We've scooped a family business award

22/11/2011

Shepton Mallet based food manufacturer Framptons Limited has been awarded Family Business of the Year at the Somerset Business Awards.

Founded in 1898 by George Cranfield Frampton as an egg wholesaler, Framptons now produces a range of fruit juice, smoothies, milks, food blends and egg products and has an annual turnover of £30 million.

Now led by the third generation of the Frampton family, with George’s grandsons Clive as Chairman and his cousin Ian as Managing Director, the business has grown significantly during the past decade. 

The company has seen a £10 million increase in sales since 2009 alone and produces more than 2 million litres of product a week, compared to around 1 million litres in 2009. Alongside financial success, Framptons has also shown a commitment to the environment, and now recycles all of its production waste.

Framptons Limited also focuses on corporate social responsibility through supporting local charities and organisations, and, with the help of Framptons Transport Services, maintains the upkeep of the infamous ‘Rock Flock’ roundabout in Shepton Mallet.
Framptons also offers training courses including NVQs for its employees - more than 100 staff members have completed qualifications in the past year.

Framptons’ Chairman Clive Frampton said: “It is a real honour to have been awarded Family Business of the Year – a truly great accolade for our team. We are proud to have maintained our family values in developing and running our business, which has grown from being a small egg wholesaler to a food manufacturer with a £30 million turnover. Here’s to the next 113 years of successful business!”

With the fourth generation of the family now working within the business - Clive’s daughter Emma has joined the marketing department - Framptons intends to remain a family-owned enterprise.

Rupert Cox CEO of the Somerset Chamber of Commerce (organisers of the event) said: “Renowned for being the highlight of the Somerset business calendar, the Somerset Business Awards clearly demonstrated the entrepreneurial spirit of Somerset. The awards ceremony was once again a huge success with finalists and winners being recognised for their outstanding achievement.
“We look forward to seeing the Somerset Business Awards continue to grow and highlight the exceptional businesses based here in Somerset.”
