Startup sweeps top small business award

A business which started selling home-made bone broth at markets just 18 months ago has taken out the top spot in The David Awards 2019.

The Little Bone Broth Company founder, Alex Watson, said the win was “Awesome!”
“It is rare for the Supreme Award to go to a Fledgling business,” said Judge, Pam Martin, “but Alex has done everything right.” He had created an exceptional business which had long-term potential in local, national and international markets, she said. “The Little Bone Broth Company is a true David, and a worthy winner!”
Commenting further on the win, Watson confessed, “I really do love it but, oh my word, it’s been so challenging. At times it’s almost too much … so for something like this to pop up, it’s just incredible!”
