“Winning this award means that all my hard work, sweat & tears have all been worthwhile, it truly amazing that my peers have recognised me as a true Entrepreneur. Four years ago critics said we would never supply the supermarkets but we did it, I hope this award will inspire other women to go into business and not be knocked down by thoughtless people”
