We are delighted to announce that Agri-Tech East has been selected to appear on the 2018 European Business Awards – Ones to Watch List for the United Kingdom. It is the only organisation involved in farming and agriculture and one of only 20 in the less than £5m turnover category.
The European Business Awards have been running since 2007 and previous winners include household names such as BMW, IKEA, Zurich and Leroy Merlin. But the awards are particularly designed to discover and showcase companies that were not as well-known and bringing them greater prominence such as Tangle Teezer, SamHall, Coffee Island, The Cambridge Satchel Company and Brompton Bicycles.
The awards are sponsored by RSM, The London Stock Exchange and Germany Trade and Invest and aims to support the creation of stronger, more successful, innovative and ethical business communities.
The panel of judges was drawn from across Europe and comment that Agri-Tech East was chosen as it demonstrates exceptional achievement and reflects the programme’s core values of innovation, success and ethics.
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards, said: “The ‘Ones to Watch’ lists will set a benchmark of success for the European business community. The talent, dedication and innovation at the heart of these companies creates jobs and opportunity, and is what drives their country’s prosperity.”
Jean Stephens, CEO of sponsor RSM, said: “We work with companies across Europe and beyond, advising them on all areas of their business and we are passionate about encouraging success and prosperity.To be listed as a ‘Ones to Watch’ is a real accolade.”
Agri-Tech East will now have the chance to compete in one of the 12 categories of the European Business Awards to become a National Winner in in the UK. If successful, it will then take part in the grand final in May 2018 and a chance to enter a public vote, which attracts attention and support from across the globe.
