Bestway’s Choudrey gets CBE in Queen’s New Year Honours List for philanthropy and services to wholesale industry

Bestway CEO Zameer Choudrey has been awarded a Companion of the British Empire medal in the latest Honours list. Mr Choudrey was awarded his CBE as part of the Queen’s New Year 2016 Honours List in recognition of his contributions “to advancing Britain through his services to the UK wholesale industry and the wide array of philanthropic work he passionately engages in both in the UK and abroad.”

Mr Choudrey said: “I cannot begin to express how honoured I am to have been included by the Queen in her New Years Honours List. It gives me great pleasure to be recognised for my contributions in this manner. These honours represent everything that makes Britain great reinforcing how it doesn’t matter where you have come from, what matters is your work ethic and the impact you can make. It shows what matters is that you contribute and you help to make Britain even better, something many immigrants do on a daily basis across the nation.”

He continued: “At Bestway, we strive to sit at the heart of local communities throughout Britain, servicing them and supporting them however we can – whether that be by providing food and drink to local shopkeepers through our Wholesale business, or providing medicines and health services through Well Pharmacy, or whether that be by providing support to those in need through Bestway Foundation and its charitable work.”
