IGD Awards 2015

We are delighted to announce that for the 7th year running KPMG Boxwood have sponsored the Business Transformation category at the annual IGD Awards. Thatchers Cider were presented with the award at the ceremony held in London last night. The trophy is presented to the organisation that has significantly transformed their business to achieve top line growth, operational excellence or sustainable improvements in profit.

This year the shortlisted companies included Brakes Group, Diageo, Karro Food Group and Marshfield Bakery.

Matt Clark, Partner at KPMG Boxwood, said: “Thatcher’s Cider’s long-term vision and investment approach has turned a small regional producer into a major brand in a highly competitive industry segment. The results are impressive – six times volume and revenue growth in as many years. They tuned into the changing habits of their customers, developed new products, built the brand, expanded production and opened new sales channels. In doing all of this they stayed true to the family values that underpin the business and involved their people and community throughout. As such, the judges were impressed by both the scale and sustainability of the transformation.”
