Judges were looking for a sustainable business that capitalises on the diverse strengths and abilities of the family members involved and has a plan for future generations.
Winner: Lane Farm Country Foods
Ian and Sue Whitehead began Lane Farm Country Foods more than 20 years ago and have been diversifying and innovating ever since. As a family, their passion for the business is unflagging and their areas of expertise mesh together to form a cohesive and effective whole.
Highly commended: Anchor Smokehouse
Judges were impressed by John and Gemma Raven’s dedication to keeping alive traditional methods of curing and smoking in Lowestoft. Father and daughter clearly work well together and bring different but complementary skills to the business.
Highly commended: Kenton Hall Estate
Judges described Kenton Hall Estate as a family business in the truest sense, with mum, dad, two daughters and their aunt all taking a hand. The McVeigh family has worked hard to diversify the business, to a quite dizzying extent.
