Labour Councillors have congratulated Berwick Street Market’s Soho Dairy, which has won the Federation of Small Business London Retail Business of the Year award. This award was open to any retail business. Judges were looking for companies which:
- Have increased or maintained sales during the past 12 months
- Deliver a high quality service and exceptional customer service
- Have identified or exploited new markets, income stream or opportunities
- Demonstrate commitment to their employees through development and training and have good staff retention rates
The judges were impressed with how Soho Dairy is linked heavily to their local roots but has managed to keep a contemporary twist. They commented that the business has great concepts, expanding well, whilst overcoming some tough obstacles.
Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Labour’s Business, Planning and Public Realm spokesperson, said:
“Soho Dairy has been an inspiration to all for the quality of their produce, their personal service and the leadership they have shown in the campaign to keep Berwick Street Market alive. Let’s hope this is the first of many awards for Berwick Street Market traders.”
