Azets, the UK’s largest regional accountancy and business advisor to SME has today launched the Azets in Yorkshire Food & Drink Business Awards which recognise and reward the region’s thriving businesses in the food and drink industry.
Yorkshire is home to some of the most successful food and drink businesses in the UK which contribute significantly to the region’s economy.
The Azets in Yorkshire Food & Drink Business Awards aim to celebrate those businesses that have continued to excel and shown resilience, adapting to the difficult economic conditions created by the pandemic, looming recession and uncertainty of recent months. As a high profile and widely promoted event, the awards provide a platform to showcase and celebrate achievements, creating visibility and valuable publicity for those businesses involved.
The awards are open to all businesses from start-ups to established companies, small and large, across all sectors of Yorkshire food and drink. The entry process is simple – businesses provide a 300 word (max) entry demonstrating their key achievements and reasons why they should win their chosen category along with any additional supporting documents before the deadline.
Tony Farmer, Head of Corporate Finance at Azets in Yorkshire explains: “I am delighted to announce the launch of our Azets in Yorkshire Food & Drinks Business awards which is now in its fifth year. The awards have proved to be a great success and this year’s awards will be our best yet.”
“Our awards celebrate the creativity and grit of the people and businesses of Yorkshire that are striving to help our economy to grow and prosper. We’re here to showcase the county’s successful businesses and show other UK businesses that positive outcomes can be realised even in the most challenging economic conditions.”
