A Cornish energy broker which is sponsoring one of the categories in this year’s Taste of the West Awards, have themselves been shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Total Energy Solutions, based in Stoke Climsland, has been shortlisted for ‘Small Business of the Year’ at the annual Devon Chamber of Commerce awards.

Total Energy Solutions are up against three other companies including a beauty salon, events organiser and digital content firm.

Alastair Carnegie, managing director of Total Energy Solutions, said: “We are fortunate to live and work in such a fantastic part of the country, which has an abundance of vibrant and award-winning businesses. We are justly proud that many of them are our clients, and are serving up some of the best food, drink and hospitality to attract visitors from around the world.

Total Energy Solutions are sponsors of this year’s Taste of the West ‘Best South West Hotel’ award. Now in its 25th year, Taste of the West aims to celebrate all that is great about food and drink production, as well as retail and hospitality throughout the region.

Alastair added: “A big part of our ethos at Total Energy Solutions is supporting and working with local businesses and charitable organisations, so we were delighted to be nominated ourselves.

“We’re up against some tough competition but being on the shortlist is testimony to the hard work and commitment of our team, and we look forward to the ceremony in September.”

Winners of the Taste of the West Awards will be recognised at an award ceremony at Exeter Cathedral on October 4th, while the Devon Chamber Awards will be staged at the Duke of Cornwall Hotel in Plymouth on September 16th.
