Nowt Poncy are on their way to Wembley

Lancashire-based producer Nowt Poncy Food Group have secured their place as Finalists at The National Family Business Awards to be held at Wembley Stadium on 13th July.

The awards were founded 10 years ago to honour and celebrate the extraordinary 4.8 million family-owned businesses from all over the UK which form the engine room of the British economy.

Amalia Brightley-Gillott, Managing Director of Family Business Place who host the awards says, “We’re over the moon to welcome Nowt Poncy as Finalists at this year’s awards. They’re an exceptional example of how family businesses are leading the way, continuing to innovate and thriving in today’s competitive, economically uncertain world.”

Karen Walker, co-founder of Nowt Poncy, commented “We are so excited to be recognised as a finalist by such an amazing organisation. Nowt Poncy was founded by my husband, Julian Abel, and I three years ago and we have always run our business with integrity, honesty and with the highest standards. We feel that this recognition is for all of our hard work and the beliefs we hold about family businesses being the backbone of our country. To be a finalist is amazing and we have everything crossed for the big night at Wembley!”

Over 100 finalists from all four corners of the UK and Ireland will now go head to head across 10 categories, judged by an independent panel. The winners will be announced at Wembley Stadium on 13th July in what’s set to be a spectacular 10th anniversary celebration of the awards.
