Sponsored by The Sign Maker, the Business Action ‘Made in North Devon Award’ recognises North Devon manufacturers and producers whose products are enjoyed locally and exported across the UK and internationally.

North Devon has a long history of manufacturing and production. Its manufacturing ranges from traditional goods and products to hi-tech equipment and materials used in aviation, medicine and other sectors. Its food and drink products range from meat and fish to speciality ciders, wines, beers, marmalades.   

The Made in North Devon Award is open to manufacturers or producers of physical products, including materials, equipment, food and drink.

Businesses developing technology products such as software sold as a product (e.g. a wordprocessing or database system) can also enter. (Businesses creating digital content such as websites can enter the Digital and Online Achievement Award.)



The judges are looking for evidence of one or more of:

  • Skill and expertise in the manufacture of products
  • Innovation in the design and manufacture of high-quality products
  • Investment in training and skills and in manufacturing equipment
  • Transfer of skills and knowledge from one generation to another 
  • Adoption of new manufacturing technology and practices
  • Export success both across the UK and internationally

From a lone metalwork craftsperson or artisan food producer to a large manufacturer of composite materials, the Made in North Devon Award highlights businesses maintaining North Devon’s long tradition of manufacturing and taking it into the future.
