Since 2006 the NFBP Brilliance in Business Awards have celebrated the very best of business in the New Forest. Each year the awards showcase the outstanding achievements of local businesses in areas including innovation, training, sustainability and customer care.

The awards are presented in late November with applications made during September and October of that year. One business is named NFBP Business of the Year from winners of each of the individual categories.

Below are details of the 2015 Presentation Evening which took place on Thursday 26 November. Details of the 2016 Awards scheme will be announced in the early autumn.
