And the winner is…

Cullenders, Reigate

Judge Christine Howard says:

“The buzz and enthusiasm at this business is evident as soon as you walk through the door. The energy and passion this couple have put into their business is incredible. They have done this while also buying their first house in Reigate and juggling giving birth to two children during this time. How they managed to survive I do not know! But survive they did and indeed they seem to be thriving on all this hard work. I just could not help being happy and enthusiastic in their company. Their passion for food and the industry is very evident. Cullenders were the winners of the Surrey Life readers’ vote by miles, and they are definitely worthy winners this year, having been finalists for the last two years.”

Highly commended:

Putty Cakes, Charlwood

Godalming Food Company, Godalming
