Tims Dairy Win Family Business of the Year 2017
12th June 2017
Family yogurt makers Tims Dairy were deservedly awarded Family Business of he Year 2017 for London and the South East. Chris, Peter, Bides and Tony Timotheou, the four brothers who currently run the business were very honoured at having won this top accolade from Family Business United.
Tims Dairy was founded 68 years ago, in 1949, by the current family’s uncle, Euripides Nicolaou who was then joined by the current owner’s father Michael Timotheou. Family has always been central to the success of Tims Dairy, from the skill set and experience required to make high quality yogurts to the strong bond needed to build and grow the brand. The brothers are hugely proud of their Greek family heritage too. Family is at the core of their ethos and success and this remains as strong today as it has done from the beginning, and will be the guiding force for growth into the future.
Managing Director Chris Timotheou said “The vision of our uncle and father in establishing the business and their hard work have been our inspiration and we know they would be very proud of what the family has achieved – and of this award. However, none of this would have been possible without the dedicated team around us. The family would like to dedicate this particular award to our mother, Eleni Timotheou, who continues to be our inspiration on a daily basis.”
Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United who are responsible for the awards added, “Tims Dairy is a great business by four brothers and they have a fantastic product which has clear links to their family heritage. The judges were impressed with the way that the business has adapted over time, embraced the family values within their organisation and continued to make their presence felt in a competitive sector.”
