The Rural Business Awards (RBAs) began in 2014 and are now in their 4th year. The aim of the awards has not changed over the years with the focus on businesses operating across the Rural sector, with intention to acknowledge the breadth and depth of opportunity presented by the Great British countryside, as well as to celebrate the achievements of rural businesses, from engineering through to artisan food producers and professional services organisations.
The thirteen award categories were judged by an independent panel of judges drawn from the rural business sector, official agencies and rural charitable organisations, who focused on skills, work ethic, growth and unique manufacturing processes. The aim is to grow The Rural Business Awards to become the UK’s most prestigious and respected awards for rural businesses and to develop a strong network and community of rural business owners.
