Ottery Brewery will face several finalists in a bid to scoop ‘The Grichan Partnership Sustainable Business Award’ at the 2016 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards. The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories. They will now prepare for live presentations next month to an expert judging panel who will decide the overall winners. This year’s award ceremony will take place on Tuesday, November 15, in London.
The criteria for this category specifically looked for initiatives that have embedded ethical or sustainable business practices, helped staff deliver better customer service, increased market share or customer loyalty and supported strong leadership and management.
These will also have created competitive advantage, contributed to significant growth, transformed the organisation or wider industry, improved overall financial performance and achieved operational excellence. The finalists were chosen from the hundreds of businesses that entered or were nominated across 18 award categories.
Patrick McCaig, director at Otter Brewery, said: “This great news comes whilst we celebrate our first quarter century as a family-owned regional brewery supplying pubs, sports clubs and venues across the South West. From humble beginnings that really came about through Mum and Dad’s pioneering vision, the brewery today remains true to those engrained family values, strong eco credentials and a desire to support the local community. Everything we do comes from the heart and that is one of the biggest ingredients to successfully maintaining Otter Brewery for now and the future.”
Tom Broughton, group brand director of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards, added: “We are now looking forward to the next step of the process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
