Seven employees at Manchester based F. Duerr & Sons have been celebrating 25 year Service Awards with the company.

Duerr’s, the oldest family run independent preserve manufacturer in the UK has been making preserves since 1881.

Also present at the ceremony were Managing Director Mark Duerr, and Sales and Marketing Director Richard Duerr.

Commenting on the awards ceremony Chairman Tony Duerr OBE said: “It is personally very pleasing to present these 25 year awards (a fantastic achievement) having worked with all seven over the years. In the case of Jon and Chris their wives (Breda and Monica) also work at Duerr’s. It all adds testimony to our claim to be a committed, family run business.”
