----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------It has just been announced that Kendal based George Romney Ltd is a finalist for the Food and Drink Producers (large) & People’s Choice Cumbria category/s of the North West Family Business Awards 2023.


George Romney Ltd beat strong competition with a record number of family businesses entering the awards from across the North West region.


This first-class event will be held at The Concorde Conference Centre, near Manchester Airport.

Co-hosted by Dave Clarkson and Sue Howorth of The Family Business Community, alongside renowned food and drink writer, and presenter Nigel Barden, and will take place on Friday 19th May 2023.


Romney’s Managing Director, John Barron said: “We are thrilled to be finalists for the Food and Drink Producers (Large) & People’s Choice Cumbria awards. After a particularly tricky few years of business, it is great to see our family run business is getting recognised for the hard work we’ve done. We would like to thank our fantastic group of staff who have helped business run smoothly, the judges for putting our business through to the finals & our customers who have continued to support our business and range of confectionery products for over 100 years.”


North West Family Business Awards Co-Founder and Director, Sue Howorth said: “We were inundated with some incredible entries, and we have been burning the midnight oil to get through them as they came in right up to the wire. The judges had extremely difficult decisions to make so the finalists should be extremely proud of themselves!


North West Family Business Awards Co-director, Dave Clarkson said: "A huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time to fill out an application form and enter. We’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”


Sue Bagguley from Siemens PLC near Manchester, and who were the hosts of our Judging Day, said: “The number and quality of applications from across the North West has been outstanding, the businesses are clearly proud to be family businesses and the detail in many of the entries has demonstrated that they are very progressive and innovative.


The finalists will now receive a visit from our specially selected panel of expert judges before the judges make their final decisions. The winners will be announced at a fun and vibrant awards celebration on Friday 19th May 2023. You can find out more at
