The awards will highlight the positive contribution that businesses make to the economy and to society as a whole.

David Boyd, President of Causeway Chamber, said:

“The awards which have been running since 2005 are not only about celebrating past success but are about setting future aspirations to reach new standards of excellence.  It has been a year like no other. Businesses across the Causeway Coast and Glens have been tested and challenged, but they have done what they always do, showed strength and resilience. Causeway Business Awards provides an insight into the wealth of business talent and success, across all sectors that this region has much to be proud of and this year will be no exception. The 18 award categories have been carefully reviewed to reflect the changing dynamic of our borough and we are confident that you will find a category to suit you and your business.”

Dr Peter FitzGerald CBE FREng DL, Managing Director, Randox commented:

“We have been closely engaged with the Causeway Coast and Glens region since opening Dundarave in Bushmills, a classic Northern Irish estate offering fresh local produce which has proved very popular with both the local community and other businesses.

“The onset of the Covid pandemic has been a particular challenge to our business community.  It is therefore a particular honour and pleasure, at this time, to be able to support and celebrate the robustness and successes of businesses within the Causeway Coast and Glens over the past year. As a key provider of Covid-19 testing in both the UK and Ireland we are very familiar with those challenges.   We would like to congratulate the Causeway Chamber of Commerce for bringing together the best local businesses and providing an opportunity to celebrate significant achievements and support one another.  This event will also demonstrate the business strength within the region and shows what Northern Ireland has to offer to a global business market.”

Sarah Travers will return to compere the Awards ceremony which will take place on Thursday 14th October at the Lodge Hotel, Coleraine. This is now a major event in the Borough’s social calendar, so put the date in your diary now.

Randox sponsors Féile Róise Rua Festival in Donegal

Randox sponsors Féile Róise Rua Festival in Donegal

Féile Róise Rua returns to your screens this year with an online festival programme including a live streamed broadcast from Árainn Mhór in partnership with Other Voices on the 15th of May.

Féile Róise Rua was set up in 2018 as a voluntary community based festival to revive the local music and song tradition on the island, in particular the music of local singer and song collector Róise Rua.

This year’s festival will include exclusive performances from some of Ireland and Scotland’s finest artists including Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Steve Cooney, Nia Byrne, Thomas McCarthy, Brian Danny Minnie, Anna Bean Uí Ghallachóir, Brìghde Chaimbeul, Griogair Labhruidh and Radie Peat (Lankum).


Viewers can expect to feel like they are at an intimate music session with these guests as they sing, play and interact with the audience throughout the live stream. There will be some new footage from musician and documentary maker Myles O’Reilly as he spends time on the island before the weekend. Viewers will feel as if they have travelled to Árainn Mhór to be part of the festival, including a live online singing session, dance workshops, song workshops and even a crankie making workshop.

Philip King, founder of Other Voices, said:

It’s just a delight  for all of us at Other Voices to be  partnering with Féile Róise Rua and to help bring a glimpse of this magical place to the world. As John Berger says “Songs can express the inner experience of being and becoming” and at Féile Róise Rua on Arranmore Island with songs and singing, tradition, translation and transmission at the heart of the festival, that’s exactly what happens.’

As part of the livestream the Féile Róise Rua community also hope to raise money for the local community centre which is central to life on the island and has been hit hard by the Covid 19 restrictions, causing huge loss of income.

Brian Mac Gloinn of Ye Vagabonds and a member of the Féile Róise Rua team, will host the sessions and said:

‘Between musicians and listeners, songs and tunes have their own space in the air, in our collective voices and in our imaginations. On the 15th of May, at Féile Róise Rua’s live stream, I look forward to sharing this space on the island, through our online connections, with a brilliant gathering of musicians and an audience all over the world.’

The festival is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland, Foras na Gaeilge, Ealaín na Gaeltachta , Randox, Donegal County Council and Three Ireland.

Aislinn O’Connor, Marketing Director UK & Ireland at Three said:

“At Three Ireland we’re delighted to be able to bring connectivity once again to Arranmore island – this time providing Ireland’s fastest network to the Féile Róise Rua Music & Singing Festival in association with Other Voices. So, sit back, relax, and turn the volume up on what promises to be an unforgettable weekend of live Irish music.’


It will be broadcast live via Féile Róise Rua and Other Voices on Facebook, Twitter & Youtube on 15th May at 8pm. For more information, go to or follow Féile Róise Rua on all social media.

For press enquiries please contact Amy Millar in the Randox PR team on or 028 9442 2413


Fillfidh Féile Róise Rua i mbliana le clár iomlán ar-líne, agus craoladh beo ó Árainn Mhór i gcomhpháirtíocht le Other Voices ar an 15ú lá Bealtaine.

Cuireadh tús le Féile Róise Rua in 2018 mar fhéile dheonach phobail, chun traidisiún cheoil agus amhránaíochta an oileáin a athbheochan, go háirithe ceol an amhránaí agus an bhailitheora áitiúil amhrán, Róise Rua.

I bhféile na bliana seo, beidh ceol ó chuid de na ceoltóirí is fearr in Éirinn agus in Albain: Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Steve Cooley, Nia Byrne, Thomas McCarthy, Brian Danny Minnie, Anna Bean Uí Ghallachóir, Brìghde Chaimbeul, agus Radie Peat (Lankum).

Is féidir leis an lucht féachana a bheith ag súil le bheith páirteach i seisiúin cheoil an-phearsanta leis na haíonna seo agus iad ag seinm ceoil, ag canadh agus ag déanamh caidrimh leis an lucht féachana le linn an bheoshruthaithe. Beidh píosaí úra scannánaíochta ón cheoltóir agus ón déantóir clár faisnéise, Myles O’Reilly, ón seal a chaith sé ar an oileán roimh an fhéile. Tá súil againn go mothóidh an lucht féachana go bhfuil siad linn ar Árainn Mhór, agus iad ag glacadh páirte i seisiúin ceoil beo ar líne, ceardlanna damhsa, ceardlanna amhránaíochta, agus fiú ceardlann ar conas crankie a dhéanamh.

Deir Philip King, bunaitheoir Other Voices:

‘It’s a delight for all of us at Other Voices to be partnering with Féile Róise Rua and to help bring a glimpse of this magical place to the world. As John Berger says “Songs can express the inner experience of being and becoming” and at Féile Róise Rua ón Arranmore Island with songs and singing, tradition, translation and transmission at the heart of the festival, that’s exactly what happens.’

Mar chuid den bheoshruthú tá coiste Fhéile Róise Rua ag súil le hairgead a bhailiú ar son an ionaid phobail áitiúil. Tá an t-ionad lárnach i saol an oileáin. Chuir srianta COVID 19 isteach go mór air toisc cailliúint mhór ioncaim.

Deir Brían Mac Gloinn, ó Ye Vagabonds, a bheidh mar láithreoir ar na seisiúin:

Idir ceoltóirí agus éisteoirí, bíonn a spás féin ag amhráin agus fonn san aer, inár nguthanna agus inár samhlaíocht. Ar an 15ú Bealtaine, ag beosruthú Fhéile Róise Rua, tá mé ag súil go mór le bheith i gcuideachta ceoltóirí den scoth agus lucht féachana domhanda, sa spás seo ar an oileán, tríd ár nascanna idirlín”.

Tá an fhéile maoinithe ag Comhairle Ealaíona na hÉireann, Foras na Gaeilge, Ealaín na Gaeltachta, Randox, Comhairle Chondae Dhún na nGall agus Three Ireland.

Dúírt Aislinn O’Connor, Stiúrthóir Margaíochta ag Three Ireland:

At Three Ireland we’re delighted to be able to bring connectivity once again to Arranmore island – this time providing Ireland’s fastest network to the Féile Róise Rua Music & Singing Festival in association with Other Voices. So, sit back, relax, and turn the volume up on what promises to be an unforgettable weekend of live Irish music.’

Beidh an craoladh beo le Féile Róise Rua agus Other Voices ar Facebook, Twitter agus YouTube ar an 15ú Bealtaine ag 8 a chlog trathnóna. Le tuilleadh eolais, téigh chuig nó lean muid ar na meáin shóisialta.

Saturday 10th April 2021: Rachael Blackmore wins the Randox Grand National 2021 on Minella Times

Rachael Blackmore made history when she became the first female jockey to win the Randox Grand National, on Saturday 10th April 2021.

Upon Henry de Bromhead-trained Minella Times, owned by JP McManus, the odds of a victory for Rachael were 11-1.

Blackmore and Minella Times rode over 30 fences and were first past the post in the 2021 running of the world’s greatest and most famous horse race, beating Balko Des Flos, who finished second, by six and a half lengths.

“I just cannot believe it,” Rachael said.

“I don’t feel male or female right now, I don’t even feel human!”

Unfortunately there were no crowds at Aintree racecourse this year, in light of restrictions relating to the Covid-19 pandemic, but Blackmore was cheered on by owners, trainers, stable staff and racing officials.

An audience of 8.8 million tuned in to ITV to watch Rachael’s historic win onboard Minella Times.

Dickon White, Regional Director for Jockey Club Racecourses said;

“Minella Times, Rachael Blackmore and Henry d Bromhead have given us a story for the ages and I’m grateful that ITV have helped to ensure it inspires people across our society that it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re from, if you have a dream you should go for it.”

To mark Rachael’s historic win in the Randox Grand National, Randox Health are offering 20% off all health check programmes, until Sunday 18th April. Visit to find out more.

Randox delves into the inner workings of a racing driver’s body and mind for first-ever Goodwood SpeedWeek

Goodwood SpeedWeek will bring fans closer to the action than ever before with a one-off digital technology playground that viewers can experience from the comfort of their own homes – and Randox will feature as part of the event with a documentary showing the inner workings and hidden brilliance of a racing driver’s mind and body under stress.

Being shown on Saturday 17 October, ‘The Racing Mind’ documentary looks at the psychological, physiological and chemical make up of racing drivers.

Millions of spectators will be able to enjoy 360-degree audio-visual displays, take a virtual paddock tour, use chatroom functionality to question their favourite drivers, and interact with the action through quizzes, polls, competitions and a ‘podium predictor’.

Goodwood Speedweek, which runs from 16-18 October 2020, is the most ambitious event to ever take place at the Goodwood Motor Circuit with more than 12 miles of high-speed fibre cabling being laid and 49 high-definition cameras installed, including 19 trackside cameras and 15 live on-boards. A television crew of 180 operators will help bring the action to life with 10 presenters and two TV studios required to cover all the action.

Each day will be dedicated to celebrating the automotive industry’s past, present and future – bringing together the best elements of the Festival of Speed and Revival using the latest technology.

This will be reflected in the iconic Goodwood Shootout presented by Mastercard on Sunday 18 October, with a winner-takes-all one-lap competition between some of the fastest machines in motorsport across the years, including hypercars, single-seaters and prototype sports cars.

The Duke of Richmond said;

“Technology is a core feature of Goodwood motorsport events and we strive to showcase the most innovative and forward-thinking mobility innovations. At Goodwood SpeedWeek we were presented with a unique opportunity to go one step further, quite literally placing digital right at the heart of the experience. It’s allowed us to raise the bar even higher, offering a once in a lifetime, interactive experience that is accessible to viewers anywhere in the world.”

The Racing Mind (Saturday 17th October)

In partnership with Randox, Goodwood Speedweek will show viewers the inner workings and hidden brilliance of a racing driver’s mind and body under stress.

Downpatrick announce Randox as new sponsor of Ulster National

News       About Us       Randox Health


29 January 2020

Randox Ulster National, Sunday March 22, Downpatrick Racecourse

Randox has today been announced as the sponsor of the Ulster National at Downpatrick Racecourse for the next five years.

Downpatrick Racecourse, winner of the ‘Sports Venue of the Year’ in both 2018 and 2019 at the Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards, hosts the €50,000 Randox Ulster National, on Sunday March 22, their flagship race day.

Randox, a global innovative healthcare diagnostics company, based in Crumlin, County Antrim, was founded in 1982 by medical scientist and keen horseman Dr Peter FitzGerald. The five-year sponsorship of the Ulster National sees Randox expand a racing sponsorship portfolio which includes the Randox Health Grand National at Aintree, and title sponsorship of the entire three-day Randox Health Grand National Festival at the Liverpool racecourse.

The Randox Ulster National is one of the most historic races on the racing calendar. Run over three miles and four furlongs, the race was first run in 1939 and has a long and illustrious history.

Caughoo won the 1945 and 1946 Ulster National before winning the 1947 Aintree Grand National for jockey Eddie Dempsey and Dublin-based trainer, Herbert McDowell. Laffy, owned by HRH Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother, won the Ulster National in 1962 and Pineau De Re also won Downpatrick’s centre piece jumps race in 2013 and subsequently went on to win the Aintree Grand National the next season (2014).

Dr Peter FitzGerald, Randox Managing Director, commented;

“This is an incredibly exciting time to be partnering with Downpatrick Racecourse to add the Randox Ulster National to our racing portfolio. Racing is a sport everyone can enjoy, from all different walks of life, and a partnership with Downpatrick offers us a fantastic opportunity to share our message of preventative health with a wide and engaged audience. We look forward to the first year of the Randox Ulster National, to show our commitment to this wonderful sport and to encourage people to take control of their health and wellbeing with a Randox Health Check.”

Peter Stewart, Downpatrick Racecourse Chairman, said:

“We are really excited to partner with such a respected global brand as Randox for our most prestigious race meeting and look forward to working closely together to create a wonderful race day for our customers and achieve our shared objectives.

 “The Randox partnership will ensure we continue to attract high calibre horses for the Randox Ulster National and further endorse its important position on the racing calendar.”

WAAR 2020 heading for a sell out as Randox Teoranta confirm sixth year of sponsorship

News       About Us       We Are Randox

Randox Teoranta sponsor WAAR 2020

WAAR 2020 heading for a sell out with Randox Teoranta as sponsor

Entries for the 2020 Wild Atlantic Adventure Race (WAAR) have already exceeded the total number of 2019 participants, the organisers confirmed on Friday 24th January at an event to launch the competition.

The race on 9th May, which will once again be sponsored by Randox Teoranta, already has close to 700 entrants, including Nikki Bradley who took part in the WAAR challenge in 2016 and completed the hike section as part of a team of four.

This year Nikki is challenging herself to tackle the WAAR course on her own, where she will run/walk 5km on crutches, cycle 33km of the Wild Atlantic Way and kayak 1km on the Mullaghdearg Lake, before crossing the finish line to receive the highly sought after WAARior medal.

Many athletes and both past and future WAAR participants attended the launch where a number of speakers addressed the crowd, including Irish multi-sport adventure racer Shaun Stewart who launched the 2020 event. Mr Stewart has won the event in the past two years and is looking forward to the challenge once again in May.

Speaking at the event, WAAR organiser and spokesperson Gavin Ó Dónaill commented;

“Already at this early stage in the year we have close to 700 entries for the race, representing an increase of approximately 350 on the same date last year. In May 2019, for the race itself, we had over 600 participants, along with 200 volunteers, so in January 2020 we have already surpassed the total number of 2019 participants.

“As well as Nikki Bradley, Trailblazer Mary Nolan Hickey, who ran the entire coast of Ireland in 2018, cycled around it the following year as a fundraiser for the RNLI, and is the only woman to have run every single Dublin City Marathon since its inception in 1980, is also embarking on the WAAR 2020 adventure.

“The incredible caliber of athletes the event attracts, coupled with the much-appreciated support of global healthcare company Randox, is testament to WAAR’s status as one of the biggest annual sporting events in the North West, and we are looking forward to another sell-out year.”

Dr. Ciaran Richardson, Head of Research & Development at Randox Teoranta, said:

“It is, as always, our honour to partner with the Wild Atlantic Adventure Race here in Donegal. The ethos of the race – of physical and mental health, of camaraderie and of community – is one we share at Randox Teoranta.

 “From our biohub in Dungloe in the heart of Donegal, our revolutionary diagnostic technologies for conditions including Alzheimer’s, stroke, kidney disease and gastrointestinal disorders, make a real difference to global healthcare and we will continue this vital work long in to the future.

 “Like WAAR, Randox Teoranta has become an integral part of the landscape in Donegal and we are delighted to bring the thrilling Wild Atlantic Adventure Race once again to Donegal in 2020.”

WAAR 2020, as in 2019, will be included as a round of the National Adventure Series, a collection of adventure races across the country from which competitors can earn points to become the all-Ireland Adventure Race Champion 2019. The full WAAR route, which features a 10km run, 42.5km cycle, 2km hike and 1km kayak, starting and finishing at C.L.G. Naomh Muire in Mullaghderg, was described by organisers of the National Adventure Series as “one of the best organised events” in which they had ever taken part, and “a fantastic addition to the National Series Calendar…in one of the most picturesque courses in the country.”

Anyone interested in taking part in the WAAR can visit the website at The event is open to anyone who is 16 or over on the 9th May 2020. If you would like to help out on the day of the event please send your name and contact number to

Randox Potato Festival will celebrate the Mighty Spud at the Giant’s Causeway

Randox Northern Ireland Potato Festival

Randox Potato Festival will celebrate the Mighty Spud at the Giant’s Causeway

Northern Ireland’s favourite potato-themed festival is back, bigger and better than ever, on Saturday 5th October 2019, boosted once more by the continued partnership with headline sponsor Randox.

Set against the backdrop of the world-famous Giant’s Causeway, the Randox Northern Ireland Potato Festival is a heady mix of family fun, a celebration of world-renowned potato breeder John Clarke, and a chance to sample the delights of the agri-food industry which thrives in the Causeway Coast & Glens.

Now in its sixth year, the line-up for the free event, which runs from 10am – 5pm in the grounds of the Causeway Hotel, boasts a packed programme of activities and attractions for all ages, including the Naturally North Coast and Glens Artisan Market and Food NI Cookery Theatre.

Wendy Gallagher, Causeway Coast Foodie Tours and Festival Committee Secretary, said;

“We’re delighted to welcome back the ever-popular Food NI Cookery Theatre to the Randox Northern Ireland Potato Festival, which will feature a selection of talented homegrown chefs including Trudy Brolly of Ocho Tapas Restaurant in Portrush, and Niall McGinn of Dundarave Estate in Bushmills.

“The Potato Festival will also play host to the Naturally North Coast and Glens Artisan Market, with a popular collection of award-winning local artisan food, drink, and hand-made arts and crafts.

“And for potato enthusiasts there will be a series of specialist talks on a range of topics including ‘How to breed your own potatoes’ and an exhibition of all John Clarke’s varieties.”

Joining the Randox Northern Ireland Potato Festival is a live radio show from Q Radio, which is adding its Broadcast Bus to the eclectic mix of activities on offer, including bouncy castles, a children’s animal farm, The Mighty Spud, and Cutting Edge Helicopters, who will be back in the air again offering spectacular helicopter sightseeing flights (fee applies).*

On the eve of Festival Day a ticketed ‘Super Spud Tour’ to celebrate the area’s unique potato breeding and growing heritage will be held along the beautiful Causeway Coastal Route, and will include a potato producer tour, themed lunch and an opportunity to enjoy a delicious cocktail featuring Ireland’s first potato-distilled vodka.

And headline sponsor Randox will be inviting visitors to the event to step onboard its Mobile Health Clinic, a bespoke Mercedes Benz vehicle which has taken the company’s revolutionary ‘health MOTs’ on the road.

Randox Founder and Managing Director, Dr. Peter FitzGerald, said;

“The sponsorship of the Randox Northern Ireland Potato Festival means a great deal to Randox and we are delighted to be able to bring our Mobile Health Clinic to an event which is so well-known in the area, attracts an impressive number of visitors, from both near and far, and has such a dedicated and enthusiastic committee.

“Just like the festival committee, we at Randox are dedicated to supporting local quality produce, evidenced in our production of meats, jams, chutneys and apple juice straight from Dundarave Estate in Bushmills and CherryValley Estate in Antrim.

“The food and hospitality industry in Northern Ireland is among the best in the world and we are pleased to help showcase award-winning local producers on a national platform. The local community has played a significant role in the successes of Randox over the past number of years and we believe it is important to give the same support and encouragement back wherever we can.”

The Randox Northern Ireland Potato Festival will take place in the front car park of the Causeway Hotel at the Giant’s Causeway, but in the event of inclement weather, will proceed at an alternative location in the hotel grounds.

Festival Committee Chairman Michael McKillop, Glens of Antrim Potatoes Ltd, said;

“This year the committee has worked tirelessly to bring a bigger and better potato festival to the North Antrim coast on the site of the Giant’s Causeway.  We have more fun-filled events planned with loads of arts and crafts on site and fantastic local chefs doing cookery demos.  Along with a free open day to the Causeway Centre, it will be a great family day out.”

As well as Randox as the main sponsor, the festival has benefited from financial help from The National Trust, Glens of Antrim Potatoes, NI Regional Food Programme (DAERA), Jamison Potatoes, McCurdy Potatoes, Wilsons Country, Manor Fresh, Active Packaging, First Trust Bank and Food NI.

Mr McKillop continued;

“I would like to extend my thanks to the National Trust for their continued support. Every year the National Trust is a key partner and sponsor for the Potato Festival, not only opening up the Giant’s Causeway site and providing the perfect location but giving their staff to co-ordinate the activities on the day. They also coincide the festival with their free Community Open Day welcoming everyone to enjoy their Visitor Experience and award-winning guided tours for free, providing a great opportunity to showcase Northern Ireland’s heritage to local and international visitors while celebrating the legacy of John Clarke.”

*£10 raffle tickets to win a helicopter flight for 3 people, worth £270, can be purchased by contacting the Festival Committee, with the raffle being drawn on Festival Day itself.

Randox puts exports under the microscope at NI Chamber Forum

NI Chamber Exports Forum

Putting exports under the microscope at NI Chamber Forum

The Senior Manager for Government Affairs and Strategic Outreach at Randox, Colonel Mark Campbell CBE will discuss the company’s international success at NI Chamber’s next Exporter Forum on 25 September.

Supported by Danske Bank, the initiative provides a platform for Northern Ireland’s most successful exporters to share their inspirational journeys in order to encourage others to grow export activity within their own business.

With offices and distribution in over 145 countries, Randox is one of the region’s most successful exporters and a world leader in the healthcare industry. At the event, Mark will take delegates through the company’s export story, outlining how the business has grown in international markets. Attendees will also be offered an exclusive tour of Randox’s new Science Park.

Encouraging companies with export aspirations to attend, Jonathan Elder, Corporate Banking Manager at Danske Bank, said:

“Danske Bank is proud to support the Export First Exporter forum at the brand new Randox Science Park. Randox has for many years been one of Northern Ireland’s most successful export businesses and so the chance to learn from the company’s experience in international markets will, I’m sure, be invaluable for those who attend the event. If we want Northern Ireland’s economy to grow, particularly post-Brexit, it will be essential that more of our small and medium sized businesses follow the example of market leaders like Randox and take the opportunities on offer to them to sell outside of Northern Ireland.”

Mark Campbell, Senior Manager at Randox Laboratories, added;

“From the very outset Randox has been focussed on export markets – aiming to improve diagnostics, and healthcare, on a global basis.  After some 37 years, Randox now export to 145 countries and around 95% of our product is exported.

“Achieving success in export markets can be challenging but the rewards are potentially significant – both in the potential for growth and in improving overall economic wellbeing.

“With this focus on exports in mind, we are very much looking forward to the NI Chamber Export First Exporter Forum.  This Forum will provide a valuable opportunity to explore with other Northern Ireland companies export strategies, and how to optimise the potential for company and wider economic growth from overseas markets.

Winners unveiled at Causeway Coast & Glens Business Awards 2019

Causeway Chamber, in partnership with principle sponsor Randox Health, hosted the 2019 Causeway Coast and Glens Business Awards, which was held Friday 21st June at the Lodge Hotel, Coleraine. As all enjoyed the drinks reception from Old Bushmills Distillery, the evening provided a chance to network whilst the anticipation grew before the awards presentation.

This prestigious ceremony recognised and honoured the best of the Borough’s businesses on a local and national level.

In the opening address Murray Bell, President of Causeway Chamber said;

“We have a wealth of businesses within our borough, organisations large and small, entrepreneurs, start-up innovators, all who compete at the highest level they can, and tonight is an opportunity to celebrate those talents – recognising the progress made and reaching forward to further excellence and creativity, underpinning our Chambers message that Causeway Coast & Glens Borough is an ‘Outstanding Place to live, work and play.”

350 guests attended the event including Mayor Cllr Sean Bateson, Deputy Vice Chancellor Alastair Adair, Chief Executive David Jackson, Dr Peter FitzGerald CBE FREng DL, Managing Director, Randox Laboratories Ltd, local businesses, award sponsors and the 61 finalists who eagerly waited to see if they were successful as winners of their category.

Dr Peter FitzGerald CBE FREng DL, Managing Director, Randox commented;

“It is a great honour to be here once again for the Business Awards for the Causeway Coast and Glens, a region with whom we have become closely engaged since opening the newest division of our multi-faceted company; Dundarave Estate in Bushmills. Dundarave’s collection of jams, chutneys, ciders and meats has proved very popular with both the local community and other businesses, together with whom we are able to demonstrate what Northern Ireland has to offer to a global business market.

“We are proud that through our sponsorship of this event, we can not only bring together the best local businesses, support one another and celebrate our collective achievements, but also encourage all those involved to proactively think about their health. For all of us, our health is our wealth, and indeed for the entrepreneurial finalists, many of whom are self-employed, their health is their livelihood. We might all usefully consider how we can live better for longer, to fully enjoy what life has to offer, in both our business and our personal lives. I must also say that we have been very impressed with the nominees of each category and the calibre of finalists, each of whom absolutely deserve their place in the Causeway Coast and Glens Business Awards. Congratulations to all the award winners.”

Sarah Travers who was delighted to once again host the event said;

“The Causeway Coast and Glens Borough is unique in its ability to offer a variety of locations for business development. The Chamber has truly embraced the diversity of the local business talents and rewarded each sector individually.”

Annette Deighan, Chamber Operations Manager added;

“Causeway Coast and Glens Business Awards would not have been possible without our businesses and continued support of all our sponsors. It is an honour to host these awards, to recognise the achievements and success in our region. It shows as a Borough we are continuing to excel and compete at a regional and national level.”

There were 18 awards comprising of many categories sponsored by individual companies. The judges were overwhelmed with the level of entries received which is a testament to the success of these biennial awards and the achievements of all businesses within the Borough.
