Qualicum Beach company named as one of the best in B.C.

Local company makes the shortlist in provincial competition

The B.C. public has voted and local business The Edge Food Energy Company has been named one of the top 10 best small businesses in the province as part of the Small Business BC Successful You Awards Contest.

The Edge Food Energy Company is competing for the Best Online Marketer Award. This award recognizes integrated email and social media marketing campaigns that best demonstrates creativity, originality and appeal.

Throughout the last two months the company gained enough online votes from their community to be named a top 10 finalist in this award category, moving on in the contest.

The Successful You Awards Contest recognizes the contributions outstanding B.C. entrepreneurs make in six award categories. This year’s finalists come from diverse sectors such as technology, hospitality, tourism and health care. Over 25 communities in British Columbia are represented.

Finalists were selected by the residents of B.C. who benefit from these businesses, with votes collected online using social media, e-communications and word of mouth. The top 10 will go on to submit an application which judges will use to decide the top 5 finalists from each category, announced on January 30, 2013.

The winners will be announced on Feb. 28, 2013 in Vancouver.
