Following on from sponsoring the ‘Small Business Entrepreneur’ category at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards in November 2016, MINI UK rewarded the winner, Nom Noms World Food, with the use of a MINI Countryman for six months.

The renowned event acknowledged the hard work and inspiring stories of some of the country’s most impressive small business entrepreneurs. This year’s winners, Lisa Sohanpal and Dr Imrat Sohanpal from Nom Noms World Food, make healthy, internationally-inspired meals for busy families. What’s more, they send a meal to a child in India for every one that is purchased in the UK.

Lisa says: “The car looks amazing with our branding, and it suits the Nom Noms brand totally. It’s fun, quirky and will certainly grab attention and curiosity on the streets of London.

“Things like this are so important in assisting small businesses to get the exposure they need, and thanks to MINI UK this will definitely help us.”
