2019/20 National Winners

National Winners & Finalists 2019/20

The 2019/20 National Final was held on Thursday 27th February 2020 at the stunning Monastery Manchester. We were joined by businesses from across the UK to celebrate the rural business sector and the successes of each and every one of our finalists. The competition was close, but, through our lengthy judging process, a panel of around 25 judges selected the very cream of the crop to take home our national awards.

We hope that all of our national finalists enjoyed themselves at our celebration of everything that makes rural Britain unique. Whether or not they won, they should be incredibly proud of themselves and all they have achieved.

“The 2019/20 Rural Business Awards has been our best year yet, and our work to promote the rural sector would not be possible without the support of Amazon and our other sponsors. The calibre of entries this year was exceptional, so we’d like to wish a hearty congratulations to all our winners.”

 

Anna Price

Co-founder of The Rural Business Awards

“The Rural Business Awards shines a much-deserved spotlight on the innovators, creators and inventors in rural communities across the UK and it’s great to celebrate their successes at this year’s national final. The calibre of businesses entering this year’s awards has been higher than ever. I’d like to congratulate all the winners and nominees and wish them continued success for the future.”

 

Doug Gurr

UK Country Manager, Amazon.

“Rural businesses make a vital contribution not only to their local communities, but to the UK economy as a whole, and it is fantastic to recognise that with these awards. This government is backing businesses across every part of the country to drive innovation and sustainable growth.”
