Agri-Tech East has been awarded the accolade of National Networking Group of the Year at the SME Business Awards 2019, in a glittering black tie gala at Wembley on the 6th December against strong competition from across the UK.
It is well recognised that SMEs (small and medium enterprises) drive innovation and competition in many economic sectors. Every year the SME Business Awards celebrate the businesses that have delivered an impressive contribution within their industry.
Commenting on winning the award, Director Belinda Clarke, said: “We are delighted to have won this national award, as it recognises the dedication and commitment that Agri-Tech East’s small team offers our members of all sizes; championing innovation in food and farming.
“And to win a business award is always special; as we are often mistaken for being government funded, it is good to have the acknowledgement that Agri-Tech East is a business! We receive no core public funding and have grown organically through giving value to our membership.
“We have many exciting plans and events for 2020 and being awarded National Networking Group of the Year is a fantastic way to round-off 2019!”
Presentation of the national award follows the announcement earlier this year (4 July) that Agri-Tech East won the ‘Networking Group of the Year’ at the SME Cambridgeshire Business Awards. Finalists and winners from all 17 SME Business Awards categories were amongst the 600-plus guests at the prestigious awards in London on Friday.
