Cheeky Chompers Founders Celebrate Natwest Everywoman Awards Win

Julie Wilson and Amy Livingstone of Cheeky Chompers were announced as winners of a Natwest Everywoman Award at a ceremony attended by hundreds of leading figures in business and Government. These women are the epitome of entrepreneurial excellence whose companies’ combined turnovers amount to approximately £95million.

This year’s ceremony, held at The Dorchester in Mayfair, marked the 15th anniversary of the Awards programme – one of the UK’s most prestigious initiatives recognising the achievements of female entrepreneurs. At the glittering ceremony Julie and Amy were announced winners of the Demeter Award (sponsored by Nutriment Ltd) - awarded to the most inspirational woman running a business trading from 3 to 5 years. 

Julie and Amy are manufacturers of the award winning chewable dribble bib for teething tots, which has just sold its millionth product. From a simple idea inspired by their own experience of having to constantly re-sanitise their children’s dropped teethers, Julie and Amy spotted a gap in the market and created Cheeky Chompers. After personally designing the Neckerchew, sourcing the best materials and testing each product for quality, Cheeky Chompers hit the shelves in 2013 and can now be found in some of the UK’s best-loved retailers such as John Lewis, JoJo Maman Bebe, Dobbies and many speciality stores. 

Julie Wilson commented: “We are delighted with our win. It was amazing to be recognised by Everywoman in the company of such impressive business women. When we founded the business in 2013 we could not have imagined we would win this award, nor how quickly we would grow the brand. It’s exciting to think about where we will be in another four years!”
