Ben Pinniger the founder of BP Milling won the Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the recent Enterprise Wiltshire Awards.
Ben was up against a very strong field but the Judges really liked his hard work ethic and the positive environmental improvements his fish feed provides.
“This is a fantastic achievement for us in our first 12 months of trading and hugely encouraging to have our hard work recognised” said Ben. “It is great to have such an endorsement from Enterprise Wiltshire and I look forward to making the business more successful this year”
In addition to the Award Ben also received a cash prize which he is looking to invest in new production plant to increase his manufacturing capacity. “The recently launched BP Milling website has increased our volume of business and I need to keep my customers happy by producing good quality fish feed so the award was very timely” stated Ben.
