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.”



We’re pleased to announce that the MINI Cooper D 5-door Hatch has won the Business Car Manager award for Best Compact Company Car of the Year.

Voted by the organisation’s independent panel of experts for the second year in a row, this fleet favourite turned heads for a number of reasons. Achieving CO2 emissions from just 95 g/km and a fuel consumption of 78.5 mpg (combined), it can significantly lower company car running costs.

It’s also efficient when it comes to space – with more seats, doors, legroom and luggage capacity (a generous 278 litres in total), the MINI 5-door Hatch is built for business. What’s more, it boasts a wide range of standard features including Keyless Go, a USB audio interface and Emergency call.

Ralph Morton, editor at Business Car Manager said: ‘It’s a double for the MINI – the second successive year for the Hatch to win this title. And it’s not hard to see why: the great looks and desirable brand name are backed up by hardnosed financials.
