Camilleri Holdings for European Business Awards

Camilleri Holdings Limited, the caterer and retail franchise group, is to represent Malta in the 2011 European Business Awards sponsored by HSBC.

The group was selected from among 15 country representatives and will compete for a Ruban d’Honneur in the next round of the competition. The winners will be named on November 22 in Barcelona.

The European Business Awards has identified some of Europe’s brightest businesses based on their ability to demonstrate the three core principles at the heart of the awards programme. Judges were looking for organisations to represent Malta who exhibited innovation, business excellence and sustainability. “Though being one of oldest firms – C. Camilleri & Sons family business was started in 1843 as a confectionery – it was in these past 30 years that the company has evolved and diversified into catering, fashion wear, underwear, hardware, maternity and babywear,” managing director Charles Camilleri sid.

The company now represents the franchises of British Home Stores, Mothercare and Golden Point in Malta. Mr Camilleri said the company was honoured to be recognised as one of the leading organisations in Malta . He attributed the success to the staff and consultants, suppliers and customers, and its bankers, HSBC.

The European Business Awards are dedicated to raising the visibility and progress of companies which excel in delivering innovation twinned with successful commercial results while acting responsibly and positively for the environment they operate in. The 2010 European Business Awards showcased 100 Ruban d’Honneur recipients with a combined turnover greater than €766 billion who employ more than 3.5 million people.
