Award for cider firm
NORTH Somerset firm Thatchers Cider won a top award at a business show on Thursday.
The Sandford-based firm scooped the food and drink award at the Made In The South West Awards, held in Bristol.
The fourth-generation family firm has been making cider commercially since 1904 but has also developed new schemes in recent years such as a new tree planting system and revolutionary new harvesting equipment to gather its fruit.
Firm managing director Martin Thatcher said: “It’s great to receive this award.
“The South West is a region that is acclaimed for its food and drink industry, and the fact that we have so many superb, like-minded companies clustered together makes it a very inspirational place to do business.”

He added: “Thatchers is a shining example of a local business made good that remains rooted to its community.”
