McGhee’s Bakery has been crowned the Best Family Business of the Year 2016 in the Glasgow Business Awards, organised by the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce.

The company, which was shortlisted back in August, was also commended in the category for Most Outstanding Business 2016.

The Best Family Business of the Year award recognises the achievements of established, family-owned businesses across all industry sectors, which have successfully blended strong business acumen and family engagement. The award is judged on distinctive business practices, which have helped the business prosper and grow, alongside a family commitment to smooth succession planning.

McGhees said in a statement: “This fantastic award couldn’t have happened without the hard work and dedication of every one of our colleagues within McGhee’s Bakery.

“This is another prestigious and valuable award that comes as we’re nearing completion of oru extension at McGhee’s that will impress our existing customers, as well as causing potential new customers to take notice.”

The company, which produces 3 million rolls and 750,000 tattie scones every week for delivery across Scotland, was presented with the award at a dinner at the Hilton Glasgow hotel on Thursday 6 October.
