Guaranteed Irish has announced the finalists of the inaugural Guaranteed Irish Business Awards 2022.
The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday March 24 at The Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin.
The awards aim to celebrate Ireland's businesses that support jobs, are committed to local communities and contribute to Ireland, its people, and its economy.
An independent panel of distinguished industry leaders across various sectors from names including Matheson, KPMG, MSD Ireland, Musgrave, Bord Bia, Chopped, SOSV, Permanent TSB, IPHA, ESW, RIAI and Blacknight had the tough task of shortlisting a total of 50 finalists after whittling down hundreds of entries.
Achievement awards including Guaranteed Irish Company of the Year, Guaranteed Irish Person of the Year, Guaranteed Irish One to Watch and Guaranteed Irish Advocate with a Business will also be presented at the event.
Brid O'Connell, CEO of Guaranteed Irish, said the calibre of entries for its first-ever awards was exceptional.
"The awards will recognise and celebrate the very best of local and international businesses that are registered in Ireland which support jobs, contribute to our communities, and showcase Irish provenance with pride," Brid O'Connell said.
"The time has come to celebrate the businesses in Ireland that genuinely strive to do the right thing and Guaranteed Irish is proud to champion those that are All Together Better," she added.
Smyth’s Homevalue is shortlisted in the E-Commerce category alongside I Love Shopping Group (Beauty Features).
