The Rural Business Awards

Blog Article - Large Image - Rural Business

Idealogy is a brand development and creative content consultancy with a portfolio of great global clients including Kenwood, De’Longhi, Fitness First, ABB, MettlerToledo, Honeywell, e2v, Videojet and Pall Life Sciences.

But on the other end of the client spectrum we are proud to work alongside many local organisations.

Call it wisdom. Call it balance. But when you have been based in Hampshire for the past 30 years, more often than not, local means rural.

Our passion for all things rural is there to see – businesses, we believe, comfortably reflect true country values; Besmoke, Wideye, Animal, Shanty, Weird Fish, Gingers Kitchen, Hattingley and Millbrook Beds.

For our part, in the last three years we have provided judging support to The Rural Business Awards and we’ve witnessed the extraordinary power of this business sector. Even more importantly, so has the Amazon brand – long-term partners and sponsors.

Today, as part of our sponsorship responsibility, Idealogy reaches out to as many rural businesses as possible to encourage them to apply for entry.

The RBAs recognise businesses operating across the rural landscape, dividing them into three categories: Land Based, Land Related and Other Businesses located in rural areas.
