About The RBAs

The aim of the Rural Business Awards is to give recognition to businesses operating right across the Rural sector. The CLA define rural businesses as fitting into three broad categories – Land Based businesses, Land Related Businesses and Other Businesses located in rural areas. Our category selection this year aims to draw together businesses from across these three broad areas to acknowledge the breadth and depth of opportunity presented by the Great British countryside, as well as to celebrate the achievements of our rural businesses, from engineering through to artisan food producers and professional services organisations.

Importantly the awards are organised by rural business for rural business and judged by people who understand the rural sector. Businesses operating in the Rural sector employ in excess of 3.4million people within over 600,000 businesses, and the sector is growing rapidly. In our partnership with the CLA, with support from last year winners, entrants and partners we are positioned once again to generate considerable excitement, interest and pride in the achievements’ of our Rural Business sector.

The thirteen award categories will be decided by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, official agencies and rural charitable organisations.

Our aim is to grow The Rural Business Awards to become the UK’s most prestigious and respected Awards for rural businesses.
