London Stock Exchange welcomes Creative Nature, the winner of FSB, celebrating small business awards 2018
Creative Nature, which develops and markets a new range of innovative 'free-from' healthy foods, was recognised by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) because of its continuous product innovation, inventive marketing, strong export model, and rapid growth. It also scooped the FSB Scale-up Business of the Year Award. The scale-up superfood brand, based in Surrey, beat fierce competition from more than 132 UK finalists selected at 12 area award final made, selected from more than 2,000 entries from right across the UK.
Mike Cherry, FSB National Chairman, said:
"This year's FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards clearly illustrated how small businesses are embracing and using innovation, technology and exporting opportunities to drive the UK's economy, inspire the next generation and, in many cases, help to look after our planet.
"Small businesses make for a strong economy, and it is through supporting small businesses such as Creative Nature that the UK will continue to be at the forefront of global enterprise.
"I’m very much looking forward to our 2019 awards opening for entries this summer."
FSB Small Business of the Year Award winner, Julianne Ponan, CEO of Creative Nature, said:
"I’m thrilled to be opening the Market as the FSB Small Business of the Year 2018. As a small business, innovation is the key to the sustainability of our successful business performance. We constantly focus on developing new and exciting products. Our products will constantly push the boundaries of 'free-from' and will introduce new taste and eating experiences for consumers. Having support from FSB really helps us to achieve business excellence."
