Rt Hon Damian Green, Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Conservative MP for Ashford
“We have a diverse food culture in Britain, of which the kebab is a firm favourite. Kebab businesses make a huge contribution to the UK with an estimated 20,000 kebab outlets supporting 200,000 jobs and generating over £2 billion for our economy.
These awards recognise the hard work and achievements of those involved in businesses across the country; from the culinary dedication they show towards their products to the entrepreneurial commitment to building successful businesses.
I would like to congratulate this year’s winners on their achievements and wish them the best for the future.”
