Vote for Dunns to win the Scottish People's Choice Family Business of the Year 2019 here.

Dunns Food and Drinks were today delighted to learn that the company is in contention for the Family Business of the Year Award 2019 (#FBOTY2019), having been shortlisted amongst the Scottish entries for the second year in succession. 

This followed a successful 2018 campaign where the company picked up the People's Choice category awards, not just for Scotland but for the Overall UK.

Nominations for the 2019 edition of the prestigious Awards were open until November 30 and we have now been shortlisted once more following a process of review. 

The Family Business of the Year Awards are organised by Family Business United, the award-winning magazine and resource centre that champions and celebrates the family business sector.  Now in their seventh year, these awards recognise the diversity, strength and depth of family firms across the UK and seek to highlight the contribution that family firms make to the UK economy. 

The awards process concludes at a Gala Reception and awards ceremony that takes place in London at the prestigious May Fair Hotel in London on June 6 where the regional and sector winners will be crowned together with the overall Supreme Champion Family Business of the Year for 2019.

Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United, the award-winning magazine and resource centre for family firms in the UK explains, "We are delighted to be able to pull together such a vibrant bunch of family businesses, some that have succeeded for numerous generations and continue to thrive, and others that are relatively young but have great values at the heart of what they do.  Not only are the shortlisted firms in with a shot at taking the Scottish title, they are also in the running to be crowned the Best of British as the Supreme Champion Family Business of the Year for 2019."

Mike Kane, partner at Turcan Connell, sponsors of this award added, "Family firms are the backbone of the UK economy and cover all sectors of the business community too.  Any one of those shortlisted would make worthy winners and ambassadors for the sector. We are looking forward to finding out more about each of them and I am sure that the decisions to determine the winner will not be easy as we seek to identify another great ambassador to fly the flag for family businesses in Scotland."
