We did it!
We are honoured to be crowned Family Business of the Year at the 2014 ROCCO Business Awards, particularly in a year that saw the highest number of entries in the history of the awards!
Porrelli Managing Director, Enzo explains, “Winning the Family Business means so much to us all at Porrelli, it’s is great to be recognised by the Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce – Paisley has been the home of Porrelli Ice-Cream since it’s beginning in 1925 and local area and community have become close to our hearts. We’re delighted that we will be entering 2015 with such an accolade especially because we will be celebrating our 90th in business next year which is a milestone we’re all extremely proud of.”
The 11th ROCCO awards took place at the Normandy last Friday the 14th November and were hosted Fred MacAulay in front of a sell-out audience of 500 guests. From Porrelli we had Enzo, Ines, Serena and Enzo’s father Sandro attend the awards.
Tom Johnston, the Chamber President opened proceedings with a look back over the last year focusing on what the Chamber has achieved in its 50th anniversary plus the big moments in Scotland throughout 2014.
Well done to all the companies that took part, congratulations to the shortlisted and eventual winners in all categories.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Renfrewshire and thanks to all the sponsors whom without the Rocco’s would not be possible.
