Shortlisted for North & Northern Ireland Family Business of the year!

by Laura Farrall on February 4 2021


We are overwhelmed to have been shortlisted for this year’s Family Business of the Year award!

The Family Business of the Year Awards were created in 2012 to celebrate the UK family business sector, to recognise the diversity of family firms across the country and to celebrate the contribution that they make.

After a year like 2020, it was such a great feeling to open an email letting us know that we were shortlisted, and that #Team FG were being recognised for their great work and continued determination they deliver every day. We are so proud and thankful for such a great team who wear the Farrall's name with pride. 

Being a family business is so important to us and our core values of trust, honesty and respect underpin everything we do, and we work hard to make sure that these values are not only felt by our customers, but by every member of our team as well so we can ensure we deliver peace of mind every time. 

"We are in an industry where we are lucky to work alongside many other family businesses and it is so encouraging to see that family values are still going strong among many of the family business as they go through the generations! I will forever be proud to continue on the heritage, started by my grandparents in 1956, with my sisters" Matthew Farrall, Managing Director

As Paul Andrews, founder of Family Business United, the awards says “I have said it before but family firms really are the backbone of the UK economy and across the UK they will be vital as the economy recovers from the events of 2020.  We look forward to finding out more about the family firms shortlisted for these awards and crowning some great winners in due course.”

We cannot wait to show the judges more about our great family business and our core values and how they continue to shape the type of business we aim to be as we grow into the third generation and hopefully many more generations to come!

In addition, we are also in the running for the ‘People’s Choice Award’ which is determined solely by public vote. We would be very grateful if you could vote for us in the North & Northern Ireland regional sector here.

We look forward to the awards ceremony in June and wish all family businesses shortlisted the best of luck!
