About Us

The Family Business Network are here to champion family businesses across the North West, recognising their achievements and celebrating their successes in style!

An evolution of the ever-popular Family Business Awards in Cumbria, the North West Family Business Awards are organised by The Family Business Network; and will provide a fantastic opportunity for family firms to share and celebrate their success stories. Open to family businesses of all shapes and sizes, over 10 categories are available to apply for.

The inaugural Awards are set to take off in first class style, underneath the wings of Concorde no less! The glittering awards ceremony will be held in a purpose-built hangar at Manchester Airport that is home to the iconic G-BOAC British Airways Concorde, the famous flagship of the British Airways fleet.

Awards host, food and drink broadcaster Nigel Barden, is from the North West, having grown up on a farm in Lancashire. He specialises in promoting British ingredients and artisan producers, particularly in his role as chairman of judges for The Great Taste Awards, Farm Shop & Deli Awards, World Cheese Awards, British Cookery School Awards, Deliciously Yorkshire and host of the National Fish & Chip Awards.
