We are absolutely delighted to have been selected as a finalist in two award groups across the Midlands Family Business Awards.

Building on an already stellar year, we’ve been shortlisted in both the Fastest growing Family Business and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) categories. Jupiter will be joining fellow family businesses from across the region and hope to be crowned the winner at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on November 7.

A total of 51 regional family-owned businesses are in the final stages of the 10th Anniversary Awards with Jupiter joining businesses across the transport, IT, manufacturing, construction, and healthcare sectors to name just a few!

Joining just five other finalists in both the CSR and Fastest growing categories, we’re ecstatic to be in such esteemed company. To be recognised for both our work to support local communities through our Nancy Tweddle Foundation and for our speed of growth in the fresh produce industry, it’s turning out to be a fantastic summer.

Thrilled to be finalists across two categories

Jupiter CEO and Group MD Mark Tweddle says: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to be finalists in both the Fastest growing family business and Corporate Social Responsibility categories. To be recognised across both is a real testament to everyone here at Jupiter and it is an honour to be in the final. We are delighted to have our work recognised in the Midlands and wish all of the other finalists the best of luck’.
