We are delighted to have been presented with a national award by research and training charity IGD.
We received the IGD Business Transformation Award, sponsored by KPMG Boxwood. Chris Milton, sales director who received the award on our behalf says: “The fact that Thatchers Cider was recognised is testament to everyone within the company who has contributed to the growth that we continue to experience. As a family business we have always stayed true to our values, ensuring quality and taste come first, helping us attract new consumers with our heritage ciders such as Thatchers Gold and our new cloudy cider Somerset Haze, launched earlier this year.”
Matt Clark, Partner at KPMG Boxwood, sponsor of the business transformation award said: “Thatchers Cider’s long-term vision and investment approach has turned a small regional producer into a major brand in a highly competitive industry segment.”
Commenting on the IGD Awards, Joanne Denney-Finch, IGD Chief Executive, said: “We’ve had some great submissions, demonstrating the leadership, innovation and excellence that our industry has to offer. There’s no doubt that we are operating in challenging times, yet the resilience and originality that members of this industry demonstrate is truly exceptional, from small start-ups to medium-sized companies to large international ones. Many congratulations to all of our finalists and winners.”
The winners of the IGD Awards were selected by some of the industry’s top people, including representatives from IGD and companies from across the food and grocery supply chain. The results were announced on 6th October at the Awards ceremony, which was hosted by television personality Rachel Riley.
IGD is a research and training charity that helps the food and grocery industry to deliver the needs of the public.
