Award success for egg firm


An Alford based egg producer has made its way to the final round of two major Midlands based business awards.

LJ Fairburn & Son has been shortlisted for Family Business of the Year and the Fastest Growing Family Business in the Midlands Family Business Awards. The team will now battle it out against other regional businesses in a bid to claim top spot.

Established in 2010, The Midlands Family Business Awards is a charitable initiative organised by Nottinghamshire family business​ The Wilson Organisation. The awards aim to create an ethical, supportive community for the region’s family businesses.

Fairburn’s has now been invited to present to a panel of judges for both awards with the winner of each category being announced in November.

LJ Fairburn sales and brand director Sarah Louise Fairburn​ said: “It is an incredible honour to have made the final selection of two of the award categories. As a regional family business, we take enormous pleasure in being able to contribute to our local economy and employment.

“The Midlands Family Business Awards are a fantastic opportunity for us and other local family businesses to thrive upon the hard work, drive and enthusiasm that goes into making our businesses a success.”
