Shufflebottom on Short List for West Wales Business Awards

Friday January 19th is a big night for West Wales businesses -- the date of the awards dinner at the Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli, to announce the winners of the 2018 West Wales Business Awards.


Shufflebottom is shortlisted in the Large Manufacturing category, alongside Burns Pet Nutrition and Castell Howell Foods. 


In the SME Manufacturing category, the short list is CR Clarke, and JR Pet Products Ltd. 


There are ten categories in all, covering agriculture, construction, food and drink, retail, services, small businesses, tourism and leisure, and training and development, as well as manufacturing. 


Among the Small Businesses -- which may develop into the large firms of the future -- the short list is John Jones & Son Ltd, JR Pet Products Ltd and Kate Glanville Ceramics.


In the Retail category, Eve's Toy Shop in Llandeilo receives a shortlisting, just after winning 'best independent toy retailer in the UK' at the Progressive Preschool Awards in London. 


The short lists show that West Wales has a wide variety of thriving businesses, deserving of wider recognition.


The awards evening will be hosted by popular TV journalist Frances Donovan, with international rugby star Shane Williams as guest speaker.
