AWARD-WIN­NING Chal­font St Peter yo­gurt mak­ers Tims Dairy has been short­listed in the 2016 Fam­ily Busi­ness of the Year awards.

Tims Dairy was founded in 1949 by the cur­rent own­ers’ un­cle, who was quickly joined by their father, and it has re­mained fam­ily owned ever since.

Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Chris Timotheou said: “Our fam­ily and her­itage have al­ways been cru­cially im­por­tant to us.

“We love the fact that th­ese awards hon­our the role of fam­ily in busi­ness. All four brothers are in the of­fice early ev­ery day and are very much hands-on in the run­ning of the busi­ness.”

Op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor Peter Timotheou said: “We would be thrilled to win.

“If you have en­joyed our yo­gurts we do in­vite you please to vote for us on­line in the Lon­don and south­east cat­e­gory.”

The Fam­ily Busi­ness of the Year Awards are or­gan­ised by Fam­ily Busi­ness United, a mag­a­zine and re­source cen­tre that cham­pi­ons and cel­e­brates the fam­ily busi­ness sec­tor.

The awards recog­nise the di­ver­sity, strength and depth of fam­ily firms across the UK and seek to high­light the con­tri­bu­tion that fam­ily firms make to the UK econ­omy.
