Award winning butchers, Aubrey Allen are celebrating again as their founder’s granddaughter has scooped a National Industry Award.
Lucianne Allen, a former criminal Barrister, has worked in the family business for 10 years and on Friday received Meat Businesswoman of the Year – Wholesaling at the first Women in Meat Industry Awards.
The awards held by Meat Management at the Royal Kensington Garden Hotel on the 16th November relied on votes from people within the industry after Lucianne was shortlisted for the awards and went on to receive most votes.
Speaking about the success Lucianne said ” to be recognised as a business woman means the world to me; having changed careers 10 years ago and having no formal qualifications in business I am delighted with the result. I invest a great deal of time in studying business books and videos to help build great teams which I am lucky enough to have . My all female marketing team entered me without my knowledge which was a bit sneaky but they are vindicated now I suppose! I hope it will inspire other woman to go into the meat industry and use their talents to improve the industry and also create a great lifestyle for themselves.”
