Associated British Ports (ABP) has sponsored the Growing Business Award at the 12th anniversary Suffolk Chamber of Commerce in Lowestoft & Waveney Business Awards Gala Evening, celebrating the efforts of local businesses and their contribution to the UK economy.

During the ceremony held in the Ivy House Country Hotel, members of ABP’s Lowestoft team presented the Growing Business Award, which was part of a total of 14 categories.

Jules Shorrock, Chair of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, Lowestoft and Waveney area, said: “Suffolk Chamber in Lowestoft & Waveney enjoys a very good relationship with ABP. We are grateful to them for once again being a sponsor at our awards.”

The ABP-sponsored award was won by Fen Farm Dairy, a Suffolk-based, family-run business that is working to regenerate the dairy industry in the region. Run by couple Jonny and Dulcie Crickmore, the farm is a cheese and butter making business which focuses on making artisan products and helping other dairy farmers on their journey to diversification.
