We’re doing little whoops of joy here at Breckland Orchard HQ, as we’ve heard we’ve been shortlisted for Family Business of the Year in the East/East Anglian region 2017.  The rest of the shortlist include some pretty formidable household names – like Aspalls and Adnams….who we know and love….so actually just to be in the company of such greats is a huge compliment in itself.

We are a family owned business….no silent shareholders lurking in the shadows, no venture capital funds telling us what to do, no Angel Investors asking us to compromise our values and our ethics.  We are a business that exists to make great tasting soft drinks, and we love dealing with other family owned firms.  We think that being a family business allows us to do what’s right – right by our staff, right by our suppliers, and right by our customers. And do you know what?  That feels the right place to be.

So its lovely… to be recognised by FBU [Family Business United] for our small first generation family business. Cheers!
