Director Mark named in the 42 under 42

Published on: August 20, 2019

We’re thrilled to announce that our Divisional Director, Mark Craven has recently been listed in the Business Insider’s 42 under 42.

Insider is the country’s premier business title and the 42 under 42 list has been running for 26 years. Its alumni include a host of successful young business people and entrepreneurs; everyone from the Kamanis, to Tom Bloxham and the Issa brothers.

In the early days of Insider, the average age of an entrepreneur was 52 and so in the 1990s the business publication began devising an annual list of those who would become the most influential business people in the region in the subsequent 10 years.  They called it the 42 under 42 and the list is now eagerly awaited by the business community every year.

Publication of the list will be followed by a dinner later in the year which offers those listed the opportunity to meet each other along with winners from previous years.

The announcement comes less than a year after Forrest won International Company of the Year at the 2018 North West International Trade Awards. It is fantastic that Mark’s hard work, determination and success in growing Forrest Fresh Foods has been recognised.  Congratulations Mark and the team at Forrest Fresh Foods!
