Fast-growing Newry company Around Noon took the Company of the Year title at the 11th UTV Business Eye Awards in association with lead sponsors Emirates, and was also named Fast-Growth Company of the Year.

The 17 category awards were presented at Belfast Waterfront recently in front of an audience of more than 600 business guests and Newry based businesses scooped three category wins in total, with Cathal Grant of CGDM Construction also winning Young Business Personality of the Year.



Around Noon, a maker of sandwiches and convenience snack foods for retailers all over the British Isles, has expanded rapidly with acquisitions in both London and Dublin.

Terry Brennan, Head of News and Programmes, UTV said, “The UTV Business Eye Awards in association with Emirates are a great opportunity to shine a light on some of the great work being done by businesses across Northern Ireland.



“Yet again, we have seen a diverse range of entries from right across the business world, showcasing innovation and creativity on both a local and international scale.

“2017 has been a challenging year for many businesses, but what these awards show is that there are still many companies out there that are not only surviving, but are thriving in a very competitive environment,” he added.

“These awards are a great partnership for Emirates and help demonstrate our commitment to the Northern Irish market,” said Enda Corneille, Country Manager for Emirates in Ireland.



“Emirates operates two flights daily from Dublin direct to Dubai and onwards to a wide range of worldwide destinations and Northern Ireland-based business passengers are an important part of our growing customer base.”
