Rural Business Awards finalists


Ten Cornish companies have been shortlisted in the Rural Business Awards Regional Finals.

A land-based training company, an organic farm and a gift shop are just some of the Cornwall businesses honoured in the awards which are now in their fourth year.

The ten shortlisted businesses will discover if they have won a top slot at a ceremony in October at Bath Racecourse. The successful winners from the 13 categories will then be put forward to the national final, which takes place in February 2019.
