THREE Kerry businesses have achieved a quality mark signifying they meet the highest standards of service and trust.

Oakview Village Childcare and Bathrooms 4U in Tralee; and Bio Force Medical, which is based in Tralee and Limerick, were awarded the coveted All-Ireland Business All-Star accreditation at Croke Park.

All-Star accreditation is an independently verified standard mark for indigenous businesses.

The accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, whose adjudication panel is chaired by Dr Briga Hynes of the Kemmy Business School at the University of Limerick, and Global Institute of Logistics CEO Kieran Ring.

“The accreditation, now held by 300 firms, is needed by thousands of small and medium businesses which operate to their own standards but have nothing to measure them by,” said Dr Hynes.

“We evaluate a company’s background, trustworthiness and performance, and we speak to customers, employees and vendors,” she said.
