Somerset based business goes to royal palace

A BLAGDON business attended Buckingham Palace for The Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2011.

Yeo Valley Farm received its third Queen’s Award for sustainable development.

They joined 12 winners from across the South West who had the opportunity to meet the Queen and other members of the royal family.

Managing director Tim Mead said: “Winning just one award was a huge honour.

“To have been recognised for a third time, for sustainable development is something we are immensely proud of and is a great way to celebrate our fiftieth year.
