application form and enter. We’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”
Jacqui Jackson from Thomas Jardine & Co and 2020 NW Awards Chair of Judges said: “The number and quality of applications from across the North West has been outstanding, the businesses are clearly proud to be family businesses and the detail in many of the entries has demonstrated that they are very progressive and innovative”
The finalists will now receive a visit from our specially selected panel of expert judges before the judges make their final decisions. The winners will be announced at the glittering ceremony in March. You can find out more information about the awards at www.northwestfamilybusinessawards.co.uk
