Raw pet food specialist Poppy’s Picnic has made the South West regional finals of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards. The company has been nominated in the Entrepreneurs and Team of the Year category.
The 2019 programme sees the Awards held in eight regions, Midlands, Wales, the South West, the North East, North West, Scotland, Northern Ireland, and London and the South East. The winners will then take part in the national finals in London later in the year.
Dylan Watkins, founder of Poppy’s Picnic, said: “We are over the moon to have been shortlisted. We entered the Team of the Year category because, as The GBEA team say themselves, ‘No man is an island’ and that couldn’t be more true in my experience as an entrepreneur.
“I rely on my team, from the wonderful VIP (Very Important Paws) Team answering customer queries, to our butchers, marketeers and operations team, to be able to deliver our customers and their dogs’ award-winning food. I’m thrilled that we are all being recognised together.”
Poppy’s Picnic was launched in 2016, and received four offers on BBC 2 Dragons’ Den in 2018.
