It’s official… Taste of Bath is Bath’s Best Business Service!
If you haven’t heard the news yet, then Taste of Bath is over the moon to announce that at last week’s 2019 Bath Life Awards Ceremony, we won the Business Services Award!
We’re absolutely bursting with pride at being acknowledged by Bath’s biggest awards for all our hard work.
The Business Services Award recognises Bath’s most outstanding business-to-business offering, and was awarded to Taste of Bath for our work with a portfolio of nearly 100 local, national and international businesses.
We supply stunning gift boxes filled with local food and drink, sourced from our family of small, independent producers in Bath and the surrounding area, for corporate entertainingand company rewards, and we’re proud to offer not only a beautiful range of off-the-shelf hampers, but also a bespoke service to create the perfect gift for any occasion and any budget.
We provide some of Bath’s biggest business names with gifts for clients and partners that celebrate their home city, promoting what Bath has to offer all over the country and all over the world, as well as winning over many national and international clients with the sheer quality of our service and our offering.
The Bath Life judging panel, who were unanimous in their decision to present the award to Taste of Bath, described the business as “innovative” and “a unique concept” that “enhances Bath as a city and connects a number of businesses through both its support of local producers and its B2B offering.”
It’s a source of great pride to Taste of Bath that we’re able to support the local community in such a powerful way – not only by sharing the talents of the independent producers that we work with, and promoting their businesses on a wider platform, but also by providing larger Bath-based businesses with a fantastic way to support those small producers and share the message of what Bath has to offer.
Authenticity is at the very heart of Taste of Bath – we’re genuinely passionate about Bath and the incredible food and drink it has to offer, and this shines through in everything we do. It’s why our producers want to work with us, and why our clients come back again and again. Together, we create a virtuous circle that promotes Bath and helps all of our businesses to thrive – and we’re delighted that the Bath Life Awards have recognised the importance of this contribution.
Anyone who was at last week’s awards ceremony will know that Taste of Bath founder Helen Rich was quite overcome with emotion at the news – this isn’t just another trophy for the mantelpiece, it means a huge amount to the whole Taste of Bath team.
In our first year, we were nominated for the Best Newcomer Award, and in our second year, for the Best Retailer Award. To win the Business Services Award in our third year simply shows how far we’ve come, working incredibly hard over the past twelve months to grow our business services offering in response to fantastic feedback from our clients.
Our founder Helen is often described as a breath of fresh air in the Bath business world – as honest and direct as they come, anyone who works with her is left in no doubt that she is a genuine champion for Bath’s small businesses and the city’s food & drink scene. The huge cheer that went up from the crowd when Taste of Bath was announced as the winner (well, most of them were Taste of Bath clients, after all) is testament to the warmth of the relationship between Taste of Bath and those we work with.
We really do care about what we do, and about the impact it has – it’s not just about making the sales, but about sharing and celebrating what makes this city so special – and that’s why this award means so much.
Helen, just a little overcome, at the moment the awards were announced…
A huge, heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who has been part of Taste of Bath’s journey over the last three years, particularly our ever-growing team, our wonderful family of producers, and all of our clients and partners. If you’ve ever worked with us, then you’ve been part of this journey too, so thank you – and if you don’t work with us yet, then what are you waiting for?
