Congratulations to the Glasgow Business Awards Green Champion and the Cheshire Business Awards Business of the Year

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had the honour of presenting awards to two very worthy businesses as part of our sponsorship of the Glasgow Business Awards and Cheshire Business Awards. Clyde Shopping Centre scooped the prestigious Green Champion Award in Glasgow while Forest Gin Ltd was crowned Business of the Year in Cheshire.

Speaking of their success, Jo Heraghty, Senior Manager – B2B Marketing said: “The winning businesses were selected from an impressive shortlist – definitely not an easy decision to make. Both Clyde Shopping Centre and Forest Gin have shown that with tenacity, innovative thinking and a passion to succeed, anything is possible.

“While both businesses are incredibly different, both understand the importance of teamwork and the power of coming together to achieve a common goal. Other businesses will no doubt be inspired by their achievements and will hopefully be encouraged to consider the small changes they can make to give themselves an edge“.

Speaking of their win, Andrew Forrester, Centre Manager at Clyde Shopping Centre said: “We are so proud of our team and what we’ve achieved in the last few years and are delighted that our efforts have been recognised with this award.

"Being a business that operates in a sustainable way is so important to us and to our customers. A couple of measures we have implemented are already paying off, like our on-site recycling plant which allows us to recycle 95% of our own waste and not only reduces our carbon footprint but saves us around £15,000 each year. I would encourage all businesses to bring a team together to think about the ways you can save energy – start small, even minor changes to your processes or staff behaviours can make a real difference".

Commenting on their Business of the Year accolade, Karl Bond at Forest Distillery said: "It feels amazing to be recognised at the Cheshire Business Awards for all of our hard work. The award win has given us a huge boost as a small team and we’re excited for the future as we continue to drive our passion into the business.

There are hundreds of small-batch distillers in the UK at the moment so we’ve had to be incredibly tenacious when it comes to establishing ourselves as a craft distiller with a difference. We make sure we offer every visitor to our distillery an unparalleled experience and create every bottle with love, attention and pride."

Congratulations once again to our winners – we can’t wait to see what they both do next!
