ByRuby wins Best Startup at Great British Food Awards


We are thrilled that client ByRuby, which provides freshly cooked, homemade meals for the freezer, has scooped the Best Startup Award at the recent Great British Food Awards.

The Great British Food Awards were launched in 2014 to celebrate the country's finest artisanal products, using home grown ingredients, and to recognise the work and commitment of the entrepreneurs and their teams behind the scenes.

The 2020 Awards have proved to be bigger than ever, with new categories and a demanding set of celebrity judges, including Raymond Blanc OBE, Masterchef's Monica Galetti, Olly Smith, Eric Lanlard and Miguel Barclay, evaluating the entries.



ByRuby won the Best Startup Award, seeing off some stiff competition. Judge John Gill, Head of Commercial Operations at Booths commented on the ByRuby range: "Seriously great tasting frozen ready meals, made only with ingredients you would use in your own kitchen. Sampled four products from the range and each one tasted like as though it was cooked from scratch that evening. Generous portion size too"

Milly Bagot, co-founder of ByRuby said “We are so happy to have been chosen as Best Startup in The Great British Food Awards, it is such an accolade and many thanks go to all of the team.”

"My company has used DRG for a number of years. They are proactive and efficient with all aspects of their work. They keep on top of our tax and accounting requirements, and help with the development of our business strategy.

We view DRG as a key supplier and crucially a partner and would highly recommend the firm – in particular to other fast growing businesses."

David Folkman, Director

"I’ve worked with a number of accountants over the years and have never found another company who offers the same level of care, support and professionalism. They’re always on hand to offer advice and guidance, above and beyond the service that I pay for. I would recommend them wholeheartedly."

Joe Hill, Director

"Very supportive and friendly company from day one."

Outdoor Academy

"I have always worked as an employee so when I decided to set up my own business, I did not know where to start. DRG took the time to explain how working as a sole trader would be more beneficial to me setting up a limited company (which I had always thought was a requirement for running a business). They gave me practical advice on the records I need to keep as well as general guidance on setting up my business and helped me claim a large tax refund after my first year of trading."

Sole Trader

"I have been a client through a number of different ventures with DRG since 2007. They have proved the benefits of a local firm with Big 4 experience in providing sound business and tax advice by being accessible, having in-depth knowledge of my business and able to form good working relationships at different levels with me and my staff. We also enjoy the benefit of their excellent accountancy and payroll services. I couldn’t recommend them more highly."

Paul Dunn-Sims, Halcyon Home Care

"I have been extremely impressed with the service level and attention to my business."
