Hogans Fine Food Company win Best Independent Retailer 2014

Don’t delay if you want to be in with a chance of being hailed one of Falkirk’s leading businesses in 2015.

The closing date for entries to this year’s Falkirk Herald Business Awards is next week.

Already there has been a huge interest but there’s still time to beat Monday’s deadline of 5pm.

The awards have a new main sponsor for 2015, as well as venue for the popular prizegiving ceremony. The Aurora Hotel Collection is sponsoring the prestigious competition, which annually recognises the companies and individuals who have made their mark on the Falkirk district economy in the previous 12 months.

There are 11 categories to enter with another two awards announced on the night: Outstanding Achievement of the Year and Business Personality of the Year.

Proving that you don’t have to be a long-established company to be in the running, 2014 saw Hogan’s Fine Food Company take the Best Independent Retailer award having only set up their business in Falkirk town centre less than a year before.

They just pipped Richards Family Butchers Ltd and Sisters Boutique after the judges noted: “In another extremely strong category, the judges were full of praise for the winner’s desire to play a full part in the community while still trying to establish their business.”

Those who successfully make the shortlist, will be invited to the final judging round which will take place between October 26 and November 6.

The awards ceremony will take place at Airth Castle Hotel on Thursday, November 19.
