GreenAcres Woodland Burials will represent the cemetery sector and the UK at this year’s European Business Awards.
The company, formerly known as Woodland Burial Parks, has been chosen as a national finalist in the ‘Customer Focus’ category of the 2012/13 awards.
Nicky Whichelow, group marketing and sales manager at GreenAcres, said: “We’re delighted to be selected to represent the UK.
“We’ve been operating for more than 10 years in the cemetery sector and it’s an honour to be recognised as one of the leading organisations in our country and our field.”
GreenAcres is a five-time winner in the Cemetery of the Year Awards and holds Green Apple, Green Flag, Green Hero and Investors in People accreditation.
CEO of the European Business Awards Adrian Tripp remarked: “Over the past six years we’ve received an incredibly high standard of entries from organisations that are passionate about their business. However, very few get the chance to fly the flag for their country and compete across Europe to be recognised as one of Europe’s leading companies.
“It really is an exceptional accolade to be picked as a national finalist and, together with our sponsors and supporters, we’re looking forward to seeing GreenAcres Woodland Burials in the next round.”
