Our judges are in for a difficult decision deliberating and determining the overall winner."

"All of the finalists deserve to be recognised and celebrated. They are what family business is all about – people with a dream, family values at the heart of what they do and above all they care. We look forward to announcing and crowning the winner in due course.”
