Congratulations to Thompson's Family Butchers on Market Place, Melton Mowbray who have won a Best Business Award in the Best Family Business Category.

Owned and run by husband and wife team, Diana and Ivan Thompson, they have been established for over 18 years. As Diana says, 'We pride ourselves on having the best. We do not cut corners, and only serve quality.' As you would expect, Thompson's offer a wide variety of fresh and cooked meats. They cook all their own hams and make their own haslet and sausages.

This award has been run throughout the month of April, and has been voted for by the general public on the local website, the best of Melton Mowbray. Hundreds of votes were counted in this closely contested competition. Closely contested ….…because Melton Mowbray really does have some great family run businesses. Here's what one of Thompson's happy customers, Trevor from Melton Mowbray said about them, 'I have bought my meat from Diana and Ivan for many years and it is of excellent quality. Nothing is too much trouble. Happy to vacuum pack your meat if you prefer not to freeze it. Always greeted on first name terms and the friendly and comical banter adds to the experience. I have recommended Thompson's to many friends and they agree that Ivan and Diana give a first class personal service.' He gave them a rating of 3 bubbles, which means 'truly exceptional'.

Runners up in the event were some of Melton's other great family businesses; The Eating House, Kings Road Bakery, Rive Nene Organic Vegboxes and Ironing 4U. All are first rate local businesses that not only offer great products, but perhaps even more importantly, a first class customer service. You only need to go onto the website, to read some of the wonderful reviews that their satisfied customers have written about these businesses. To see a picture of all the award winners, click here.
