North West Family Business Awards 2023 winners

Several Lancashire-based organisations were named among the winners of The North West Family Business Awards 2023 - including the overall winner, a farm and shop in Lancaster.

Organised by The Family Business Community, the awards drew a crowd of more than 500 to the Concorde Conference Centre, Manchester Airport. 

The awards were presented by food writer, broadcaster and proud northerner Nigel Barden along with co-founders of the Family Business Community, Dave Clarkson and Sue Howorth who have expressed their delight at the success of the event.

They said: “The turnout was our largest to date and felt a fantastic energy in the room which was incredible. We're so grateful for everyone who came out to support the awards and recognise the hard work and dedication of our North West family businesses."
