A Yorkshire coast brewery has been shortlisted for a prestigious award that highlights collaboration between companies in the Northern Powerhouse geographical area.

Hunmanby-based Wold Top Brewery has been shortlisted for the Export Company of the Year category of the Northern Lights Awards.

The other shortlisted businesses are multinational specialist in distributed power generation solutions Clarke Energy and car giant Nissan.

Kate Balchin, the brewery’s export and accounts manager, said: “We’re very proud to be shortlisted, especially given the calibre of the other finalists.

“It just goes to show that, when it comes to collaboration, size and turnover doesn’t matter.”

The awards will be judged by the UK Northern Powerhouse Advisory Board and celebrate business collaboration which ultimately leads to growing the Northern Powerhouse and helping to rebalance the economy.

More than 1,000 guests are expected at the celebratory awards dinner on Tuesday 21 February.
