Around Noon Winner of Fast Growth Business of the Year

19 March 2018

Congratulations to former PLATO Participant Company, Around Noon, recently announced winner of the prestigious ’Fast Growth Business of the Year' and 'Company of the Year' awards at the UTV Business Eye awards. The latest awards build on the company’s success late last year when it was one of just two companies headquartered in Northern Ireland to be included in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 which ranks private companies with the fastest growing sales. The other company listed was fit-out and construction firm Mac interiors, who are also based in Newry. Set up from a kitchen table in 1989, Around Noon is run by Chief Executive Gareth Chambers, son of founders Frances and Sheila Chambers. The company supplies sandwiches and salads under its Scribbles brand as well as bakery items from Sweet Things. Around Noon recently bought the Sloughbased sandwich firm Chef In A Box.
