Record Number of Lancashire Businesses Receive Award

The Chair of the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership, Steve Fogg, has expressed his delight at a record number of Lancashire businesses receiving recognition and being honoured in the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2020, saying ”The Queen’s Awards are given for the highest degrees of excellence and are one of the most prestigious awards given to businesses.  It is wonderful that a record-breaking eight Lancashire-based businesses have received the award this year.

”We have one award winner in the innovation category – Simply Doughnuts, based in Blackburn- who will have needed to demonstrate considerable commercial success as a result of innovation, and the other seven in the trade category from all parts of the county who will have had to show sustained year on year growth in international earnings.  To win such an award is an outstanding achievement and a testament to the calibre of businesses we have in Lancashire.  This is welcome news for the county and I would like to wish them every success for the future.”
