Top-14 allergen free challenger brand Creative Nature has been named International Business of the Year at the Surrey Business Awards.

These awards are in association with Surrey Chambers of Commerce and recognise the achievements of businesses throughout the county. 

Creative Nature has had many successes this year and this award is their latest moment of recognition. Their CEO, Julianne Ponan, received an MBE for her contribution nationally to business and to the allergy community in the New Year Honour’s List. 

Julianne said, “as a company we have had been lucky this year and receiving my MBE was a massive career and personal highlight. We went to the awards and did not expect that the successes would continue and for that we are extremely humbled and grateful.”

Julianne and her husband Matt Ford, who is operations director and has been with Julianne since the beginning of Creative Nature. 

“Being up against four other successful companies it seemed like it wouldn’t be in the cards for us this year. To hear our name being called out was such a shock and rush of adrenaline and joy,” Julianne said.

“I would like to thank the judges at the Surrey Business Awards for acknowledging Creative Nature’s business accomplishments and our championing of allergy inclusion. We are so proud of the company and the team. With this award, it’s amazing that we can mark another milestone in the company’s development.”

Creative Nature is dedicated to education about allergies and producing products which cater to people excluded from mainstream food products. The company exports their products to xxx countries and this year have exported for the first time to the USA (name others too). 

The Surrey Business Awards this year contained 16 categories and was hosted by British comedian and actor, Hal Cruttenden. If you would like to learn about Creative Nature visit
