Raw dog food manufacturer, Poppy’s Picnic is to feature in the The National Rural Business Awards in the Best Rural Start-Up category.
Poppy’s Picnic will attend the event, which will be held at Chateau Impney in Worcestershire on Thursday 28 February, after winning the south west heat back in October at a ceremony held at Bath Racecourse. Founder, Dylan Watkins said he was “thrilled to be amongst the nation’s greatest rural businesses” at the national finals.
Watkins said: “We are a proud Wiltshire business and celebrate being rural. From our food that’s handmade by fourth generation butchers using local produce, to our upcoming new production facility that will provide local employment opportunities, our rural heritage is at the heart of the business and will stay that way.
“To be at the national finals representing the south west is a great achievement for us. We have our fingers and paws crossed for the big win.”
