Elisabeth Och, marketing director, Hay Hampers, said: “We are thrilled to have the honour of taking part in this special celebration at The House of Lords and being chosen as one of the top 100 small businesses in this country.” Lord Young of Graffham, former Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and Government Adviser on enterprise and small business, hosted the event.
He said that small businesses played an acritical role in fuelling the British economy. “They are the true backbone of our economy, helping to drive growth across all areas of the country. Hosting the impressive businesses in this year’s Small Biz 100 was a huge pleasure, and it is only a small part of the recognition they deserve for their entrepreneurial spirit shown day in, day out.
