Last night, Thursday 18th May, Fairburn’s celebrated as the business was crowned ‘Large Manufacturing Company of the Year’ in the Made in Midlands Awards 2017!

Shortlisted candidates for the Made in the Midlands Awards were announced earlier in May and this included Fairburn’s who were up for Manufacturing Innovation Award, Food & Drink Award, and the Large Manufacturing Company of the Year (above £25 million turnover) Award!

The region’s most dynamic, innovative and growing manufacturing companies battled it out at the Awards black tie ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole. Fairburn’s celebrated after winning the Large Manufacturing Company of the Year’ Award – highly praised for its demonstration of growth, innovation, competitive advantage, business and supply chain integration and brand development.

Sarah Hall, Operations Director said: “Manufacturers from across the region gathered for the Made in Midlands Awards last night. After a fantastic evening meeting other shortlisted businesses, Caroline and I we were absolutely thrilled to be crowned Large Manufacturing Company of the Year. It is such a privilege, and credit of our team’s hard work, drive and determination to be one of the UK’s leading egg producers, packers and distributors. I would like to thank everyone involved for their passion and commitment to making Fairburn’s sector leading.”

Daniel Fairburn, Managing Director said: “We took a decision to change our business model dramatically, it was a risk and some in the industry did not think it was possible.  To receive an award like this helps our family to realise how far we have come. We are looking forward to a bright future.”

As a regional winner, Fairnburn’s now head for the National Made in the UK Awards, being held on Thursday 22nd June at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool.
