Derbyshire`s Owen Taylor & Sons Ltd is crowned winner of the Manufacturing Excellence Award and a Finalist in the Midlan
Founded in 1922, Owen Taylors began as an abattoir supplying its own five local shops with meat and manufactured meat products that were made on site. Today the business is supplying hotels, pubs, restaurants, universities and hospitals across the East Midlands, with many of their award winning products.
Picking up the highly prized award Richard Taylor, managing director at Owen Taylor & Sons Ltd, said: `This is a magnificent moment for our business and has topped off what has been a terrific year for the company. Earlier having scooped the Catering Butcher Award at the national Meat Management Awards and now winning the Manufacturing Excellence Award it`s a real testament to the hard work and dedication from our suppliers and staff. We constantly strive to create the very best products for all our customers to enjoy and are delighted to be able to prove that this is the case with this type of award.`
