Deborah Bolton, managing director of Riverside Bakery, part of Addo Food Group, has won East Midlands Chamber’s Businesswoman of the Year award. 

Riverside Bakery is the UK’s leading chilled quiche manufacturer. The Nottingham site has its own specialist manufacturing facility and development team.

The awards celebrate the achievements of women across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. Bolton was nominated by her colleagues to receive the award, in recognition of 10 years of growth and success at the Addo site in Nottingham, under her leadership.

Samantha Hart, head of group HR at Addo Food Group, said: “Deborah is an inspiration to so many at Addo as she constantly drives the business forward and identifies opportunities that keep the site thriving.”

Bolton said: “I was incredibly honoured to be nominated. More than 300 people work at our site in Nottingham, and each and every one works together as a team to help make the business the success it is.”

Last September, Pork Farms Group rebranded as Addo Food Group, following the acquisition of the chilled savoury pastry business Kerry Foods.
