The national awards that celebrate the best of British family businesses.
Family Business United is delighted to announce the family firms that are in contention for the Family Business of the Year Awards 2020.
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 eighth 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.
Open to family firms of all generations, sizes and sectors, these awards really do recognise some outstanding family firms and really help to put family businesses on the map.
The deliberations are over and the team at Family Business United are delighted to announce the family firms shortlisted for the 2020 awards where the overall winner will take over the title that was awarded to St. Austell Brewery who were crowned Supreme Champions in 2019.

As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United 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."
"Family firms are the backbone of the UK economy and cover all sectors of the business community too. The shortlisted family firms come from all over the country and we are looking forward to finding out more about each of them and determining the winners. It will will not be easy for the judges who will select their regional winners, winners of various sectors and ultimately indentify another great ambassador to fly the flag for family businesses in the UK as the overall winners."
"All of the shortlisted firms are also in the running for the People's Choice awards where the public have their say in determining the winners."
"It is great to see the awards go from strength to strength each year and for such great businesses to be in contention too. Shortlisted firms come from all sectors too with strong family values at their core and a real pride in doing what they do and we look forward to welcoming them to London in June."
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 4 where the regional and sector winners will be crowned together with the overall Supreme Champion Family Business of the Year for 2020.
