Business Action Magazine – North Devon Business Awards 2023

What is made in North Devon?

Business Action magazine knows that manufacturing is a major sector in North Devon, but is often invisible to the general public who look mainly for consumer products in shops.

That’s why we invite manufacturers to enter the North Devon Business Awards 2023 to help raise awareness both in the business and wider community.

In each of our first three years of the awards, the North Devon Business of the Year has been a manufacturer: 

  • The Clovelly Soap Company
  • Smart Manufacturing
  • Diamedica

and we want even more manufacturers to enter.

We have a specific category for manufacturing and engineering – the Made in North Devon Award.

We also have a category to recognise the area’s often unnoticed but impressive export performance – the International Trade & Exports Award.

And there are categories for Best Employer and Young Achiever to recognise apprentices, trainees and entrepreneurs.

Free to enter, the 12 categories in full are:

  • Best Employer
  • Best Retailer
  • Business-to-Business Excellence
  • Consumer Service Excellence
  • Digital & Online Achievement
  • Excellence in Building & Construction
  • Excellence in Hospitality & Tourism
  • International Trade & Exports
  • Made in North Devon
  • Outstanding New Business
  • Sustainable Business
  • Young Achiever

And if you know a business you think deserves to win an award – such as a supplier or customer – you can nominate them for an award.

Entries close on 1 March 2023.

Good luck!
