This first-class event will be held at The Rum Warehouse, Titanic Hotel, Liverpool with host, food writer, and presenter Nigel Barden, and will take place on Friday 13th May 2022.

“We are over the moon to be finalists in the #NWFBA22! Being a family business is so important to us and we constantly work to make sure our family culture & values continues to be felt and shared by our team as we continue to grow as a business and through the generations.

A huge well-done and thank-you to our whole team who work so hard to get Farrall’s to where we are today, without their dedication and passion our wheels would simply stop turning. Being up for awards like these really encourages us that we are continuing to move in the right direction and that Family is and will always be what we’re all about.” says Matthew Farrall, Farrall’s Group Managing Director

Co-Founder and Director, Sue Howorth said: “We were inundated with some incredible entries and we have been burning the midnight oil to get through them as they came in right up to the wire. The judges had extremely difficult decisions to make so the finalists should be extremely proud of themselves!

Co-director, Dave Clarkson said: “A huge thank you to everyone who has taken the time to fill out an application form and enter. We’ve been absolutely blown away by the strength and diversity of applications.”

Jacqui Jackson from Thomas Jardine & Co and 2022 North West Awards Chair of Judges said: “The number and quality of applications from across the North West has been outstanding, the businesses are clearly proud to be family businesses and the detail in many of the entries has demonstrated that they are very progressive and innovative.

The finalists will now receive a visit from our specially selected panel of expert judges before the judges make their final decisions. The winners will be announced at the glittering ceremony on Friday 13th May, You can find out more information about the awards at
